Attackers haven’t been slow to take advantage of the quick transition to hybrid work. As the world adapted to working outside the office, cybercriminals and nation-states alike have increased their targeting, speed, and accuracy every day. According to new information from Microsoft’s 2022 Work Trend Index, these shifts have elevated “cybersecurity issues and risks” to the top of the list of worries or concerns for company decision-makers in the upcoming year. Security and IT teams are very concerned about malware, stolen credentials, phishing attacks, devices lacking security updates, user mistakes, and physical attacks on lost or stolen devices as they attempt to protect their workforce.
More than 9.6 billion malware threats, more than 35.7 billion phishing and other malicious emails, and 25.6 billion attempts to hijack our enterprise customers by brute-forcing stolen passwords were all stopped in 2021 by protections built into Windows, Azure, Microsoft 365, and Microsoft Defender for Office 365. This amounts to more than 800 password attacks per second. We have a unique understanding of what our customers need to do to protect themselves from threats both now and in the future thanks to the intelligence we receive from this, along with the 8,500 security professionals we employ and the 24 trillion security signals processed by our cloud every 24 hours. We will be able to assist in protecting our customers from wherever and however they choose to work thanks to the latest hardware and software required for Windows 11, which is offered alongside our ecosystem partners.
You’ll find substantial security enhancements that, by blending modern technology and software, protect the chip to the cloud in a later version of Windows 11. Microsoft has made ground-breaking investments in hardware security breakthroughs like Secured-core PCs to help protect our Windows users. Our research reveals that compared to PCs that don’t follow the Secured-core requirements, these systems are 60% more resistant to malware. The Windows 11 hardware baselines were built on a basis that was aided by the enhanced security these devices offer. We are expanding security even further in the next versions of Windows with integrated protections that can help stop sophisticated and focused phishing assaults. As more corporate devices are delivered directly to consumers, we’re also enhancing security for your applications, sensitive data, and devices and giving IT the power to lock security configurations. Here’s a glimpse at what Windows 11 has in store to help our clients in overcoming the greatest security challenges posed by distributed work environments and the evolving threat landscape.
Microsoft is committed to fixing gaps in popular attack vectors like the ones we discussed today while also making ongoing investments in enhancing Windows’ default security baseline. This initiative’s goal is to make and enhance Windows users’ security experiences by default. Windows 11 helps businesses handle the new security concerns of the hybrid workplace now and in the future with layers of security and a built-in chip to the cloud. As we continue to power the business of the future, we design additional defenses and make Windows more secure by default with each version.
