Microsoft recently unveiled Windows 365, a subscription service that lets your business experience Windows 10 or Windows 11 (when it comes out) on the cloud. Also known as Cloud PC, Microsoft claims this service will provide a more secure, productive experience for workers.
“With Windows 365, we’re creating a new category: the Cloud PC,” said Satya Nadella, chairman and CEO, Microsoft. “Just like applications were brought to the cloud with SaaS, we are now bringing the operating system to the cloud, providing organizations with greater flexibility and a secure way to empower their workforce to be more productive and connected, regardless of location.”
How Windows 365 Works
So, how does this new Cloud PC service work? Well, users will be able to stream their Windows experience – including apps, content, and settings – from Microsoft’s cloud to any device by signing in to an online portal. When they switch devices, they can pick up right where they left off.
Microsoft says this service will enable hybrid workers to securely access corporate resources by turning any device into “a personalized, productive and secure digital workspace.” Moreover, workers will enjoy the greater flexibility provided by allowing them to work from different locations.
Powerful, Simple, & Secure
Scaling is easy, thanks to the versatility provided by the cloud in processing power and storage. You can easily upgrade your plan depending on your workload. Also, the Cloud PC eliminates the headache management faces with issuing and securing new devices for new staff members. So, if your organization employs seasonal workers or regularly turns over staff, you can easily remove them from your plan once they no longer work for your company.
Windows 365 is also secure by design, thanks to the power of the cloud and the principles of Zero Trust. Microsoft stores and secures information in the cloud, not the device, providing maximum security. Moreover, subscribers will benefit from the frequent and rich Microsoft security upgrades.
Microsoft Endpoint Manager deploys the endpoints, meaning you don’t require additional resources to run Windows 365. In fact, deployment takes only a matter of minutes.
Although there is currently no offline mode available, Microsoft plans on adding one in the future.
