The last couple of years have produced the fastest digital transformation the world has ever seen. In light of the pandemic, organizations around the world have had to adapt to the environment and quickly adopt new technologies. With workers being forced to work from home, many employees were forced to work from their personal laptops. Due to the chip shortages, many employees who were able to take their work devices with them have been relegated to using outdated devices. Overnight, IT and Security teams lost their ability to protect their company's endpoints. The Manufacturing industry, known for its heavy reliance on frontline workers, was hit particularly hard. Many of these individuals were not given devices for work.
In light of these circumstances, Manufacturing companies have been tasked with providing secure devices to their users. Microsoft Surface devices are able to meet this demand.
Microsoft’s mission is simple, yet remarkable: To empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
People and organizations can only experience this form of empowerment when their data and systems are secure. Therefore, our CEO, Satya Nadella, is steadfast in Microsoft’s commitment to security, as he has often stated that “security is our top priority, and we are committed to working with others across the industry to protect our customers.”
This responsibility falls on IT departments, who must embrace a holistic strategy for modern security which can adapt to the complexity of today’s business environment.
Microsoft has taken several steps to assist IT organizations in this endeavor. Our Microsoft security research teams have analyzed cyber-attacks across thousands of organizations and have worked closely with other industry experts in order to develop the Microsoft Zero Trust framework.

Every feature of our Microsoft Surface devices has been designed in alignment with Microsoft’s Zero Trust architectural principles. The Microsoft Surface devices are Chip-to-Cloud Secure. We have specifically built-in advanced security at every layer: the hardware, the firmware, the operating system, and in the cloud.
Part one of this two part series will deep dive the hardware and firmware security features built into our Microsoft Surface Devices.
When it comes to endpoint security, Microsoft Surfaces devices reign supreme. These devices benefit from one simple fact. Every line of code in the hardware, the firmware, the operating system, and the cloud is owned and developed by Microsoft. Our engineers control 100% of the code that will run on Surface devices. This uniquely positions Microsoft to design an unparalleled, holistic approach to endpoint security.
Stay tuned for part two of this series on the security of Microsoft Surface devices. The next blog post will deep dive into several security features in the operating system and in the cloud.
