Security with Windows 10: Understanding and Deploying Device Guard

Ever since the early days of Windows Update and the introduction of Windows Firewall, Microsoft has significantly improved its position on endpoint security – and adjusted to various new threats along the way.

When information theft and online “spying” activities were the primary concerns of businesses, for example, Microsoft acquired an anti-spyware product that evolved into Windows Defender. Later, with the proliferation of threats such as complex viruses, Microsoft responded by adding an anti-virus engine to Windows Defender. Today, Windows Defender is automatically installed with Windows 8 and 10.

Still, while such advances have been widely deemed “good enough” for consumer and small-business customers, they arguably come short of what you would term a true enterprise solution.

1E believes that, with Device Guard, Microsoft has finally come close to achieving precisely this.

For Device Guard to be truly effective as part of Windows 10, however, it needs to be properly installed, and properly understood.

This exclusive 1E White Paper will give you a detailed answer to the following questions

  • What is Device Guard designed to achieve?
  • What does Device Guard do and how does it do it?
  • What are the risks of not using Device Guard?
  • How should you implement Device Guard?
