Third, the new firewall and network protection area will give information on the network connections and active Windows Firewall settings. This will also show links to network troubleshooting information, more of a network hub.

Lastly, the new center will provide app and browser controls. Here, you can adjust setting for SmartScreens for apps and browsers. Additionally, new family options settings will let parents control parental options, activity reports, and much more.

The new Windows Defender Security Center will arrive later this year, with the Creators Update. It sounds awesome, and should be a huge update on what we have now.
