How to Harden Your Computer With Windows Security

If you own a Windows 10 device, your operating system comes with a range of security tools that can assist you to strengthen your PC. Windows Security (formerly Microsoft Defender) offers malware and antivirus protection as well as firewall and security settings.

Its robust antimalware software in real-time, Core isolation, and hardware-level security features (like the security processor and Secure Boot) can help to protect you from various types of threats, without slowing your device. Windows Security also lets you keep track of your device’s health and performance, manage your account protection and the options for signing in to your device, and more.

Even if you’ve got best passwords and other security measures in place, it’s possible for malware to get into your system and cause issues. It’s vital to regularly backup your data and upgrade your operating system. Windows 10 comes with a variety of backup tools, including cloud storage services that allow you to easily protect your files.

You can use Windows Backup, File History, or Recovery Drives to backup regularly your system and restore it in the event of an emergency arises. It’s also worthwhile to consider cloud-based backup options, such as OneDrive and Google Drive, as well as other backup tools designed for enterprises.

The restriction of access to your device is important. Be sure that no one is granted Administrator access. This will stop anyone who uses your computer from making significant modifications that could put your data at risk. You can accomplish this by creating individual Standard accounts or by restricting access to your device by using Parental Controls.
