Announcing the GA of Screen Capture Information for AVD

At the peak of COVID-19 lockdowns, more than 85% of connections to Azure Virtual Desktop were coming from users working from home. More than half of those users are sitting in front of devices not managed by corporate IT. Lack of IT control and oversight over the client devices make Screen Capture Protection one of the top feature requests from our customers.

Just in the preview, we had more than 300 customers using the feature to protect the content accessed by almost 10k users. We expect a significant number of customers will start using this feature shortly.


As always, new AVD features are provided to customers at no additional cost, making this a deal-breaker compared to third-party solutions that have an additional charge for similar functionality.


Please read and share the announcement on Tech Community, and refer customers to the documentation.
