Windows Server 2022 is the latest version of Microsoft’s Windows Server operating system, which has already been released as a preview. This version of Windows is released in the form of the LTSC version or Microsoft support and long-term service channel. This window was first introduced in March 2021 and according to the development team, the final version will be released in late 2021.
Windows Server 2022 is based on the software core of Windows Server 2019. Windows Server 2019 is one of the most successful Microsoft projects in recent years, which has a higher speed and performance than previous versions. Among the most important features of the new version is the multi-layer security system, full compatibility with the Azure cloud computing system, and flexible platform.
Multilayer security system
In today’s world, cyber and security threats are spreading day by day and high security is a very important and vital priority for companies. Windows Server 2022 is equipped with new security technologies such as secured-core servers and secure connectivity, which can be effective in eliminating security issues and cyber threats.
A secured-core server is a set of multi-layered security capabilities that are present across parts of a server, namely hardware, firmware, and operating system. The system uses the TPM 2 security chip (Trusted Platform Module 2.0) and System Guard to boot and boot the operating system safely and minimize the risks of firmware vulnerabilities. The secured-core server also uses VBS-based security features such as Credential Guard and HVCI.
Credential Guard takes a series of precautionary security measures to protect sensitive information such as credentials. HVCI is also a hardware-based security feature that can protect your system against advanced and specific malware.
Secured connectivity is an advanced security layer that protects the system during data transfer. Windows Server 2022 uses faster and more advanced versions of the HTTPS protocol, which ensures a secure connection. Transfer layer security protocol or TLS is also enabled by default in this Windows.
Features of Windows Server 2022:
- Multilayer security system
- Secured-core server capability support
- Use TPM 2.0 and System Guard to boot Windows safely
