Can I install Anti Virus Software on My Microsoft Teams Room

Occasional Visitor

Can I install Anti-Virus software on my Teams Room device? or would it break it? I am putting it in a separate VLAN and changing the default admin password. I am also thinking of installing antivirus software. Would this cause problem? What other security recommendations can I put in place?

Hello, You can find some guidance here

"Even though end users can't put files on a Teams Rooms hard drive, Microsoft Defender is still enabled. Teams Rooms performance is tested with Microsoft Defender. Disabling this or adding endpoint security software can lead to unpredictable results and potential system degradation."
It is already installed. It is also already hardened. It is not "just Windows" on a Teams Room Device.
Treat it as you would a thermostat or a printer.
