A new Microsoft website offers details of the Windows 10 Roadmap for business, allowing corporate customers to see capabilities under development or almost ready to implement, as well as features already delivered in the release code.
The site provides a valuable snapshot of features recently made available, along with those in public preview or still under development and testing, and even those that have been dropped from Windows 10.
A glance at the list shows that multifactor authentication for apps and websites is currently in Public Preview for Windows 10, along with the Edge Extensions feature that lets users download add-ons for the Edge browser.
Also in public preview is one of Microsoft's headline features for corporate users of Windows 10. Enterprise Data Protection is intended to give organisations greater control over data through file-level encryption, and leak prevention through policies that govern the applications that can be used to access corporate data, for example.
Currently still in development is the Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection service that Microsoft detailed last month. This is a combination of endpoint and cloud-based tools intended to provide a post-breach layer of protection to the Windows 10 security stack.
Also listed as still under development are Start menu updates, a way to unlock a PC with a Windows or Android smartphone, and a bunch of features to enhance the usability of Windows 10, including improvements to the Microsoft Passport two-factor authentication system that can use biometrics.
Microsoft is working on updates to the Continuum feature that adapts the user experience to the type of peripherals connected, such as enabling a Continuum-compatible phone to display via a monitor connected to a Windows 10 PC.
Also under development is a 'Remote Display Experience' that will allow users to control Windows 10 IoT Core applications from any Windows 10 desktop PC, tablet, or phone, while the Windows 10 IoT Core device will be able to get sensor readings from any connected Windows 10 device.
Microsoft warned that the roadmap page is for "informational purposes only" and may change at any time without notice.
