Microsoft Windows 10 Security Enhancements

Microsoft has officially introduced
Windows 10, the primary target of Windows 10 is seems to be
enterprise customer because Microsoft focusing on their needs and
requirements. In the official blog while introducing Windows 10
business, Microsoft has discussed some of its primary features:

Windows 10 designed with enterprise customers in

Windows 10 will be our greatest platform ever for organizations
and their employees. There are several reasons that business
customers in particular should take notice of Windows 10. It’s not
just more familiar from a user experience
standpoint. We have built so much of what businesses need right into
the core of this product – including enterprise-grade security,
identity and information protection
features, reducing
complexity and providing a better experience for the modern needs of
business. We’ve simplified management and deployment
to help lower costs, including in-place upgrades from Windows 7 or 8
that are focused on making device wipe-and-reload scenarios obsolete.
We’re also providing businesses with more choice
in how quickly they adopt the latest innovations, and are delivering
continued improvements based on customer feedback.

Helping protect against modern security

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 identities for
accessing devices, apps and sites that improve resistance to breach,
theft or phishing. This approach is important because it takes the
concept of multi-factor solutions such as smartcards or token-based
system and builds it right into the operating system, in turn also
eliminating the need for extra security hardware peripherals. 
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. Whether the data moves from a
tablet or PC to a USB drive, email or the cloud – it maintains the
same level of protection. This solution will stand out because of its
ease of use and ability to help protect data right at the file level.
Users won’t need to change behavior, use special apps, or move to a
separate, locked-down environment to keep corporate data secure. 
With the increasingly more mobile
workforce, secure access to network resources is an important
priority for every organization. People need to connect to critical
data and apps, from anywhere and across multiple devices in order to
stay productive. Windows 10 provides organizations with tools to
deliver more secure and more controlled VPN access.
