Why Windows 10 is a “Game-Changer”
Why Windows 10 is a “Game-Changer”
In this video, Mike presents why Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system will become a Game-Changer.
Windows 10 has changed significantly from Windows 7 and Windows 8 / 8.1. It has changed both architecturally with design changes and around security. Windows 10 has virtualized some of the security components and has changed in deployment to actually enable automated components including provisioning for mobile devices. It’s changed in manageability and supportability for remote devices to managed very easily; not just for a mobile phone but actuality for any mobile device that is running Windows 10.
Many of the classic tools that we’ve utilized in previous versions of Windows such as tools that manage and deploy Windows still exist in Windows 10 but now we have new tools that integrate with Azure, Active Directory, Microsoft Intune and Windows Forefront is now built in to Windows 10.
Microsoft has done an amazing job of ingesting a lot of the different features they’ve had scattered around for Windows 7 that make Windows 10 a great OS into this new core operating system.
Windows Defender in Windows 10 is a REAL anti-malware solution. Windows Defender is on scale with some of the bigger names and more expensive anti-malware solutions. In Windows 7, Defender was scaled back, it wasn’t a big deal. It would help prevent some malware attacks but the user was actively asked to deploy a different solution. Now in Windows 10, you don’t really need a different solution and Windows Defender makes sure that you are secure by turning itself back on if the user forgets to turn it back on or if the user doesn’t update their anti-malware solution. Windows 10 now identifies when you’re not as secure as you should be and turns Windows Defender on for you. This is a great feature. I can’t tell you how many times I find that a user disables or forgets to update their anti-malware solution and they then get viruses. Windows 10 actually takes care of that for you which is an amazingly great thing.
Because of all of these changes from architectural changes to changes at the usability level and a lot of the new features that are now available as well as a few old features that have become deprecated from non-use, IT Professionals need to educate themselves in Windows 10. Specifically the new features and how to use them in scalability and integration. I strongly recommend that you take a look at our Windows 10 instructor-led training.
