Why upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

Windows 10 is the most secure Windows ever.  The threat landscape has changed dramatically in the last decade. Windows 10 includes built-in, intelligent security technologies that help you protect against, detect, and respond to today’s advanced threats—reducing the number of security events requiring IT remediation by up to 33%.* With both endpoint protection (EPP) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities, Windows 10 enables you to safeguard your data, devices, and intellectual property with enterprise-grade protection and control not available in Windows 7 or Windows 8. And, with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you have new prevention capabilities designed to stop attacks as they happen and before they have impact.

Simplify IT and reduce costs.  Windows 10 enables you to deploy, manage, and update devices in a modern way—leveraging cloud-based identity, device, and app management capabilities that reduce the burden on IT and the costs associated with keeping devices secure, reliable, and up-to-date. Windows AutoPilot can make any new PC enterprise-ready by automatically configuring devices when users log in with their company credentials—no imaging required. Windows Analytics provides proactive, smart insights that can help you identify potential upgrade blockers, ensure your devices stay up to date**, and streamline IT processes. Dynamic Management allows to you dictate settings based on location, network, or time—enabling bring your own device (BYOD) scenarios while enforcing the security and control measures required to protect your data. Windows as a service simplifies the process for staying current, delivering new features incrementally and introducing less change which; therefore, reduces the impact to application compatibility. Cumulative quality updates contain all the fixes that you need while differential updates reduce the load on your organization's network and enable the preservation of user settings, saving time. In practice, Windows 10 requires up to 20% less time to manage than Windows 7 and takes about one-tenth the time to deploy.*
