Windows 11 is the next client operating system, and built on the same foundation as Windows 10. It offers innovations focused on enhancing end-user productivity, and is designed to support today's hybrid work environment.
Microsoft’s investments in update and device management are carried forward. For example, many of the same apps and tools can be used in Windows 11. Many of the same security settings and policies can be applied to Windows 11 devices. You can use Windows Autopilot with a zero touch deployment to enroll your Windows devices in Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
The security and privacy features in Windows 11 are similar to Windows 10. Security for your devices starts with the hardware, and includes OS security, application security, and user & identity security.
With Windows 11 IoT Enterprise Wi-Fi 6E is supported.
In sum, Microsoft designed Windows 10 and Windows 11 to coexist, so that you can use the same familiar tools and process to manage both operating systems. Using a single management infrastructure that supports common applications across both Windows 10 and Windows 11 helps to simplify the migration process. You can analyze endpoints, determine application compatibility, and manage Windows 11 deployments in the same way that you do with Windows 10.
