ABOUT OUR EVENT
The need to support multiple device formats and deliver business applications regardless of device and location has become more important as the shift to flexible workstyles was accelerated through the pandemic. The need to secure both Windows and non-Windows devices became a priority and being able to extend Windows to new use cases with Windows Azure Virtual Desktop and Windows 365 quickly caught on.
Starting with security we will look into new security advances with Defender for Endpoint on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Linux devices. Next, we re-examine the world of desktop virtualization and how it is playing a role in moving Windows workspaces to the cloud while delivering to almost any device. Also exploring Windows 365 and what makes it a distinct offering worth examining based on user workstyles.
