Microsoft is adding Fluent Design elements in Windows Defender Security Center with one of the latest Windows 10 Redstone 5 update. It appears that Windows 10 Redstone 5 could play a big role in improving the Fluent Design and UI elements of applications and components in the operating system.

Windows 10 Redstone 5 update due in the fall comes with some important changes in Windows Defender, one of which is Fluent Design. The preview build of Windows 10 Redstone 5 update shows the new Fluent Design language elements in Windows Defender Security Center.

Windows Defender Security Center in Redstone 5 also supports the accent colour that you picked in settings. Microsoft has improved the interface by adjusting the padding and spaces between the elements. Furthermore, all categoryes are now rendered properly and it shows the accent colour in the title bar even when Sets is disabled.

Microsoft is also bringing support for Linux (WSL) to Windows Defender firewall. Windows Defender Firewall could show prompt to ask access to certain settings. Furthermore, users will be also allowed to add specific rules for a WSL process in Windows Defender Firewall. “The Windows Defender Firewall will prompt to allow access just like it would for a Windows process when the port starts accepting connections,” Microsoft explains in a blog post.

Microsoft has improved the security features in the operating and Windows Defender could outclass the competitors in the coming years. Last month Microsoft provided a bunch of interesting figures regarding the adoption of its product, and how Windows Defender is a fantastic antivirus. Microsoft says that than 50 percent of Windows 10 devices are using Windows Defender, and the claim makes sense given as Windows Defender is pre-installed.

“With our antivirus solution being used on more than 50% percent of the Windows 10 PCs deployed in commercial organizations, it is now the most commonly used antivirus solution in commercial organizations on that platform,” says Brad Anderson, Corporate Vice President, Enterprise Mobility and Security.

Microsoft is proud of its antivirus solutions because of the impressive performance of Windows Defender throughout 2017. Is Windows Defender your first preference? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
