Surface tools that assist IT admins with core security, management, and diagnostic tasks are now updated with support for the latest enterprise devices. These IT tools include: 

  • Surface Enterprise Management Mode. Allows you to secure and manage firmware settings within your organization. Notably, customers can now use Surface Enterprise Management Mode to enable and disable hardware components and UEFI in Surface Laptop 4 along with support for simultaneous multithreading and improved MSI signing across all devices.

  • Surface Diagnostic Tool for Business. Eases the support experience through Surface Diagnostics. Provides a full suite of diagnostic tests and software repairs to quickly investigate, troubleshoot, and resolve hardware, software, and firmware issues with Surface devices. This latest update lets you quickly determine if the SSD was replaced from the original inbox SSD.

  • Surface Data Eraser. With the all new and improved Surface Data Eraser, we reengineered how the tool works to provide a seamless experience to help you secure your devices through erasure.

  • Surface Deployment Accelerator. Support for building your own Surface images for Surface Laptop 4 will be available soon.
