It’s a well-known fact that Windows 8 was designed to be a more stable and more secure version of Windows, so security experts are now applauding Microsoft’s efforts in this regard.
Besides the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Secure Boot technology, Windows 8
also comes with security tools easily accessible to beginners too, including a refreshed version of Windows Defender.
This is no longer an anti-spyware utility, but a full-featured antivirus product. That’s why Windows 8 is the most secure operating system on the market, Gunter Ollmann, vice president of research at security company Damballa, told TechTarget.com
This means that Windows 8 is not only the most secure Windows version ever released, but it’s even safer than Mac OS X and Linux distributions, such as Ubuntu, he suggested.
