Microsoft's ultimate goal is to provide improved security in Windows 10, strengthen it protection from zero-day attacks, ransomware and other cyberthreats other than malware and whose detection is usually based on old detection methods.
The entire Hexadite team will be hired by Microsoft and the company will be integrated into the Windows and Devices Group, which will mean emphasizing the improvement of security features in Windows 10.
