Windows 10 Enterprise is designed for your business’ success. It’s business-focused features and powerful business tools make it ideal for deployment in your business. Deployment features in Windows 10 Enterprise include:
Sideloading is a feature that enables certain Windows Store applications to be quickly and efficiently installed on Windows machines.
Mobile Device Management
This feature allows your phones, tablets, and other devices running Windows 10 to be centrally by IT. Windows 10 machines can now connect to a Mobile Device Management (MDM) server that will enroll and configure the devices and can apply updates and enforce the in-house policies governing usage.
Azure Active Directory Features
Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft's multi-tenant, cloud-based directory and identity management service providing single sign-on access to thousands of SaaS applications like Office365, Salesforce.com, DropBox, and Concur. Microsoft integrates Azure AD with Windows to reduce the number of passwords users will need to remember. By linking Windows 10 devices to Azure AD, users can sign into Windows using their Azure AD account and password. The same devices can be automatically enrolled in a mobile device management service simultaneously.
Granular UX Control
Granular UX Control allows IT managers to lock down the user interface of a Windows device and restrict the machine to performing a specific task.
Enterprise Mode Internet Explorer
Some older intranet sites can’t properly render or act the way they should in newer browsers. Internet Explorer (IE) 11, which ships with Windows 10, has Enterprise mode to act more like an IE8 experience. This allows newer browser features that could cause errors to be disabled. It provides tools for management and monitoring of compatibility.
Device Encryption is enabled so all drives are encrypted and can only be unlocked by someone with the account password. Device Encryption uses BitLocker and 128-bit AES symmetric encryption, and it supports a recovery mechanism that allows recovery key to be stored in Active Directory Domain Services.
Group Policy Management
Windows 10 physical and virtual machines and devices can be managed using Group Policy settings. This lets IT configure user computers company-wide.
Other Windows 10 features
The Start Button
Perhaps the most obvious and most appreciated feature found in Windows 10 is the return of the Start menu. After the controversial decision to remove the menu from Windows 8, Microsoft has had second thoughts and brought the feature back. Upon opening the menu neatly located in the bottom left of your screen, you have the option to do basic tasks such as quickly start any of your installed applications, open your settings for Windows, or to shut down and restart your device or sign out of your user. More than that, it has incorporated Metro tiles into the Start menu, so that users get the best of the classic design and the Metro design.
Most users these days don’t do all their computing on a single device. They have a phone, a tablet, and a desktop or laptop. The convenience of these devices is limited when the apps used on each platform don’t match up properly. Windows 10 solves this problem by using universal apps on all platforms that behave the exact same, providing the same experience no matter how they are accessed.
Incredible new navigation tools are at your fingertips with Cortana. For Windows users who have grown jealous of Apple user’s reliance on Siri or Amazon user’s connection to Alexa, they can now brag about just how well-integrated Cortana is to Windows 10 Home. Simply speak a command, and Cortana will run the right programs or do the right searches. It’s hands-free and easy to use.
Just as most users work on different devices, modern computer capabilities make it easier to work from multiple windows for vast multitasking. The problem is finding the window you need quickly and having access to multiple windows when you need them. The new task view allows users to find the windows they need and then set them up in quadrants that take up part of the screen so multiple windows are right in front of you at all times.
Switching between a touch-based device and one that doesn't have touchscreen support has previously been a bit of a hassle with different operating systems. Windows 10 Home solves the problem with Continuum, which automatically finds out the touch capabilities of a device and adjusts the system accordingly, sparing you the time and stress it could possibly take to change settings manually.
