Protecting Corporate Client Data
Using Windows Work Folders
Corporations today face huge challenges protecting their client
data in this BYOD world. From the information worker standpoint,
workers want flexibility to determine where and how they work.
They want to work on the device of their choice and they want
their data to be available where ever they are. IT departments
want to respond to the information worker’s needs, while still
keeping control of corporate information. Microsoft IT deployed
Work folders as a flagship feature of Windows 8.1 and Windows
Server 2012 R2. Published: July 23, 2014
