Hi Kiaan,

I will always recommend to use a third party certificate. Third party certificate are more secure, all machines will trust without needing to apply rules, gpo... more secure. They are are "universally" accepted. Internal certificate or self-signed certificate are created by their own Root CA but it will not be trusted.
