The Windows 7 wind down has begun: on January 14, 2020, Windows 7 will lose all forms of support, including security updates that are crucial for a lot of customers. Microsoft is wasting no time in urging its enterprise customers to upgrade to Windows 10, noting that even today Windows 7 isn't able to keep up with the security features found in its latest operating system.
Some of those features include biometric login through Windows Hello. With that, users can log into their computers by scanning their fingerprint, face, or iris.

Other security features that Microsoft points to include Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, which uses machine learning to allow businesses to respond to threats faster.
