Microsoft has unveiled a new Windows 10 software customized for the Chinese government to improve security, including modifying the program to prevent data that is typically collected from being transmitted to other devices. The product addresses concerns by the Chinese government over network security, including the desire to locally store data—such as details on the hardware or applications being run—and to prevent overseas parties from accessing sensitive information. The Chinese government version also will have a customized Help function, said a representative for Microsoft, which formed a joint venture with state-owned China Electronics Technology Group to develop the program. CETC owns 51% of the joint venture and has traditionally developed technology for the Chinese military and civilian use. Microsoft developed the special Windows 10 version in an effort to do business in China, according to The Wall Street Journal.
