Are Z170 WS or Z170 Deluxe or Z170 Premium Intel SGX ready?

Motherboard manufacturers added Intel Software Guard Extensions option into BIOS only recently. It is never present in the initial BIOS release. Thus it is not easy to tell whether a mobo supports it or not unless you actually own the board with latest BIOS installed.

ASUS Z170 Deluxe
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z170-DELUXE
ASUS Z170 Premium
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z170-PREMIUM

Are here any owners of Z170 WS or Z170 Deluxe or Z170 Premium? Can you confirm whether the latest BIOS 3401* offers Software Guard Extensions (SGX) Enable/Disable option or not? It should be under Advanced tab probably.
I asked the official tech support, of course, but I received no answer...

Thank you for the first answer.
ASUS Z170 Premium is SGX compatible. How about the other two?

OK, both Deluxe and Premium are confirmed. Any owner of Z170 WS, please? I know, it is a workstation model, not a typical ROG gaming board.
