Next Six Security Updates for Windows 8.1 Release-4 Next

Windows 8.1 will be optimized for biometrics – particularly fingerprint readers. This is great. The cross-over error rate for biometric readers, which is where you get false positives and negatives, has been drastically improved over the last few years. With this improvement comes a renewed hope that passwords may someday go the way of the dodo bird. Henry thinks eventually a mix of biometric technologies – iris recognition, facial recognition, behavioral patterns and of course fingerprints – will become the norm.

Recently, Microsoft provided new information about the upcoming release of Windows 8.1, which includes updates to the security features. They are definitely steps in the right direction. Paul Henry, security and forensic analyst at Lumension, takes a closer look at some of these new features and what they mean for your organization.
