Device Guard and Developers
When device guard notifies you of a possibly malicious app download, does it allow the user to then download it or is it indefinitely blocked? And what does this mean for third party developers that are not part of those major organizations listed in the article? What process do they have to go through now to get their apps accepted? Or do they not have that option?

Re: Device Guard and Developers
Those are certainly valid concerns but I would say that they're focused around a small demographic.  In an enterprise environment this capability will be useful as it allows for granular control and a better protection posture.  For the average home user who doesn't understand the cert warning it provides additional protection as well.

I would suspect that the end user that is going to leverage a legit third party app that wasn't signed probably shouldn't be using that app.  For the savvy user they'll most likely disable the protection. To your point (question) about a processes to get apps accepted that's certainly a critical need because if they don't address that then the capability will most likely just get disabled ala UAC.

That is just a myth. Biometric technologies require blood flow through the bodypart being scanned in order to function. Once that person is gone, that information is lost forever.
