The security of our data is an issue that is not on the agenda. In an increasingly technological world, the fears of seeing our sensitive data held by third parties is a constant fear. In computing, Windows 10 and Windows 7 are among the most widely used in the world. But which one will be the safest?
Microsoft’s operating systems have always been the most appealing to virus and malware creators. Something perfectly understandable because they are the most used globally, something that allows them to reach a greater number of victims. But has Microsoft improved in the fight against such?
It should be noted that Microsoft has always advertised its Windows 10 as the most secure of all. It is normal for any company to say this about their products. After all, the primary goal is to sell that same product so that at the end of the month profits are reported.
We now have an independent company to support such claims. The Webroot comes stating that Windows 10 appears much safer than one of his predecessors, even for home users.
Remember that Windows 7 was one of the most popular OS ever in Microsoft’s history. After a Vista that disappointed greatly, Windows 7 came to give a breath of fresh air to the company software of Redmond.
Windows 10 vs Windows 7. Which is safer?
Now, the company Webroot now released its data on the analysis of market malware in 2017. According to her, only 15% of malware found were present in Windows 10. A number that contrasts sharply with the 63% found in 7.A popularity that has been maintained over the years, even with the arrival of version 8 and 8.1. Only with the arrival of version 10 is that users began to leave the 7, but still there are many who remain faithful to the version released in 2009.
The company also claims that the malware discovery rate at the end of 2017 was 0.07 percent for Microsoft’s operating system version 10, compared to 0.17 percent for version 7. Regarding the enterprise market, Webroot claims that Windows 10 is more than twice as secure as 7.
Obviously, this data will please the company led by Satya Nadella. After all, what they want is for people to adopt the latest version of their operating system. And these data will certainly appease many fears in terms of security.
