Windows 10 is the best combination of the Windows you already know; plus, lots of great improvements you’ll love having. Technologies like InstantGo, which lets you boot up and resume quickly. Everything runs fast and smooth. And Windows 10 devices now have Battery Saver to automatically conserve power—so you can work longer and play harder. For total confidence, Windows 10 helps you stay up to date on the latest and greatest features and has more built-in security protections than ever to help keep your system safe.

Manage your Technology with Ease

Managing technology can be less intrusive and demanding than you may think. Windows 10 now offers you the ability to manage your IT with a light touch – you don’t need heavy on-premises enterprise solutions. New cloud-based management tools mean your infrastructure is all virtual and can scale up or down with your business needs. When you spend less time managing your technology, you can spend more time running your business.

5Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Use a single MDM solution to manage all your devices – PCs, tablets, and phones. You can even use Office 365 to lightly manage your devices or other industry-standard MDM solutions.

6Azure AD (Active Directory) Join

You can now manage your user logins without an on-premises server. Azure AD join lets you use cloud services to provide a unified identity to login to all your Windows devices, OneDrive, the Windows Store, and Office 365.

7Windows Update for Business

Reduce management costs while giving you more control of your system updates and quicker access to security updates. Your business will always have the latest solutions from Microsoft.

Windows as a Service

Microsoft is introducing a new approach in Windows 10 that balances the needs for agility and control. You can more quickly take advantage of feature innovation after updates have been assessed in the consumer market. You do that by putting the profiled machines of your choice on the new Current Branch for Business (CBB) update schedule. With this option, your IT staff has several months to validate updates in your environment, starting on the day changes are shipped broadly to consumers and Windows Insiders. By the time CBB machines are updated, millions of Windows Insiders, consumers, and your own internal test processes will have validated the changes for several months, allowing updates to be deployed with increased assurance. Microsoft is also introducing a new option to manage these updates with Windows Update for Business. Designed for enduser devices within businesses, Windows Update for Business will provide:

12Deployment Flexibility

Ability to create internal deployment groups, where the IT Pro can specify which devices go first in an update wave, and which ones will come later within your company’s environment. within your company’s environment.

13Control of Upgrades

Maintenance windows to align with business rhythm, where the IT Pro can specify the critical timeframes when updates should and should not occur.

14Bandwidth Saving

Peer to peer delivery, which IT can enable to make delivery of updates to branch offices and remote sites with limited bandwidth very efficient.

15Integration

Integration with your existing tools like System Center – so that these tools can continue to be that ‘single pane of glass’ for all of your systems management.

Compare Security

   

IDENTITY PROTECTION

• Today’s multi-factor solutions are often cumbersome and costly to deploy.
• Phishing attacks on your users’ passwords are increasingly successful.
• Pass the Hash attacks enable attackers to steal identities, traverse across networks, and evade detection.
• Microsoft Passport is an easy-to-use and easy-to-deploy, multi-factor, password alternative.
• Windows Hello uses biometrics to provide a more secure way of accessing your device, Microsoft Passport, apps, data, and online resources.
• Microsoft Azure Active Directory provides a comprehensive identity and access management solution for the cloud.

DATA PROTECTION

• BitLocker offers optionally configurable disk encryption.
• Data loss prevention (DLP) requires the use of additional software and frequently third-party capability.
• DLP solutions often compromise the user experience in the interest of security, resulting in low adoption and varying experience between the desktop and mobile devices.
• BitLocker is much improved, is highly manageable, and can be automatically provisioned on most new devices.
• Enterprise Data Protection addresses the needs for DLP, includes a deeply integrated data separation and containerization solution, and provides encryption at the file level.
• Enterprise Data Protection provide seamless user experience across mobile devices and the desktop, and is integrated with Azure Active Directory and Rights Management Services.

THREAT RESISTANCE

• All apps are trusted until they’re determined to be a threat or are explicitly blocked.
• With more than 300,000 new threats per day, blocking them through detection (block on known bad) is a losing battle.
• Windows provides a series of defense solutions, but too many malware threats impact users before detection-based antivirus solutions can catch up.
• Platform security is based entirely on what software can do on its own, and once infected there is no assurance that system defenses can perform their function and remain tamper free.
• Malware can hide within the hardware or in the operating system itself, and there is no way to validate integrity once it has been compromised.
• Device Guard offers protection on the desktop that is similar to lockdown on a mobile platform (full app lockdown).
• With Device Guard, an application must prove itself to be trustworthy before it can be run.
• Device Guard will be the most disruptive malware-resistance capability Microsoft has ever shipped in the desktop.
• Hardware-based security and the level of trust it offers helps to maintain and validate hardware and system integrity.
• UEFI Secure Boot helps prevent malware from embedding itself within hardware or starting before the OS. Trusted Boot helps maintain the integrity of the rest of the OS.
