Windows Defender is renewed to better protect users

Windows Defender enables better security management

The objective of this major renovation of Windows Defender is to allow users to better manage the security not only of the main computer, but also of other connected devices. These computers can have operating systems such as Android, iOS or macOS.

Administrators will have the ability to monitor antivirus, avoid Phishing attacks, receive security alerts or analyze possible compromised passwords from a single security panel where everything is centralized for greater ease.

This is very interesting to be able better control security from other appliances. A traditional antivirus has the ability to detect viruses, malware or any threat that tries to find out on that system. For example in Windows, this antivirus would alert us if we have entered a malicious page and have downloaded a file that may be problematic. Now, what if we have an infected mobile phone connected to the network?

Precisely the renewal of Windows Defender will facilitate this that we mentioned. It will allow us to have everything in one single panel from which to detect malware beyond the computer itself.

Keep in mind that we have more and more connected equipment to the home network. This has also made security solutions offer tools to better manage connected devices and provide users with more possibilities. However, it is not always simple and the way to manage it is accessible to everyone. It is also important to avoid false positives with Windows Defender.

Home Security Suite

Now what Microsoft intends is to offer users a suite room to manage home security. All this in a single panel from which to control the security of devices with Windows 11, Windows 10, iOS, Android or macOS.

Is this what will allow manage security also from other devices that are connected to the home network. One more way to maximize security and prevent the entry of threats and problems. At the moment it is something in tests, although they have already shown that it will have antivirus, detection of compromised passwords, security against Phishing attacks or security monitoring, among other functions.

Any Network Administrator home will be able to add devices to that security panel. These computers will have to be connected to the network and, as we have indicated, they will not necessarily have to have the Windows operating system.

Disconnect for the moment when this new function will be available, although it is expected that it will arrive in the coming months. It will undoubtedly be an interesting tool with which we can have greater control of the equipment connected to the network and thus avoid security problems.
