Top 6 Security Considerations in Migrating to Microsoft Windows 10

By: Arieanna Schweber | 8/10/2015

The release of a new Microsoft operating system is always an important event for IT departments, and Windows 10 is no exception. While there are many new features to look forward to, the adoption of a new operating system can also be a period of increased security vulnerability - particularly if the IT department doesn't have the tools, technologies and processes to have comprehensive visibility and control over their endpoints. For IT, one of the top priorities must be ensuring that existing devices are secure and remain secure during and after the transition from one OS version to another.

In our new whitepaper, Top 6 Security Considerations in Migrating to Microsoft Windows 10, we examine six of the most important IT security considerations in migrating to Windows 10, while describing how utilizing adaptive endpoint security solutions can help you address these challenges and deliver maximum security across all devices. These Top 6 Security Considerations are:

  1. Visibility
  2. Control
  3. Risk Reduction
  4. Compliance
  5. Complexity
  6. Consistency

The security concerns we talk about apply not just to Windows 10 but to all endpoints, whether they are PCs, laptops, tablets or smartphones. IT teams need not only visibility over all endpoints, but also the control and flexibility to quickly and easily take appropriate actions to mitigate security risks as they arise. To achieve this required level of security, organizations need a trusted connection to each device, regardless of its user, location or operating system version.

Persistent endpoint security in the form of Absolute Data & Device Security (DDS) enables these trusted connections through technology that is built into the core of each device. With Absolute DDS, organizations can not only ensure that new devices with Windows 10 are protected from the factory, but they can also leverage the same technology across all of their existing devices, including PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
