    Microsoft revealed new security features of the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update yesterday to improve Windows 10 device security.

    The company revealed a new set of tools, all build around Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection: Windows Defender Exploit Guard, Windows Defender Application Guard, and improvements to Windows Defender Device Guard and Windows Defender Antivirus Protection.

    Note: It is unclear right now if any of the new features will be made available to consumer machines running the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, or if they are all reserved to the Volume Licensing offers Windows 10 Enterprise E5, Windows 10 Education E5, or Secure Productive Enterprise E5 as referenced on the Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection system requirements page. The articles are clearly aimed at a business audience.

    EMET's development was put on ice by Microsoft, with the company claiming that Windows 10 made EMET something that users of the operating system would not need anymore. This was rebuked, but it did not stop Microsoft from announcing July 2018 as the month in which support for EMET would be dropped.
