Windows 10’s Microsoft Passport and Windows Hello use biometrics to eliminate the need for passwords, allowing people to log in to a PC with a scan of a finger, iris, or face. Credential Guard uses virtualization to protect against hackers who use one account to gain access to the credentials of another user. Advanced Threat Analytics detects abnormal patterns and recommends changes to help protect your users. IT departments can federate identities using Azure Active Directory, in order to make signing into multiple services simple and more secure.
Enterprise Mobility Suite provides features to help IT protect and manage corporate applications. New InTune native apps will be offered in Box and Adobe, helping to prevent accidental sharing of confidential data. Azure Rights Management also protects nearly any type of data. Starting in December, Customer Lockbox will give customers control over access to data in Office 365 and Equivio Analytics for eDiscovery.
Windows 10 Device Guard prevents the installation of untrusted or malicious code. Windows Defender offers built in protection for all Windows 10 users and Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection helps prevent users from accidentally downloading untrusted software.
