Endpoint Manager new profiles are optimized for security and usability. The profiles are based on three levels of security as follows:

  • ‘Windows - Security Level 1 Profile’ (replaces 'Optimum Windows Profile’)

  • ‘Windows - Security Level 1 Profile [Former Standard Profile]’ (replaces ‘Standard Windows’ profile)

  • ‘Windows - Security Level 2 Profile' (replaces ‘Hardened Windows Profile’)

  • ‘Windows - Security Level 3 Profile’ (new profile - max. security)
