Windows 365


What is Windows 365 Cloud PC?

Windows 365 is a subscription-based cloud PC service. When you subscribes and sets it up, you get a remote Windows desktop you can access in any modern web browser from a PC or any mobile devices.

Essentially, you’re accessing a remote Windows PC via a virtual desktop system. You can install whatever Windows software you like and access Windows applications and a full Windows operating system environment through the browser.

The desktop environment is Always on.  In other words, if you have a bunch of application windows open and you disconnect (or close your browser), your desktop will be in the exact same state when you reconnect. Imagine moving from a Mac to an iPad or a Chromebook to a Linux PC and keeping the exact state of the desktop consistent between your devices. Every employee gets their own personalized cloud PC.

IT

        scenes

•      It offers many configuration options to easily scale to meet employees’ needs, with the right processing power and storage to do their job, when and how

         they need it

•      Windows 365 is secure by design and built with the principles of Zero Trust, Windows 365 secures and stores information in the cloud, not on the device, 

         providing a secure, productive experience for users. Always up to date and building on the strength of rich Microsoft security capabilities and baselines,

         Windows 365 takes away layers of security complexity and recommends the best security settings for the environment at hand
