Introducing Windows 365: A Better Platform for Hybrid Work

As the world has moved to a more hybrid work style, Microsoft has adapted with us. The tech titan recently launched Windows 365 - bringing the Windows 10 OS to the Azure cloud. Now remote employees on Windows 10 have access to their apps, data, and settings across personal and corporate devices. Quick to deploy, simple to maintain, and integrative within the larger Microsoft ecosystem - Windows 365 makes hybrid work easy. 

Here's How Your Business and Remote Employees Can Benefit from Windows 365:

Adapting to Hybrid Work

Hybrid work has fundamentally changed the role of technology in the workplace. Work environments are in need of systems that center on productivity, security, and simplicity. Windows 365 was designed for each, by offering a scalable cloud operating system to businesses of all sizes. Windows 365 turns any device into a personalized and productive digital workspace, supporting business apps like Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, and Power Platform. Performance is easy to monitor in the Endpoint Analytics dashboard, where your IT team can monitor diagnostic checks pulse out upgrades, and receive recommendations for optimization.

Windows 365 was designed with cybersecurity at the core. All user data is stored in the cloud and protected by the principles of Zero Trust. Information is stored and secured in the cloud, rather than at the endpoint, with layered tools such as multi-factor authentication and Azure Active Directory vetting user behavior. Your IT team can delegate user permissions, with role-based settings for licensing, device management, and Cloud PC management. 

Three Business Benefits of Windows 365

In this new, and highly distributed working world, employees need access to corporate resources anywhere, anytime. How exactly does Windows 365 deliver on its promise of secure productivity? Here are three ways:

  1. Powerful - Users are able to stream all tools, applications, settings, and data from the cloud across any device through their Cloud PC. Your IT team can scale up or down based on business need, with versatility in storage and processing power. 
  2. Simple - Cloud PC users can pick up right where they left off, regardless of the device. Windows 365 makes updates, management, and deployment simple. IT administrators can manage Cloud PCs for their entire organization, just as they manage physical PCs. Azure Virtual Desktop layers a seamless virtualization experience over the Windows OS.
  3. Secure - Windows 365 combines cloud support, Zero trust principles, and intuitive user design for robust security. All information is stored in the cloud rather than the device, for greater control and oversight.
