With Windows 10 IoT Microsoft is launching an operating system that is suitable not only for various industrial applications but for all devices. Areas of application are, for instance, kiosk systems, POS and digital signage as well as industrial control, production systems but also cash terminals or medical devices.
Windows 10 IoT Enterprise has a lot to offer in the section of customizing. Embedded Lockdown features such as Unbranded Boot, Embedded Logon, Shell Launcher and Assigned Access allow the operating system to disappear completely behind your application. With customized OEM information you can appear even more clearly as a manufacturer of a certain system.
Extending security features never hurts. Microsoft thought like this as well and put a special focus on the topic in favor of all users. From BitLocker to Secure Boot to Mobile Device Management, Windows 10 IoT Enterprise has a lot to offer. As mentioned in the introduction, the features are only active if you want to.
True to the motto "all good things come in threes" Microsoft handles the licensing model quite simply. With the three SKUs called "Entry", "Value" and "High End" you can now assign one of these SKUs to each CPU and as well to a certain price.
