TPM is a security technology that increases the computer security against software vulnerabilities.
Practically, the TPM is used for multiple features that increase the security of your device:
- BitLocker Drive Encryption: Automatically encrypts the computer drive to keep your data safe.
- Data Execution Prevention: Prevents unauthorized applications like malware from running in memory.
- Windows Hello: Secure user authentication without a password.
- Secure Boot and Measured Boot: Block malicious drivers and rootkits from intercepting the boot process of the Operating System.
