Hoboken, New Jersey - (Vocus) June 14, 2013 —eMazzanti Technologies, a Hoboken, NJ and NYC area IT expert and computer consultant has a new article available that can help small businesses stay up to speed with the latest computer technology. The article is entitled: Top 10 New Business Features in Windows 8. A full copy of the article is available free by clicking here.
“We believe the new Windows 8 operating system is so compelling, that sooner or later businesses will migrate,” says Jennifer Mazzanti, president, eMazzanti Technologies. “Using a single OS across all office and mobile devices provides a uniform, more powerful user experience.”
New Business Features in Windows 8
With Windows 8 now available, here are a few of the top 10 new business features that are part of a complete eMazzanti article:
1. Trusted boot/secure boot (UEFI)
This implements a secure boot process and allows the machine to verify the integrity of the network environment, thus preventing malicious code from executing before the computer boots into the operating system. This means that your machine is protected before the Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware software is able to load when booting up, protecting you against attacks such as root-kits.
2. Windows-to-go (Enterprise Edition)
This is a fully manageable corporate Windows 8 desktop on a bootable USB drive. As an example, this allows employees to take the USB drive home and use Windows-to-go at home instead of connecting via a VPN connection, creating a more secure BYOD option for employees.
3. File History
This is a robust, automatic, and silent backup service app that continuously protects files stored in libraries, desktop favorites, and contact folders. This uses an external drive.
4. Enhanced security: BitLocker, AppLocker, and SmartScreen
BitLocker is built into Windows 8 Pro and allows you to encrypt your device. AppLocker, built into the Enterprise edition, locks down your machine to only allow usage of specific apps (when using in Kiosk mode, for example). SmartScreen (also in Enterprise) protects you again social engineering attacks and download infections.
5. VDI Enhancements – Client Hyper V (Enterprise Edition)
Desktop virtualization has been enhanced with Microsoft RemoteFX. If you’re an Enterprise Edition user, you can have a rich desktop experience so that you can use 3D graphics, USB peripherals, and touch-enabled devices across any type of network, LAN or WAN. Windows 8 also includes Client Hyper-V, which allows you to run up to four virtualized operating systems on your desktop.
