Windows 10 Enterprise E3 was built for organizations that need enterprise-grade security for their sensitive data, operate in regulated industries, and need increased management functionality. If this sounds like your organization, the Windows 10 Enterprise E3 version is the way to go.
A lot of people believe that most security breaches happen because of an algorithm being hacked, but it turns out, a lot of breaches are a result of credential theft. That’s why it is imperative for any business to ensure that credentials and critical data is kept secure. Credential Guard aims to prevent credential theft with its feature set:
Device Guard works to prevent malicious code from running on devices. Where Credential Guard keeps things safe in the event of a “pass the hash” style attack when someone already has access to a portion of your environment, Device Guard works to make sure that no one gets into your system in the first place through malicious code. It locks down the system so only applications that are specifically trusted can run.
AppLocker can work separately or on top of Windows Defender Device Guard to white list applications at a more granular level.
For years, organizations have been asking for a way to purchase Windows Enterprise without the need for a long-term volume licensing agreement. Windows 10 Enterprise E3 licensed under the CSP (Cloud Solution Provider) program is exactly that solution. At $6 a month per user for Windows 10 E3 any organization is now able to take advantage of Windows 10 Enterprise E3 features without having to lock into a long-term agreement or break the bank. When the software is purchased in a per user licensing format, the user can install Windows 10 on up to five devices that they use.
With these features and more Windows 10 Enterprise E3 stands above Windows 10 Pro as the more secure way to run Windows 10. If you would like to discuss if Windows 10 Enterprise is right for your business, then please contact us today!
