About security, there are some better things so far, but I don't see substantial improvements, so I wouldn't "upgrade" just for the sake of those features. The best for me seems to be the built-in two-factor authentication. A properly configured system together with safe usage is most often enough to avoid most problems (but rarely practiced, as the default Windows settings are a disaster waiting to happen, security-wise).
Consider other factors instead of wheater to go or not for Win10, in my opinion.

A brief description of those improvements can be found on Wikipedia:

Windows Defender since Win8 IS MSE, just renamed and bundled with the OS. It behaves exactly the same as the external thing in Win7 and before.
