Microsoft asks Windows 10 Enterprise customers to test new anti-exploit tech

Microsoft today asked enterprise customers to test a new anti-malware, anti-exploit technology in Windows 10’s baked-in browser.

Windows 10’s latest preview, tagged as build 16188 and released Thursday, includes Windows Defender Application Guard, a virtualization-based feature that isolates the contents of a tab in Edge, the OS’s default browser, from the rest of the system.

While Application Guard was announced in September, and went through limited testing in the months since, today marked its first appearance to all Insiders running Windows 10 Enterprise. Users must manually toggle on Application Guard from a setting dialog, then open a tab within Edge by selecting “New Application Guard Window” from the browser’s menu.
