Getting Started with Windows Security

In Windows 10, Microsoft has introduced a new software platform called Universal Windows Platform which allows developing Universal Apps that can run on multiple platforms like Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and XBox without the need to be re-written for each. The new technology is still fresh in the industry and since its popularity is minimal compared to Android and iOS, the security aspects and interesting methodologies are still avenues to be ventured.
