Key Benefits for Your Business

Protection against modern security threats

Security risks for Enterprise are growing in importance. Windows 10 offers completely new methods for the protection of your systems and data. It has been developed to protect data, devices and identities of the biggest and most demanding companies and governments throughout the world. Your company can also profit from this high degree of security. Features like Windows Hello and Microsoft Passport simplify the introduction of biometric and multifactor authentication. Say goodbye to passwords thanks to these user-friendly authentication methods.

Windows 10 also has an integrated defense mechanism for protecting critical company data against indiscretion and theft and separates business data from personal. Technologies such as Secure Boot and Device Guard ensure you are protected right from switching on your device until switching it off again.

Managed for continuous innovation

Windows 10 helps you focus less on deployment and device management, and more on innovation, and driving value for your business.

By putting devices on the current branch for Business, enterprises will be able to receive feature updates after their quality and application compatibility has been assessed in the consumer market, while continuing to receive security updates on a regular basis.

Maximum flexibility for maximum performance

Windows 10 offers a familiar user interface for productive work on a PC, tablet or smartphone. Thanks to the welcome parallels to Windows 7, among which is the start menu on the desktop, you will feel like an expert in no time. New features like Continuum and Microsoft Edge offer new, innovative productivity experiences which are unique to Windows 10. 2-in-1 devices give you the choice between desktop and tablet mode which can be used interchangeably by switching between keyboard and touch. With Continuum for Phone, you can even make your smartphone work just like a desktop.

New Features

Windows 10 Universal apps let you write once and deploy across all devices, creating one app that tailors to any device.

The Windows Store for Business is a flexible way for your organization to find and use new apps – both public and line of business. It can also manage licenses and integrate with your system’s management solutions.

Provides the complete installation, all applications and the 32-bit desktop of a user on a USB drive. The drive can be used on any USB-bootable PC and provides a second security layer as the user is not able to access the local host drives.

Windows Update, SCCM or Windows Intune (for Applications).

Speech-activated assistant which simplifies many tasks and keeps you up-to-date about the most important things.

Interesting for BYOD (Bring your own device) users as it enables the separation of private and business interfaces.

Choose either to encrypt all external connections via VPN or limit it to special, relevant applications for your employees’ mobile access to your company’s applications.

Multi-factor authentication is an additional security layer which is standard with Windows 10. Instead of signing on with user name and password, in certain scenarios, the user can be asked for a PIN which he will receive via text or call.
