To help IT professionals everywhere, we have added new capabilities to our free Windows Analytics service1 to report the status for all the Windows devices2 that they manage. These new capabilities include:
Firmware Status – This insight provides details about the firmware installed on the device. Specifically, this insight reports if the installed firmware indicates that it includes the specific protections required. Initially, this status will be limited to the list of approved and available firmware security updates from Intel4. We will be adding other CPU (chipset) partners’ data as it becomes available to Microsoft.
