According to foreign reports, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella (Nadella Satya) said on Tuesday, Microsoft is through a bold action to protect Windows users from digital security threats, andMicrosoft has made the most important contribution to the company's network security: free Windows 10 upgrade.
In the annual Microsoft Government Cloud (Forum Microsoft) held in Washington on Tuesday, Nadella said to the participants, 2015 is a very prominent issue of network security. Eight the largest scale of the data breach incident, which resulted in the data records of 160000000 users have been implicated." Nadella said this to the global economy has caused a $3000000000000 impact.
Nadella said, Microsoft is building an internal network defense operations center (Defense Operations Center Cyber), the potential of the network threat analysis, and coordination of the company's response strategy. In addition,Microsoft also created a corporate network security group (Cybersecurity Group Enterprise), to provide customers with threat assessment and monitoring.
Nadella believes that regardless of the success of these initiatives Microsoft, the vast majority of users,The most critical factor in ensuring network security is the installation of the latest version of the Windows operating system, and this does not require the user's money and time.
Over the past period of time, Microsoft has been to allow users to upgrade to the latest version of the Windows operating system, to ensure that their network security. Analysis of Windows user data in 2014,Microsoft found the old version of the Vista Windows operating system users, the probability of infection is four times the risk of Windows 8.1 users.
From the beginning of this year, Microsoft has upgraded the operating system to the user to upgrade to Windows 10. Under the leadership of Nadella, Microsoft is transforming Windows from a product into a service.

At present, there are still many computers in the world are still running the old XP Windows operating system.XP Windows is not safe and famous, but also not eligible for free upgrade to Windows 10.
When Microsoft developed XP Windows, the company's products are very unsafe, like Red Code and Nimda and other viruses in the Internet, the threat to Microsoft's business. The situation is bad, so that Microsoft founder Bill Gate (Gates Bill) in early 2002 has issued a full memorandum, require all employees to be cautious about network security issues. Gates at that time said, "the end,Our software should fundamentally ensure that security issues, so that users will never be concerned about this."
