Productivity on any device

Boost productivity by providing a modern Windows experience from the cloud to shared devices. Now, frontline workers can access powerful Cloud PCs during their shifts.

Stream a complete, personalized Windows experience

Increase efficiency for frontline workers by providing personalized Windows 365 Cloud PCs that retain their apps, data, and settings whenever they sign in on any device, from any location.

Remove the constraints of shared physical devices

Cloud PCs enable Bring Your Own PC (BYOPC) and remote work scenarios, so your frontline workers aren’t limited by the constraints of sharing physical, on-premises PCs.

To start a shift, employees sign in to Windows 365 from the web or the Windows 365 client. When they sign out, a personalized Cloud PC automatically becomes available for the next employee.

Secure by design

Give frontline staff the flexibility to work remotely without risking the security of corporate data and apps or violating regulatory and compliance requirements.

Reduce security risk with apps and data stored in the cloud

Meet your industry-specific requirements with cloud-based app and data storage that works seamlessly with leading security, identity, and compliance solutions from Microsoft.

Increase productivity and security with automatic sign out

Automatically sign workers out of Cloud PCs if employees forget to log off, ensuring that Cloud PCs remain secured and are available for the next worker.

Keep Cloud PCs protected from unauthorized access

Specify time-out periods for Cloud PCs, allowing workers to leave their devices unattended for quick breaks without risking unauthorized use and quickly resume working when they return.
