According this article, Microsoft's 'Project Sonar' service may soon be available to users outside the company.

Codenamed "Project Sonar," the service "dynamically analyzes millions of potential exploit & malware samples in VMs (virtual machines) and collects terabytes of data during that analysis every day," according to a recent Cloud and Enterprise Group job posting describing the service. From the job posts about Sonar, it's not clear to me if Microsoft will allow customers to run Sonar and then amass and analyze the data collected, or if Microsoft will run Sonar and allow users to analyze the data gathered.

Windows 10 IS malware...but sadly, this tool doesn't detect it as such. FAIL.

I thought it will be about analysing sound signals captured from windows 10 devices in our homes ;)

Multiple companies are doing this now. Cisco's FireAMP is similar (Immunet is the free version as far as I understand).
