Announcements, announcements, announcements. There seems to be no stopping Microsoft with their latest press releases about what they have in store for the coming months.
Microsoft have announced that Windows 10 for enterprises will start being rolled out at the beginning of October,
Subscribers of Windows “Insider Program” will be the first to try out the new features, whilst a date for a full release is yet unannounced, it is expected to be available before the end of the year.
New features available in Windows 10 for enterprises will include:
Windows Passport/Microsoft Hello – In technical jargon this is known as “biometric authentication”, in simple terms what Microsoft are offering is the ability to use face, eye and fingerprint recognition to gain access to your files. Given you have Intel’s RealSense 3D Camera (F200) or a similar device, facial recognition should be available.
Enterprise Data Protection – EDP provides additional protection against enterprise data leakage, it separates personal and corporate date without having to switch between business or employee environment or app. In short, it provides a lot more protection for corporate and personal data.
Windows Store for Business – This new feature goes with Microsoft’s vision for a unified app store available across all platforms and including both company owned apps and those from the Windows store.
Another announcement interesting announcement was Microsoft’s new partnership with Dell.
In what is being called their “Surface Enterprise Initiative” Microsoft will be pairing their Surface Pro devices with enterprise services through new partnerships.
After recently passing the 75 million downloads mark, Windows 10 will no doubt get a significant push from when Dell begin selling the Surface Pro Tablet in American and Canada, a worldwide release through dell is expected in early 2016.
