The introduction of mobile into the workplace has destroyed previous enterprise security models, introducing a modern operating system (OS) architecture that puts the employee in the driver’s seat.
At the same time, breaches targeting traditional Windows operating systems are at an all-time high, with over 1 billion records compromised in the last two years.
In response, Microsoft has made several updates to its operating system to make it easier for IT security professionals to protect corporate data, without affecting the user experience -- a win-win for everyone in the enterprise.
Welcome to the Mobile-Driven Enterprise
With traditional enterprise IT architectures, IT departments focused on controlling the flow of data by maintaining a network perimeter. All software was preinstalled and several security agents ran on the desktop device to protect the system, but performance often suffered in the process.
Now, employees can choose their own devices, select from a catalog of IT services, and update the OS on their own devices.
As a result, data now lives everywhere on devices, in apps, in the cloud, and on-premises, so IT security professionals have to be confident that data is secure even when it is far outside the perimeter.
Protection at the File Level
Windows 10 resolves a number of security and mobile device management issues evident in previous versions, that included the use of an open file system and OS kernel, vulnerable to modifications by other applications.
