The combination of HP’s Most Secure PCs with Windows 10 Secured-core helps protect the boot process and core operating system from attacks with security capabilities built.

Secured-core PCs

Secured-core PCs from HP enable built-in Virtualization-based security (VBS) in Windows 10 Pro to create a secure, hardware-isolated environment that effectively isolates memory and critical components that prevents attacks and unauthorized access to critical parts of the operating system to protect the OS against theft of credentials (Windows Credential Guard)4.

Hypervisor code integrity (HVCI) protects Windows 10 Pro by preventing malware modifications of critical operating system code in Secured-core PCs.

Built on top of HP’s industry leading Sure Start5 technology, Secure Launch in HP Secured-core PCs uses a hardware root of trust ensuring secure start of the OS beginning the moment the CPU starts execution to when control is securely transferred to the Windows hypervisor loader.
