Quickly find essential antivirus, virtual private network (VPN), and virtualization solutions that support Windows 10. The Ready for Windows site—www.readyforwindows.com—now includes a list of featured software solutions that are supported on, and in use for, Windows 10. This change was made in direct response to feedback we've received from IT pros, who stated that essential software needed to be available before they could consider a migration to Windows 10.
If you're unfamiliar with the site, Ready for Windows enables you to search for supported Windows 10 solutions by solution name or software provider. It also provides details on the adoption status of each solution, by version:
- Adopted means the solution has been installed on at least 10,000 commercial Windows 10 devices.
- Highly Adopted means the solution has been installed on at least 100,000 commercial Windows 10 devices.
