There is a pinned topic "Future changes to..." in each product's forum where users can post proposals for improvements and changes.

Regarding Folder Shield, this is not the way we would like to go since current competitive solutions are more-less trivial and unreliable.

You can use HIPS rules to control which applications can write to specific folders, however, malware could inject into trusted processes and make changes in protected folders anyways. Or the same could be accomplished by macros in documents that are opened by trusted processes (Office applications).

The problem is what happens when that program gets hacked then infected. Best example of this is the ccleaner incident a few years back when someone managed to infect ccleaner. The problem is it is a well used and often respected program but if it was marked as trustworthy that could cause issues

A penetration testing concern tested Windows Defender controlled folders for bypass capability last year: https://www.nyotron.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Nyotron-Windows10-Report-April-2018.pdf .

To dispel a few myths, WD controlled folders held its own against common code injection techniques against its default allowed processes, Such was not the case for any user created whitelisted processes. However and pointed out in the article, most users would probably not create any. Such was not the case however in regards to advanced code injection techniques such as APC based code injection, WMI based, and Word Macro based. The question is how Eset's HIPS mitigated protected folders would fare against the same.

Then there is the case of malware based privileged escalation techniques. Well if employed and directed against WD controlled folders, assume all your files will be encrypted. Since this article was written prior to Win 10 1903 WD tamper protection feature, maybe the article noted system modifications would not be possible. I certainly hope so for users relying on WD controlled folders protection.
