TPM 2.0 Requirement Makes Security Easier

Bobby Guerra, CEO of Jacksonville, Fla.-based Microsoft partner Axiom, told CRN in an interview that one of the features he likes most for SMBs using Windows 11 is mandating disk encryption.

A recent study from Belgium-based IT asset management services provider Lansweeper showed that almost half of workstations won’t upgrade to Windows 11 automatically due to not meeting the TPM 2.0 security chip requirement or not having it enabled.

“A lot of businesses underestimate the importance of that, especially from a compliance perspective,” Guerra said. “It‘s just really nice knowing that that’s going to be a requirement now because it’s a crapshoot on a (Windows) 10 (device) whether the client has encryption on, whether they have the capability of even doing encryption. So the fact that they’re drawing the sand, the line in the sand is greatly appreciated.”

Along with the much-discussed requirement for a TPM 2.0 security chip, Windows 11 also requires a CPU released in the past four years.
