Recently Microsoft announced the born of Windows 365 to be early August 2021; It is the Cloud PC version of Windows OS that is dominant over the years. I believe this is will change the whole game in the hybrid working environment
COVID-19 pandemic enforce business to start thinking of the remote working as the best option to overcome the health issues.. Organizations everywhere have transformed themselves through virtual processes and remote collaboration. The ability to work whenever, however, and wherever it’s needed has become the new normal. Everyone want to have working environment that has technologies that’s familiar, easy to use and easy to access. Hybrid working environment becoming the key to success. Microsoft announcing Windows 365; the Cloud Windows version with almost the same experience as Windows 10 or Windows 11. This will be great empowering tool for businesses to move on the Hybrid working model.
Full Windows experience in all devices.. just like what we used to have.
With this great hybrid work paradox, leaving organizations around the world with multiple options to decide how to get connected in a hybrid world and provide the employees with the needed access to organization’s resources from anywhere. All what they need is to have internet connection.
From my point of view; I can tell that the Cloud PC (Windows 365) is a great technology feature that will change the game. Having a secure full version of windows 10/11 experience will enhance and empower the workspace, regardless of the workforce location or devise.
One of the great features is that you can stream all of your personal apps, tools, data and settings from the cloud across virtually all devises including iPad, Mac and android devises.
I always say, Simplicity is the key to success. Windows 365 have that in hart of the design principles. Microsoft promise us that we can apply the management and security policies to the Cloud PCs in easy way. Also you can monitor the Cloud PC performance and processing power, and easily find the Cloud PC that is not working with best performance needed.
Zero Trust Powering the Cloud security
Per Microsoft, The Cloud PC architecture has been built while keeping in mind the best security practice; Zero Trust architecture, Windows 365 also helps solve for today’s critical security challenges by design, storing and securing information in the cloud, not on the cloud device itself.
Microsoft built Cloud PC specific Security baseline for quick start, you can alter these security policies later on to fit you needs but we wouldn’t recommend doing that without a solid understanding of the side effect turning off these features. Windows Defender is a built-in software into the Windows 365.
The Security baseline provided by Microsoft It not only protects your Cloud PCs, but also gives you security recommendations to lower risks, and helps you quickly find out and troubleshoot any security incidents.
