One of the main focus for Microsoft with Windows 10 is satisfying enterprise users. Microsoft has built Windows 10 with nearly everything that businesses need right into the core of the product — including enterprise-grade security, identity and information protection features. One area of advancement is with user identities to improve resistance to breach, theft or phishing. Another area in which data loss prevention is improved by using containers and data separation at the application and file level, enabling protection that follows the data as it goes from a tablet or PC to a USB drive, email or the cloud.
Microsoft has also simplified management and deployment to help lower costs, including in-place upgrades from Windows 7 or Windows 8 that are focused on making device wipe-and-reload scenarios obsolete. Businesses will also have the flexibility to choose how quickly they adopt the latest innovations and influence continued improvements. In addition, organizations will be able to customize an app store specific to their needs and environment. The intent is an app store that will allow for volume app licensing, flexible distribution, and the ability for organizations to reclaim or reuse licenses when necessary.

One converged Windows platform
Windows 10 also delivers one universal app platform, one security model, and one deployment and management approach.
Designed for the way you live and work
There’s virtually no learning curve required with Windows 10. For mouse and keyboard users, the Windows 10 user experience begins at the familiar desktop.
Helping protect against modern security threats
Windows 10 also introduces a number of advancements in security and identity protection features that are easy to manage and don’t compromise the user experience. One such advancement is the work we have done to create user identitiesfor accessing devices, apps and sites that improve resistance to breach, theft or phishing. We’ve also made progress in helping companies protect their business data. While BitLocker helps protects data as it resides on a device, once the data leaves the device it’s no longer protected. With Windows 10 we are able to provide an additional layer of protection using containers and data separation at the application and file level – enabling protection that follows the data wherever it goes.
Managed for continuous innovation
As mentioned, with Windows 10, we are aiming to reduce the need for the time-consuming and costly wipe-and-reload approach to OS deployment.
Windows 10 helps keep customers secure and up to date
Windows 10 will be delivered in a way that gives more choice and flexibility to businesses. As a result, a business can pick the speed of innovation that is right for each group of its users, rather than apply a one size fits all solution.
Enabling management for every scenario
Windows has always offered device management capabilities that businesses need, leveraging the power of Active Directory and System Center to enable full control over Windows devices. With Windows 10, we will extend built-in mobile device management (MDM) capabilities to embrace new mobile-first, cloud-first scenarios and bring MDM capabilities to traditional laptops and desktops.
An app store that is open for business
Windows 10 will also include a single app store that’s truly open for business. We’re planning for the new, unified app store to allow for volume app purchases based on existing organizational identity, flexible distribution and the ability for organizations to reclaim or re-use licenses.
