Build 2016 For System Builders – Windows 10 Sessions Part 1

Following on from yesterday's post on Windows Server 2016 sessions from Build 2016, today we have the Windows 10 related sessions. Strictly speaking, some of these aren't Windows 10, instead I'm also including the Windows Store for Business as well as identity sessions, as these are closely related. I'll split this update into multiple posts so as to not overwhelm, as there were plenty of good Windows 10 related sessions that may of interest to you. Today I'll focus on the more business desktop related features, and branch out in tomorrow's post. Remember, that while some of the Build content is developer focused, it's worth watching because it's giving a heads up for what to expect in the future.

Enterprise Apps and the Windows Store for Business

Windows 10 offers new solutions for building, selling and deploying apps to organizations. The Windows Store for Business enables apps to be acquired in bulk and the ability to publish LOB apps to your own organization or another organization. The Windows Store for Business also offers multiple licensing and deployment options to enable organizations of any size to use your app. In this session, learn how to maximize the capabilities of the store whether you develop in-house apps or are targeting your app to be sold to organizations. We will show the app lifecycle, including publishing, acquisition, deployment, and the best practices when building enterprise apps.

Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection

Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) is a new service built into Windows 10 enabling enterprises to detect, investigate, and respond to advanced attacks on their networks. Windows Defender ATP adds a new “post-breach” layer of protection to the Windows 10 security stack. Combining client technology with cloud-based analytics, Windows Defender ATP is able to detect attackers and threats that have evaded other defenses, and enables enterprises to investigate the potential scope of breach across endpoints, and providing relevant Threat Intelligence and response recommendations. In this session we will show you an end-to-end demo, starting with an attack and investigating the attack using the Windows Defender ATP portal.
