Microsoft releases Windows 10 Anniversary Update to Current Branch for Business

November 29, 2016


It’s been almost 5 months since Microsoft released the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to consumers. Today, the company is releasing the Anniversary Update to the Current Branch for Business (CBB). In a blog post, Microsoft’s Michael Neihaus stated that the company has addressed nearly thousand issues reported by users, which is pretty huge. The software giant is releasing Windows 10 Build 14393.447 to CBB, and users in the CBB can now install the update on their machines.

Windows 10 Anniversary Update brings a number of new features and enhancements for businesses, including some new security features such as Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (WDATP). WDATP allows businesses to identify and respond to advanced attacks on their network. The update brings several other improvements to the operating system, including improved information protection, identity protection, and much more. Of course, the update includes the usual consumer-focused features, such as support for extensions in Microsoft Edge, Universal Windows Platform improvements, Windows Hello integration in third-party apps, improvements to the Start Screen and Cortana, Linux subsystem on Windows, and a lot more. Once again, these are mostly consumer-focused, so businesses likely won’t be using any of the features at the moment.

Users in the Current Branch for Business should be able to get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update right now, and it’ll be coming to the Long Term Servicing Branch in the near-future.
