Microsoft has expanded its Windows 10 OS offering by introducing the ‘Pro’ version, aimed exclusively towards the corporate consumers. This version of Windows 10 offers all the features that you get in the standard version of the OS, along with some dedicated enterprise features.
Let’s take a look at what the Windows 10 Pro OS offers –
Number 1. Microsoft Remote Login
The Windows 10 Pro edition allows you to log in to your machine from anywhere in the world. This included your Files, Folders, and even apps.
Number 2. Microsoft 365 Business
You can now collaborate with your colleagues around the world, safely, wihtout compromising privacy. Chat, meet, call, and collaborate all in one place with Microsoft Teams.
Number 3. Seamless work, Frictionless management
As you have a single login across all services, you can now switch between the desired applications without the need to log in separately.
Number 4. Manage mobile devices and PCs
If you have company-specific applications on your employees’ phones or PCs, you can manage the security and privacy policies of those apps without compromising the privacy of your employees.
Number 5. Add and Manage multiple devices
Domain Join & Group Policy allows you to add new devices to your network and set security policies for many devices at once, all from one management console.
Number 6. Simple and Secure multi-factor authentication
With the need for multi-factor authentication, at an all-time high, Windows 10 Pro offers a simple multi-factor authentication over a phone call, text, or even the Microsoft Authenticator app for mobiles or tablets.
Number 7. Prevent data leaks before they happen
With the Windows Information Protection feature, you can now encrypt your work data and keep it separate from your personal data.
As you can see from the list above, the Windows 10 Pro edition offers some dedicated features exclusively for enterprises, and it is for this reason alone, that Microsoft recommends corporates to opt for this version, instead of the standard version you get as the regulation update.

You can purchase the Windows 10 Pro Edition from the official Microsoft Website, for a one-time payment of $199.
