Edge joins Microsoft FastTrack program
In her recent blog post, Divya Kumar, Director of Product Marketing, Microsoft Edge & Bing wrote:
“Starting August 2020, eligible customers with 150 or more paid seats of Windows 10 Enterprise can work with a FastTrack Ready Partner to receive deployment guidance for Microsoft Edge. Organizations can also receive deployment guidance directly from FastTrack,”
Once a year, Microsoft Inspire provides Microsoft Business partners and enterprise customers with a platform for building connections.
What is FastTrack Ready Partner program
Microsoft’s FastTrack program enables the transition to the cloud. It already allows eligible customers to deploy Microsoft cloud solutions at no additional cost. This program will include Edge deployment.
What’s new with Microsoft Edge
Thanks to Edge’s native Endpoint DLP, users don’t need additional data loss prevention software. Web browsers are no less than a gateway to all our cloud-computing apps and services. As a result, data protection and governance are essential in the enterprise environment. This is where Microsoft Endpoint DLP comes in handy.
It also claims to minimize the risk of a data breach when using Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 devices.
“With native support in Microsoft Edge, customers can easily extend their control over sensitive data when accessing information via the browser.”
Microsoft Endpoint DLP is now available as a public preview.
According to Microsoft, no other web browser comes close to Edge’s robust phishing and malware protection, which corroborates the NSS Labs’ findings.
Edge recently delivered a new feature called Automatic Profile Switching. This way, Edge users can open links in the correct profile without re-entering credentials.
Thanks to a recent update, Edge users can organize Collections on mobile devices. The feature is available for both Android and iOS users. Since we are on the topic of Collections, Edge users can now also add a note to an item in a collection.
