AWS announces Credential Guard support for Windows instances on Amazon EC2

Amazon Web Services(AWS) today announced support for Credential Guard, a Windows Virtualization Based Security (VBS) feature.

When Credential Guard is turned on, login credentials cannot be used from another host or after a user has logged out.
