Microsoft’s best kept security secret – EMET

Microsoft_Security

Did you know Microsoft has a free downloadable tool available that can increase the security of Windows significantly?  Most people don’t know, but Microsoft’s EMET (Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit) is a freeware security toolkit that’s made to help add an extra layer of safety for system admins.  You aren’t an admin?  That’s OK, you can still use EMET to help protect your PC from unknown types of viruses and malware and it costs nothing.

On February 3rd Microsoft released an update for EMET that adds support for Windows 10 so now’s a good time to give it a try.  You can download EMET directly from Microsoft then check out this helpful Howtogeek guide to learn how to easily set it up and use it.  Another great thing about EMET is how it works great with GlassWire.

Try EMET and post about your experiences in the GlassWire Forum.
