Windows 10 security hardening

In our free webcast, we discuss Windows 10’s out-of-the-box security features that will harden your security and protect your endpoints.

Modern workplace environments are cyber attackers’ prime target, because of the broad attack surface that digitalization offers. Because of BYOD (bring your own device), growing shadow IT and your data and users constantly moving outside the perimeter of your organization – for both private and professional matters – new threats are introduced.

Hardening your endpoints (laptops, desktops,…) deserves your attention. Windows 10 Enterprise offers several security features which can be configured to harden your endpoints’ general security level, without additional license costs.

Today’s threats to endpoints

In today’s environment, criminals attack vulnerable PCs to gain access to data for ID theft, to install ransomware and to conduct business espionage. Regular hackers want to get their hands on anything and spread viruses. So any PC is game for intrusion and it is not intricate, attacking a PC only takes a few minutes. Rule number one in cyber defence: don’t make it too easy for attackers.
