This policy setting specifies the text displayed in the title bar of the window that users see when they log on to the system. Configure this setting in a manner that is consistent with the security and operational requirements of your organization.


Displaying a warning message before logon may help prevent an attack by warning the attacker about the consequences of their misconduct before it happens. It may also help to reinforce corporate policy by notifying employees of the appropriate policy during the logon process.


Users will have to acknowledge a dialog box with the configured title before they can log on to the computer.


To establish the recommended configuration, set the following Device Configuration Policy to as prescribed:
