Windows 10 1903 on ARM Gets a Virtualization-based Security Feature

September 29, 2019 / Mayank Parmar

Windows 10 version 1903 on ARM has gotten an additional virtualization-based security feature that creates secured regions of memory that are isolated from the operating system. These secured and isolated regions of memory can then be used by security solutions so that they are better protected from vulnerabilities in the operating system. In Windows 10 1903 build 18362.383 and later, certain ARM devices have a Virtualization-based security feature that uses the Windows hypervisor to create isolated regions of memory from the OS. Virtualization-based security uses the Windows hypervisor to create isolated regions of memory from the standard operating systems. Windows can use this security feature to host security solutions while providing greatly increased protection from vulnerabilities in the operating system. For more information, see Virtualization-based Security (VBS).
