Windows 10 – The final Windows installment

The ability to provide a unified and secure Windows-based experience across a range of devices is a major challenge for organisations, especially if they are still tied to legacy operating systems such as XP, Vista and Windows 7.

 

Why Windows 10?

Windows 10 is a fully featured, modern operating system that has security and mobility at its core and brings streamlined imaging and management capabilities to IT administrators.

With an enormous amount of time, resources and money often wasted keeping aging, end user platforms working and with older operating systems rapidly moving out of mainstream and extended support, the need to deliver stable, fast, well-supported platforms to end users is greater than ever. Windows 10 Enterprise provides IT professionals with advanced protection against modern security threats and comprehensive management tools and control over devices and applications. This is combined with modern features and functionality that provide for flexible deployment, updates and support.

As a Microsoft Gold Partner, with years of Windows operating systems experience, Venture 1 can analyse your current end user computing environment, report on the findings and recommend a structured course of action, designed to help you move away from legacy operating systems and adopt Windows 10 Enterprise throughout your organisation.

With Windows XP now end-of-life, Windows 7 out of mainstream support and due to go end of support in January 2020, the time is right to consider moving to Windows 10 and benefit from this ‘Operating System as a Service’ model.

Windows 10 is the end of Microsoft’s platform convergence journey, with the operating system running on a single unified core allowing universal applications to run securely across any compatible device. Organisations can benefit from a single management and security model, saving costs and reducing complexity.

 

A range of enhanced security features is also included in Windows 10 – some of these are:-

  • Windows Defender – Built-in to Windows 10, Windows Defender automatically scans programs users open, downloads new definitions from Windows Update and provides an interface that can be used for in-depth malware scans.
  • Windows Information Protection (WIP) – Uses the Encrypted File System (EFS) to protect data and is retained across devices. Together with Azure Information Protection, this can also be extended into the Office 365 cloud.
  • Advanced Threat Protection – Uses a combination of behavioural markers, cloud security analytics and threat intelligence to enable enterprise customers to detect, investigate and respond to advanced security threats.
  • BitLocker – Is a data protection feature that integrates with the operating system and addresses the threat of data theft from lost, stolen or incorrectly decommissioned devices.

Through a series of workshops designed to reduce the risks associated with adoption and get you on-board quicker, engaging with Venture 1 will help your organisation adapt to how Windows 10 is delivered, developed and managed across the enterprise.
