Device Guard in Windows 10 keeps malware away

  1. I hope that this is a feature that can be disabled. I have an issue with MS dictating which apps I can run.

  2. Device Guard is a good idea if implemented properly. But I believe it will only benifit large companies.

    This will mean that perfectly legitimate and excelent software that has not been certified by MS will not run. Will the maker of the software have to pay MS before they can get their software certified? I think they will. There are small companies and individuals who produce really great programs and who will not/can not afford these costs. I believe that this is just another money making excersise by MS. I also think that this could be a way MS is trying to put folks of trying to install other OS’s as it will be to difficult for most PC users

  3. The firmware would be from Microsoft so obviously, it would be Microsoft that gets to decide. Probably, we can add more trusted certificates to the certificate managers so that we can run the programs we want.

  4. New computers will have this option as a firmware. OS will, at most, allow some customization such as whitelisting programs. That’s my conclusion based on what I’ve read.

  5. It will be Microsoft. But since we can add trusted certificates, we’ll be able to use other programs – provided they have proper certificates. There will be some customization options in the operating system but basically, the thing is a hardware program so choices will be limited.

  6. “There are small companies and individuals who produce really great programs and who will not/can not afford these costs”.

    I will have to agree with that. Even after whitelisting, the programs will need proper certificates to be executed. Process of getting certified is costly even if the certification authority is someone other than Microsoft. Let’s see what Microsoft does on this issue.

    customization such as whitelisting of programs, I guess…

  8. kik messenger doesnt even allows you to register an account, its a certified app… microsoft can’t take care of every individual line of code made by other entities, and automatizating this process (like compilers do) doesnt means anything at all…

    I do really trust microsoft, i dont think they care a lot about what i do… but… i dont trust the others microsoft do trust…

    Do you?

  9. Window 10 IS malware by definition. The fact that all of these pseudo
    bloggers are posting the same exact buzzwords means microsoft got caught
    astroturfing again.
