The new beta build of Windows 11 that Microsoft has released in the beta channel features exciting functionality in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint’s built-in antivirus, which now blocks ransomware attacks better.
Microsoft noted that starting with builds 22621.450 and 22622.450, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint also better detects and intercepts “complex cyber attacks.”
“We have improved the functionality of Microsoft Defender for Endpoint in terms of calculating and blocking ransomware attacks,” explains the developers of the corporation from Redmond.
However, in a recent tweet, one of the developers, Brandon LeBlanc, declined to provide additional details regarding the new functionality when asked.
In addition to improving the fight against ransomware, Microsoft has finished copying storage at low bandwidth or an overloaded WAN, as well as file compression with configured Server Message Block (SMB) Compression.
Previously, users encountered error 0x80070026 when trying to copy files from network drives, and Microsoft Edge freezes when using “IE” mode. The corporation also eliminated these errors in new test builds.
