With Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft targets business users

Microsoft Windows 10 Creator's Update which is scheduled to arrive on early next year, will have more in the bucket than 3D-imaging and mixed-reality tools for artists- for business users, it will be offering a variety of new security and productivity features.

In his latest blog post, Rob Lefferts, Microsoft's director of program management for Windows Enterprise and Security highlighted some of the business-focused updates.


Improved tracking of security issues, more forensics and remediation tools and cloud-based enhancements are among the new features set to arrive with the next Windows 10 update. The size of Windows updates can be reduced through new differential download capabilities.

Not long after Microsoft revealed the Windows 10 Anniversary Update in August, the company announced that the next version of the operating system would bring a variety of creativity-focused tools for 3D imaging, painting and other artistic applications. Microsoft also plans to launch several new devices along with the so-called Creators Update including devices to support design tasks, including the Surface Studio desktop screen and the Surface Dial accessory.

Lefferts said that the company is aiming to boost capabilities for business users with the upcoming Creators Update.

"The cyber threat landscape today requires an ongoing and relentless focus on security," he said. "The Creators Update will continue to bring new security capabilities to IT administrators to better protect, defend and respond to threats on their networks and devices."
