Microsoft will launch the Windows 10 Redstone 5 OS this fall with a lot of new features and changes. One of them is the rebranding of security hub Windows Defender Security Center. The company changes the name of the hub to Windows Security. The hub includes all the OS security features such as parental controls and Windows Defender antivirus scanning options. Windows Security will also group all the necessary tools to protect user data.

More improvements coming in future Windows 10 builds

Besides the name change of Windows Defender Security Center, there will be more new features and improvements included in the future Windows 10 builds for Windows Insiders who will receive the new features for testing gradually.

Regarding the name change, Microsoft said that Windows Defender Security Center is now called Windows Security.  More changes are being made to the way that threats and actions are presented.

You can still get to the app in all the usual ways – simply ask Cortana to open Windows Security or interact with the taskbar icon. Windows Security lets you manage all your security needs, including Windows Defender Antivirus and Windows Defender Firewall.
