Secure Windows 365 with Built-In Security Capabilities
Shortly after Microsoft released its Windows 365 Cloud PC solution earlier this month, cybersecurity vulnerabilities were uncovered by security researchers. These vulnerabilities were exposing customers’ networks to attacks. This week, Microsoft has shared guidance on securing Windows 365 Cloud PCs through built-in security capabilities.
The guidance is broken down for those enrolled in 365 Business and Windows 365 Enterprise plans. For small businesses using Windows 365 Business, end-users already are automatically granted local admin rights. Also, IT admins are advised to follow standard IT security practices to set each user as a standard user of their devices using Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
For IT Managers working with Windows 365 Enterprise Cloud PCs, have it easier since users are enrolled in Microsoft Endpoint Manager out of the box. This solution also comes with reporting of Microsoft Defender Antivirus alerts and optional onboarding into Microsoft Defender for Endpoint capabilities.
End-users of Windows 365 Enterprise PCs are also automatically set up as standard users by default, with admins being provided with the ability to make per-user exceptions if necessary.
