  1. Windows for the Enterprise • Boris UlíkTechnology Solutions ProfessionalMicrosoft Slovakia

  2. Why Windows 8.1?

  3. What’s new in Windows 8.1 UI enhancements Platform enhancements Start button Boot to desktop Start screen sync Multiple tile sizes Enhanced Search Reading List Take calls from lock screen Flexible window sizes Multi-monitor improvements Improved built in apps (incl. Mail) Automatic app updates Improved touch keyboard 7-10” tablet support SkyDrive integration InstantGo devices MiraCast support Personal hotspot Assigned access (kiosk) Tap to print (NFC) Auto triggered VPN Device Encryption Improved fingerprint log in support Mobile device mgmt. (MDM) Remote business data removal

  4. Enhanced Performance • Windows 8.1 – better than Windows 7 Faster boot times Newer Windows 8 certified PCs can boot up to 36% faster. Better battery life Users upgrading Windows 8 certified scan experience up to 13% longer battery life. Advanced security Windows 8 is 21 times less likely to be infected by malware than Windows XP, and 7 time less likely than Windows 7. Better overall performance Windows 8 uses fewer system resources, resulting in up to 22% less memory usage than Windows 7. Familiar desktop The desktop you're used to is still here and better than ever Longer Battery Life Less Memory Usage Faster Boot 13% 22% 36% Security Familiar Desktop

  5. Staying with Windows XP is a bad idea Faster boot times Support for Windows XP ends April 8, 2014. Implications:Security risksCompatibility issuesNo one to callPotential down time Search your PC, web and SkyDrive from one location Office 365 Beautiful devices Skype call from lock screen Better performance Windows store and modern apps Faster Wi-Fi reconnection Improved task manager Easier and more powerful file explorer with ribbon UI Longer battery life Auto-triggered VPN

  12. Why Software Assurance?

  13. Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack Virtualize Restore • Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) • Virtually any application, anywhere • Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DaRT) • Restore user productivity quickly • Microsoft User Experience Virtualization(UE-V) • Change your device, keep your experience  • Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) • Enable your Windows XP-based apps on Windows 7 Manage • Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) • Simplified BitLocker management • Microsoft Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM) • Checkpoint your policy rollout, minimize downtime

  14. Windows 8.1 Enterprise Enterprise Sideloading Start Screen Control Windows To Go DirectAccess BranchCache Virtual Desktop Infrastructure AppLocker • Deploy Windows 8 apps from outside of the Windows Store • Control Start screen configurations for different groups and roles using Group Policy • Create a corporate Windows 8.1 environment on a USB stick • Connected to corporate networks, seamlessly and more securely • Users in the branch office can download documents and apps faster • Improved end-user experience • Specify what software is allowed to run on a user's PCs

  15. DirectAccess • Productivity • Transparent direct connection to corporate resources – no user interaction is required • Windows 8.1 / Windows Server 2012 R2 do not require: • Two consecutive public IPv4 addresses (DirectAccess servers can be deployed behind NAT device) • IPv6 deployed within internal corporate network (integrated NAT64 / DNS64) • PKI (certificates) deployed at the domain-joined computers (can employ Kerberos Proxy functionality) • Consider “computer-only” scenario • Windows 8.1 Devices with TPM chip can benefit from Virtual Smart Cards • Support for “Metered Internet Connections”

  16. Windows To Go • Productivity • Windows 8.1 on Certified USB drive • USB 3.0, capable of 2 partitions at least (“Basic Disk”) • Supports various scenarios • VPN replacement, Vendors, BYOD, … • Secured with encryption (BitLocker) • Connected via VPN or DirectAccess • Managed by Group Policies, SCCM, Windows Intune • Applications can be installed or loaded via App-V

  17. BranchCache • Productivity • Enables documents caching within subnets interconnected over unreliable WAN • Centralized / Distributed modes • Centralized mode requires Windows Server OS deployed on the local subnet • Centralized mode is configurable for Cache Preloading • GPO / Self-configuration of branch office computers • Support for SMB, HTTP, FTP

  18. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure • Productivity • Software Assurance includes VDA license • Windows Server Remote Desktop Services scenarios: • Session based (Full desktop / RemoteApps) • Virtual Machine based (Personal Desktop / Desktop Pool) • Requires only HTTP(S) / RDP • Enables BYOD / Contingent staff / VPN replacement scenarios • RDP client with RemoteFX

  19. App-V (MDOP) • Productivity • Enables virtualization of applications • Applications run within App-V agent as if locally installed • Ability to run different versions of the same software • Includes all components for various scenarios • From standalone deployment to full infrastructure (integrated with SCCM) • Ability to load and cache / pre-cache software to the client • Windows To Go / VDI (Desktop Pool) • Ability to track and manage license usage

  20. UE-V (MDOP) • Productivity • Apps and OS personalization settings roam across Windows • Synchronization is smart – logins are fast • Based on GP configuration via Templates • Template Generator is included / Microsoft Gallery • Ability to roll back settings to initial state • Integrated with existing tools • Active Directory Group Policies, MDT, SCCM

  21. Workplace Join • Productivity • Device enrollment • Device equipped with certificate – not managed, yet, not “unknown” • Leverage Windows Intune • Manage access to corporate data • Integrate with Work Folders • Support for iOS

  22. Assigned Access • Productivity • Enables a single Windows Store app experience on the device • User only experiences the specified app • Unable to access system files and other apps • Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry • Broader set of device lockdown capabilities (ATM, etc.)

  23. BitLocker & BitLocker to Go • Security • Available also in Windows 8(.1) Pro • Consider for Data Leakage / OS Integrity scenarios • Windows 8(.1) / Windows Server 2012 (R2) BitLocker enhancements: • Encryption of only “used” disk space • Network unlock capability • Employ TPM chip with PIN, whenever possible • BitLocker to Go protects removable media • Enforced via GPO
