Microsoft Windows 8 is available today with some exciting new features for business users. The Windows blog outlines all the new features of the 3 basic Windows versions with a list of additional features for Windows 8 Enterprise.
In response to the changing face of business, Windows 8 Enterprise supports BYOD with Windows to Go, a fully manageable corporate Windows 8 desktop on a bootable external USB that will allow employees more secure access to the corporate environment. In addition to this, DirectAccess allows outside access to the network without a separate VPN, AppLocker can restrict the use of apps and files and much more. We are glad to see the improvements made to Windows 8 to support a more secure corporate environment.
