Windows 10

The US Department of Defense (DoD) recently directed all US DoD agencies to begin rapid deployment of Windows 10 with the goal of completing the upgrade of 4 million seats to Windows 10 within a year. Impacting devices ranging from desktops to laptops and mobile devices, this deployment marks an unprecedented move for an organisation of its size and complexity, and is the largest enterprise Windows 10 deployment announced to date.

As the US DoD is a prime target for cybercriminals around the world, its leaders understand the importance of securing its baseline systems. This deployment underscores the ability of Windows 10 to help improve DoD’s cybersecurity infrastructure, lower the cost of IT and streamline the IT operating environment.
