Microsoft forgot to renew the certificate for its Windows Insider subdomain over the weekend, causing an outage and disruption for those trying to use the platform. Users who attempted to visit the Windows Insider portal were met with a warning about how their connection wasn’t private.

Despite the site only being down for a few hours, this typifies why large enterprises need to prioritise machine identity management, as without it we’ll continue to see outages impact users.
