The benefits of Windows 10


Intelligent Security

Intelligent security capabilities protect against targeted threats and compromised identities. Windows 10 brings together Endpoint Protection and Endpoint Detection and Response to protect end user devices from these malicious threats. You can now integrate the O365 security stack with Windows 10. Roll out Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection and Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics to protect user identities and devices.


Integrated for simplicity

Windows 10 introduces a simplified deployment process. Utilize the cloud to deploy, manage and update devices in just a few clicks from any device using Modern Desktop Deployment Tools. Endpoint Analytics provides insight into the health of your device environment, keeping you compliant and experiencing seamless upgrades.


Creativity and teamwork

Boost your employee’s productivity and teamwork with Windows 10. Integrate Office 365 applications and services with Windows 10 to enhance user collaboration and communication. Introducing the ability to sync users work across multiple devices, keeping your users organized and increasing overall work efficiency.


Windows 10 Autopilot

Utilize Windows 10 alongside Intune & Azure Active Directory P1 to benefit from modern endpoint deployment. Autopilot leverages cloud service technology to set-up and preconfigure new devices.

Delivering a Modern Workplace with Windows 10

The Microsoft Endpoint Manager suite is a combination of Microsoft products which include Intune, Configuration Manager and Endpoint Analytics.

This suite of software gives IT admins on-premises and cloud management tools with the ability to provision, deploy, manage and secure endpoints.

It is highly recommended for customers with existing Configuration Manager installation to utilise all Microsoft cloud services through co-management or tenant attach to have the richest and most comprehensive feature set when it comes to management of their endpoint devices.

Endpoint Manager can combine mobile device management (MDM) capabilities with mobile application management (MAM) and can manage hardware running other operating systems such as iOS and Android.

Endpoint Manager is designed to leverage on M365 security features such as Conditional Access and Application Protection Policies to manage a variety of devices in a way that protects corporate data while still allowing employees to do their jobs using both corporate and personal devices.
