Additional Windows 8 Enterprise details released

Microsoft Today has released some additional details on the Windows Business blog about what Windows 8 Enterprise would be like. They confirmed it will have all of the features that will be found in Windows 8 Pro plus some additional content that will be included only in the Enterprise edition.

The Enterprise version will include the new Windows To Go feature, Windows To Go lets businesses allow their employees to take their desktop version of Windows 8 and store it on a USB boot drive. This will allow the employee to boot up his Windows 8 desktop from virtually any computer.

Other features include DirectAccess, which will allow Windows 8 Enterprise users to log in remotely to a local corporate network without the need to log into a separate corporate VPN. It will also have BranchCache that will cache files such as documents, websites and more from a business’ network server so that this content is not constantly being re-downloaded from a company’s WAN (wide area network).

Windows 8 Enterprise will also include ways for businesses and IT customers to restrict access to files or apps using AppLocker, along with the ability to automatically side-load any internal Windows 8 Metro based apps. Devices such as tablets that are running on Windows RT will be able to get extended Virtual Desktop Access with Windows 8 Enterprise.
