CEO Satya Nadella unveiled a completely revamped Windows family for use in businesses and organizations at an online event on Tuesday. The solutions featured also include a Windows PC running entirely in the group’s cloud, similar to Google’s Chrome OS online operating system.
Organizations of all sizes can use Windows 365 to become more agile and resilient, Nadella said. The offer is aimed at the smallest and largest companies to keep employees connected. Banks could use the system to meet strict regulatory requirements. The system is also suitable for government agencies working in some of the most remote areas of the world.
A number of changes relate to security, for example to prevent phishing attacks. In Windows 11 for Business, the group introduces a protection feature (“Defender SmartScreen”) that warns users not to enter their login details on fake websites and malware.
According to Microsoft, the Windows 11 system for corporate customers is designed to be inclusive and barrier-free from the ground up. The “Focus Sessions” feature should help minimize distraction when working. System-wide live captions are designed to make spoken content easier to understand. It was not made clear which of the new features will also be available in languages other than English from the start.
The head of the group, Nadella, emphasized that Microsoft wants not only to remove restrictions on the devices used, but also to remove obstacles to optimal work. “What we show you today is an operating system that adapts to you. To the person, to the task, to the device you are using, and not the other way around. This is very important in the new world of work.”
Shares of Microsoft temporarily lost 1.07 percent to $311.61 on the US NASDAQ stock exchange.
