Adobe Fresco X Surface

Microsoft’s tablet computer is also becoming an option for artists whose digital mark-making follows the process of traditional drawing and painting – artists who would currently be drawn to Apple’s iPad and apps such as Procreate – though this has less to do with the upgraded hardware that Adobe has released a Windows version of its new painting app, Fresco, that’s only available for Surface tablets and Wacom’s MobileStudio Pro.

Surface Pen

The new Surface Pro1 provides people with the most responsive and natural digital inking experience, thanks to the new Surface Pen.

Safety and Security You Can Feel

2020 shaped up to be one of the most challenging years for digital transformation and the shift in how we do business. Remote working has become the norm, and with excitement, it has opened the doors for cyber attackers.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 security features include a built-in firewall, an anti-malware solution, and automatic updates. This means you and your business will have access to the newest Teams and Office 365 security features on their Surface devices.

Business and IT leaders want to continue driving creative solutions forward to remain competitive while enabling a great employee experience. Organisations can save time and increase productivity, helping people move seamlessly between individual contributions and collaborative teamwork.

Cloud To Chip Security

Be reassured that updates are pushed out automatically to your organisation. The UEFI on Surface devices is developed and maintained proactively by Microsoft. In contrast to other Windows 10 devices available in the market today, the Surface Pro 7 provides IT admins with the ability to configure and manage firmware through a rich set of UEFI configuration settings. This provides a layer of hardware control on top of software-based policy management as implemented via mobile device management (MDM) policies, Configuration Manager or Group Policy. For example, organisations deploying devices in highly secure areas with sensitive information can prevent camera use by removing functionality at the hardware level. From a device standpoint, turning the camera off via a firmware setting is equivalent to physically removing the camera.

Device Management With Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Realise cost and time savings with a device portfolio that optimises Microsoft software in the environments your apps are deployed. Businesses that choose Surface and Microsoft 365 see real impact. According to a market study done by Microsoft, IT help desk call times decreased on average from 45 minutes to 15 minutes with Microsoft 365-powered Surface devices being deployed across departments. There have also been 3.5 hours saved thanks to automatic Windows update push patches to Surface devices powered by Microsoft 365. Everything Surface users are doing is faster.

Reducing Risk Costs

Organisations spend a lot of time thinking about reducing the cost of risk for their employees and business. Surface devices introduce a paradigm shift in which security is built into devices rather than added after the fact. With Surface, every layer (firmware, operating environment, and cloud management solutions) of the device is maintained by Microsoft with enterprise-grade security through Conditional Access, Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection, Windows Update for Business, Intune remote-wipe capabilities, Windows Defender Exploit Guard, and Microsoft Defender Application Guard.

The Forrester Consulting TEI study found that investments in Microsoft 365-powered Surface devices enhanced employee productivity, improved workforce collaboration and teamwork, increased security, and delivered more efficient device-related IT operations. With Microsoft 365, Windows Autopilot, and Microsoft Endpoint Manager (which includes Intune), Surface can unlock substantial time savings by automating the traditional run model, giving your IT pros more time to focus on the employee experience. And with a variety of form factors, Surface gives employees the flexibility to work the way they want and increases the potential for innovation.

Businesses that choose Surface gain more than just a device – they gain a strategic enabler for their success. Surface is designed by Microsoft for the Microsoft software people rely on every day. Integrating with existing software and cloud services, Surface extends coordinated security from device to cloud, enhances productivity and collaboration with natural user interfaces that optimise the in-app experience, and simplifies deployment and management – no matter where employees are working.
