Microsoft’s launch of Windows 10 is a step toward satisfying the enterprise administrator’s needs for management and user experience customization. This book provides the enterprise administrator with the knowledge needed to fully utilize the advanced feature set of Windows 10 Enterprise.

This practical guide shows Windows 10 from an administrator's point of view. You'll focus on areas such as installation and configuration techniques based on your enterprise requirements, various deployment scenarios and management strategies, and setting up and managing admin and other user accounts. You’ll see how to configure Remote Server Administration Tools to remotely manage Windows Server and Azure Active Directory.

Lastly, you will learn modern Mobile Device Management for effective BYOD and how to enable enhanced data protection, system hardening, and enterprise-level security with the new Windows 10 in order to prevent data breaches and impede attacks.

By the end of this book, you will know the key technologies and capabilities in Windows 10 and will confidently be able to manage and deploy these features in your organization.
