The security of the devices your employees use, and their experience when using these, is core to the success of any business. It’s common for businesses to bolster their central IT security which then adversely impacts employee mobility and productivity – in essence, placing restrictions on what can be achieved with the devices employees use daily such as laptops, tablets and mobiles.

According to the NCSC, just under half of businesses have detected at least one breach or attack in the last year. Businesses can gain access to increased security features while providing employees with greater mobility and productivity features with Windows 10 Pro, alongside the wealth of innovative new devices running it.

Stay better protected from modern security threats

Do you know what the most common cyberattacks are for 2018?

  1. Botnets – 33 percent of companies reported breaches from botnets, viruses, spyware, and malware
  2. Easy mark attack methods such as poorly secured cloud apps, phishing – 72 percent of breaches reported were from fraudulent emails
  3. Ransomware – 17 percent of breaches reported were from ransomware

Windows 10 Pro devices provide hardware-enabled security features such as multi-factor authentication, helping prevent phishing attacks, and automatic protection for lost or stolen devices – minimising the risk and financial impact of modern security threats. Many devices include biometric security, such as facial recognition and finger print scanning, and it’s important to educate employees on the importance of using these tools.

Simplify your device management

Most businesses use a wide variety of devices and managing those can be complex and costly. Windows 10 Pro devices have a built-in mobile device management client which makes managing devices easy. And customisable, automatic updates ensure that devices stay current with the latest innovations – on your business’ terms.

Generate greater productivity

Windows 10 starts up to an average 28 percent faster than Windows 7. You can interact more naturally and efficiently with devices using new input methods such as touch, digital pen & inking, and voice. Shift easily from touch and stylus to keyboard and mouse using Continuum. And get more done with the intelligent personal assistant Cortana. And we found that in companies who had a strong digital culture 22 percent of employees consider themselves more productive, compared to just 8 percent of those without a strong culture.

Devices that meet individual needs and budgets

Windows 10 Pro provides choice in respect to devices – including a range of price points and feature sets. Select from a range of high-quality, versatile devices with built-in support for touch, stylus, voice recognition, mobile broadband and more – on form factors from a small, thin 2-in-1 to rugged tablets to touch-screen conference room displays.
