According to Microsoft, This feature builds on our previously announced Windows Defender Antivirus sandboxing capability and expands existing tamper protection strategies across Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection.

Home users can have this future by default when Windows is installed and its automatically turn on when users upgrade the windows or enable the Cloud-delivered protection.

Enterprise customers can enable this future but only be managed from the Intune management console.

In this case, the local device admin users will not be able to change the setting due to the security concern to prevent locally override the setting by malicious apps or threat actors.

Tamper Protection

“Enabling this feature prevents others (including malicious apps) from changing important protection features such as:

  • Real-time protection, which is the core antimalware scanning feature of Microsoft Defender ATP next-gen protection and should rarely, if ever, be disabled
  • Cloud-delivered protection, which uses our cloud-based detection and prevention services to block never-before seen malware within seconds
  • IOAV, which handles the detection of suspicious files from the Internet
  • Behavior monitoring, which works with real-time protection to analyze and determine if active processes are behaving in a suspicious or malicious way and blocks them.

Users can test this future in any recent Windows Insider build released during March 2019 or later.

Live API Attack Simulation

94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. As a result, cyber-attacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise.
Key takeaways include:

  • An exploit of OWASP API Top 10 vulnerability
  • A brute force ATO (Account Takeover) attack on API
  • A DDoS attack on an API
  • Positive security model automation to prevent API attacks
