Microsoft IT is taking advantage of updated security features in Windows 10 to help protect employees and company data. Additional layers of protection in Windows 10 help us do a better job of protecting data and detecting risky behaviors and sophisticated attacks. With each release of Windows 10, new features and tools help us quickly detect malware and respond to threats or cyberattacks—continually enhancing data security in our environment.
Windows Information Protection in Windows 10 helps protect corporate information from being shared in public locations, such as email or social media. It provides data security for your company documents, and helps keep your company information within the bounds of your corporate network. Learn how it distinguishes between personal and work documents, and how you can, if necessary, change a file’s protection.
Microsoft IT looked to the capabilities of the cloud to help address the challenges of monitoring and protecting our corporate network from advanced adversaries and threats. Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) combines built-in behavioral sensors, machine learning, and security analytics that quickly adapt to changing threats. With this threat intelligence, Windows Defender ATP helps us investigate and respond to advanced threats faster and more precisely than ever before.
Microsoft IT manages a highly mobile workforce and sets policies for a wide variety of both personal and company devices. Although we champion mobility, it’s also important that we protect our company data. Windows Information Protection, introduced in Windows 10, differentiates between personal and business information—encrypting company data and helping to prevent inadvertent data sharing. We can protect our data and allow our employees to store work or personal information on any device.
When universal design principles challenged our thinking, Microsoft IT took accessibility to a new level with the design of our updated lobby experience. Not only did we incorporate accessible features into the multitouch technologies throughout our new lobbies, we leveraged personas to build inclusive improvements into our designs from the start. The holistic approach goes beyond typical accessibility scenarios—it provides an improved experience across a broad audience by addressing more subtle, situational impairments.
