What is Windows Insider Lab for Enterprise and Olympia Corp?

Windows Insider Lab for Enterprise is intended for Windows Insiders who want to try new experimental and pre-release enterprise privacy and security features.

Selected customers are invited to join Olympia Corp and try these features.

  • Validate and test pre-release software in your environment.
  • Provide feedback.

Enterprise features might have reduced or different security, privacy, accessibility, availability, and reliability standards relative to commercially provided services and software. We may change or discontinue any of the enterprise features at any time without notice.
