Are you aware that Windows 7 is going end of service in Jan 2020? Now is the perfect time to transform your business into the office of the future. There are many reasons why Windows 10 makes sense for business users, not least the familiar interface and enhanced security, and also the fact that it gives users a unified experience across multiple devices.
Key benefits and advances over earlier versions include:
Some of Windows 10’s biggest improvements are in security and management. The operating system has enhanced protection for user identities and devices, Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) and multi-factor authentication, to name just a few. These enhanced security features are all delivered in real-time via Microsoft’s cloud, allowing you to keep your data, devices and users protected 24/7.
With your OS secure, it is imperative to ensure that your hardware maintains the safety. The new HP Elite PCs include specialised security hardware – such as the HP Endpoint Security Controller – which supports solutions such as HP Sure Start1, HP Sure Run2, and HP Sure Recover3. This creates a hardened root of trust and protects the security stance of your Windows 10 Pro device.
Windows 10’s ease of use is a productivity booster in its own right, but it has the added advantage of familiarity, meaning less user training. It also boasts seamless integration with third-party apps and of course Microsoft’s Office 365, while your team can share and edit documents in real-time using Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage. Windows 10 also makes it easier to switch devices and work on a mobile phone, tablet or PC – a particularly useful feature for users who are always on the go.
Flexible support and management
Windows 10 is easy to support and manage, with streamlined upgrades, regular maintenance fixes, vendor support and industry-wide expertise. Comprehensive endpoint management simplifies user, device and application management, while the cloud means IT can deploy, manage and update devices wherever your teams happen to be working. Microsoft has also moved to a continuous delivery model with Windows 10, with code updated on a regular basis, complemented by partner offerings like HP’s Migration Service to make adopting the world’s most advanced operating system a breeze.
HP's Migration Services offer the following benefits:
- Help customers assess their environment and readiness for transition
- Build and test a custom Windows 10 image
- Free up IT resources to work on strategic planning and projects
- Provide image update services
This combination of features and dedicated support from partners like HP make Windows 10 an attractive proposition for any business, giving users the modern interface, advanced security features, and streamlined deployment essential for operating efficiently and securely.
