Microsoft has once again revolutionized the operating system. On August 2 they will release Windows 365, the world’s first cloud PC. Developed during the pandemic to cater to our new hybrid world, it will revolutionize the way business and life operate. A flexible, seamless portable cloud PC you can take with you anywhere, any time.
Microsoft’s annual work trend index interviewed 30,000 people across thirty-one countries. What it found was that there is no turning back. 73% of workers say they want flexible remote work options but at the same time, 67% of employees want more in-person collaboration. Employees want both. They don’t want to go back to the way things were. There is too much to gain. Hybrid work is here to stay.
Increase productivity with the cloud PC
Today, users have many devices with data and apps sprawled across all of them. This inconsistency creates confusion and disorganization. But what if you could have just one setup that you could use across all your devices? Whether it’s a tablet or a PC or a phone – even a mac book, Windows 365 allows you to access your cloud PC on any device. It keeps all your data and credentials on the cloud. Streaming Windows 10 or Windows 11 to any device, users can log off midway through their work on one device, and login and pick up where they left off on another.
Although Windows 365 is accessed from the browser, once a user is logged in they tap into the fast download and upload speeds of the cloud. Regardless of the speed of the physical machine, users can carry on with their work and share large files with team members from all over the world.
Secure the employee PC with the power of the cloud
One of the worries of businesses today is that with this new sprawled digital workforce that data security has been compromised. With Windows 365 user data is kept in one place only – on the cloud. Using a Zero Trust security model, a model which does not assume that a PC should be authenticated because it sits within an organization’s network, Windows 365 keeps login credentials on the cloud. Windows 365 provides its own baseline security policy which can be tailored to the unique needs of every business. Multifactor authentication can also be added for an extra layer of security.
Remote PC administration
Windows 365 has redesigned virtualization. Gone is the virtual private network. The cloud PC is seamless for not only the user but the administrator. The IT administrator no longer needs to be physically available to update a device or apply a policy. With powerful analytics available at their fingertips, they can monitor devices and the cloud for performance and resource issues. They can make all the necessary changes through their administrator access of Windows 365.
Adapt to the new today and save costs
There is no doubt that today businesses have been thrown many challenges adapting to the pandemic. Windows 365 combats these challenges head on, helping businesses not only adapt but thrive. The opportunities in this new hybrid workforce are boundless. Having the most powerful setup puts your business ahead of the rest. Contact the experts at Technology Solutions to see how the team can help your business save time and money with the new cloud PC.
Hybrid work is one of the best things that this horrible pandemic has brought. If we, both companies and employees, use this lesson and don’t go back to how things were, we will grow as a society. There is so much time and effort to be saved by just doing certain tasks from home (or someplace else but not at work).
