HoloLens Commercial Suite debuts – Dev kit now available in Canada and U.S.
I worked on HoloLens for two years and can assure you that it’s amazing. With the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition, businesses can get the Microsoft HoloLens Commercial Suite, which adds a lot of nice new features:
- Kiosk mode: Limit which apps run on the device, to enable demo or showcase experiences.
- Mobile Device Management (MDM) for HoloLens: IT departments can manage multiple HoloLens devices simultaneously using solutions like Microsoft InTune. Manage settings, select apps to install, and set security configurations tailored to your organization’s needs.
- Identity: Azure Active Directory and next-generation credentials with pin unlock.
- Windows Update for Business: Control operating system updates to devices and get support for the long-term servicing branch.
- Data security: BitLocker data encryption and secure boot is enabled on HoloLens, providing the same level of security protection as any other Windows device.
- Work access: Anyone in your organization can remotely connect to the corporate network through a virtual private network on a HoloLens. Also, HoloLens can access Wi-Fi networks that require credentials.
- Windows Store for Business: Your IT department can set up a private enterprise store that contains only your company’s apps for your specific HoloLens usage. Securely distribute your enterprise software to selected groups of enterprise users.
