Surface UEFI 3.11.760.0 and the Remote Management Tools

with one comment

Back in March Microsoft has published a new UEFI version (3.11.760.0) for the Surface Pro 3 device. The latest update to the firmware and drivers includes some great remote management features to control the devices hardware. i.e. you can control if a user has access to the camera, Bluetooth stack, microSD reader and more. To configure this on a per devices basis would be challenging so they implemented a remote management feature as well. Just yesterday Microsoft published the tools to manage the UEFI. These are based on PowerShell.

If you want to learn more about the tools please check this TechNet article.
