This week at WinHEC, we were able to talk to silicon, hardware, and device partners about the advances we are making in Windows 10 to simplify building Windows devices, drivers, and apps. This talk covered the key advances we disclosed this week, which include:
The Windows 10 device platform allows IHVs to develop a single universal driver that can be deployed across all Windows 10 device families (e.g. PCs, phones, IoT).
The Windows 10 device platform provides new tools and techniques to reduce the cost and complexity of imaging and manufacturing Windows 10 devices.
In-market and new hardware development boards will support Windows 10 and Windows universal drivers.
Windows 10 will include a new IoT edition for small devices that is tuned to run Windows universal apps and drivers and is royalty free to makers and device builders.
Security and Compliance are two of the biggest concerns for businesses who are looking to migrate workloads to the public cloud. Businesses can take advantage of Configuration Manager 2012 R2 (ConfigMgr) and Security Compliance Manager (SCM) to keep their Azure VMs in 'green' state while reducing the attack surface and security risks of their VMs. In this session we'll take a look at how to secure your Azure VMs using Endpoint Protection, maintain patch level using ConfigMgr 2012 R2 and how to meet your security compliance requirements using SCM and ConfigMgr Compliance Settings.
