If you run multiple windows systems, you should not -- definitely. GPOs are really handy to enforce security policies on Windows systems. E.g. I am using GPO to enforce
- Screen saver lock with passwords (physical systems only)
- SMB3 (encryption)
- Enforcing DNS lookups rather than NETBIOS lookups
- Bitlocker keys in AD
- Enabling winrm
- Event subscriptions for my backup solution (backup servers only)
- Disable OneDrive and Cortana
Obviously your choice may vary, but applying policies consistently without GPOs is just tedious.
I´d be interested what other policies others are using…
