Windows 11 starts rolling out to support PCs earlier this month. Microsoft has explain some of the safety features for Windows 11, includeing enhanced hardware security, privacy controls, and application isolation and controls, among many others.
The safety requirements also faces criticism because end of Windows 11 support for a lot of older machines.
Microsoft has stay firm on security being at the core of all machines running Windows 11.
Enhanced Hardware-Level System Security
Windows 11’s security begins at the hardware level by the company’s recommended TPM 2.0 requirement to be eligible to install the update.
Using the chip-level security the ”Windows 11 stores sensitive data behind additional security barriers, separated from the operating system,” Microsoft said.
This means important information like encryption keys and a user’s credentials are store safely and protect from unauthorise tampering and access.
Robust Application Security and Privacy Controls
Microsoft also adds that Windows 11 features multiple layers of application security to safeguard “critical data and code integrity.”
Microsoft Said :
The integrated security also protects Windows 11 against breaches and malware while keeping user data private and hence, safe.
This integrate security also lets IT administrators have more control over multiple machines.
Support for Passwordless Authentication
Windows 11 also goes with Microsoft’s vision of a passwordless future.
Eliminating the need for passwords while logging into Windows 11 and perhaps other subsequent security layers, and instead is providing alternate authentication methods that cannot be replicated ensures that users and their data are safer.
Connecting to Cloud Services
Microsoft Said :
Microsoft also offers cloud services for “identity, storage, and access management” in addition to other tools.
Microsoft also states that users can enforce their own compliance and conditional access via modern device management (MDM) services like Microsoft Intune that works with the company’s Azure Active Directory to control access to applications and data through the cloud.
