Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is the next generation interface between the operating systems and the platform firmware. UEFI replaces the legacy Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) firmware that has been around since the start of personal computers. Although UEFI has been around for years, manufacturers provide support for legacy BIOS by means of Compatibility Support Module (CSM) allowing support for booting from MBR-partitioned disks. Downside is; it is vulnerable to root kits and intelligent malware. In this session, you’ll learn the differences of BIOS and UEFI, the benefits of UEFI, and Windows 10 security benefits available when running UEFI, as well as how to use Configuration Manager to inventory systems running UEFI.
