Multi-layered security system
In today’s world, cybersecurity and security offerings are growing day by day, and high security is a very important and vital priority for businesses. Windows Server 2022 is equipped with new security technologies such as secure server and secure connectivity, which can be effective in warding off security issues and cyber threats.
Secure server is a set of multi-layered security features present in all parts of a server i.e. hardware, firmware and operating system. This system uses TPM 2 (Trusted Platform Module 2.0) and System Guard security chip to safely launch and boot the operating system and minimize the risk of firmware weakness. The secure server also uses virtualization or VBS based security features such as Credential Guard and HVCI. Credential Guard takes a series of proactive security measures to protect sensitive information such as credentials. HVCI is also a hardware security feature that can protect your system against advanced and specific malware.
Secure Connectivity is an advanced security layer that protects the system during data transfer and exchange. Windows Server 2022 uses faster and more advanced versions of the HTTPS protocol, which guarantees a secure connection. Transport Layer Security Protocol or TLS is also enabled by default in this Windows.
