As of Windows 11, version 21H2, Microsoft introduced the Azure Code Signing requirement for all Antivirus and Anti-Malware Protection vendors.

Azure Code Signing ensures that your Windows workload is secure and compliant by establishing the identity of the application publisher. It also verifies application integrity, ensuring it has not been modified since publication.

Note: You can learn more about Azure Code Signing by visiting the Microsoft Knowledge Base article on the subject.


We strongly recommended that all Windows workloads install the latest Windows security update to stay compliant with Azure Code Signing requirements.

If you are unable to install the latest Windows security update, you can continue to use Antivirus and Anti-Malware Protection, since it automatically remains compliant.
