The next evolution of Windows is coming. Windows 11 is built on the familiar Windows foundation but reimagined to boost employee productivity and enhance collaboration on the most secure version of Windows yet.
Here are some key features and highlights to get your customers motivated to upgrade :
A simple, powerful UX can help their employees focus and be more productive. A streamlined UI helps cut through the clutter and reduce cognitive load. Snap layouts and personalized Widgets make it easier to stay organized. Workflows can be automated right from the desktop.
The new Windows features a smarter way to collaborate with Microsoft Teams 1 integration. Meet and share content easily. Mute and unmute right from the taskbar. Auto-blur and noise cancellation keep background activity where it belongs—in the background.
It's easy for your customers to adopt with app compatibility and cloud management. They can migrate with confidence knowing their favorite apps and familiar management tools from Windows 10 will still work, backed by the App Assure promise. There's also more control over updates and the ability to deploy remote PCs in compliance with company policies.
Help protect customer data and access with a Zero Trust-ready OS. Safeguard their business data and identity with powerful built-in security, including hardware-based isolation, encryption, and malware protection. Easily protect user identities with password-less security.
Rest assured that as customers chart their path to Windows 11, Windows 10 devices will still receive updates, helping them remain productive and secure.
