From video chats and quick tasks to major projects, look to Surface to help you handle it all. In this article, we take a look at the Microsoft Surface family of devices.
Designed for the modern workplace, Microsoft’s leading range of Surface devices are the perfect fit for any office environment – even if that office is the kitchen table or corner coffee shop.
From people always on the move to those who tackle intensive creative tasks, there is a Surface that’s a perfect match for everyone on your team. Surface laptops and 2-in-1s are small business-ready.
Across industries, the shift to remote and hybrid productivity was a tipping point to redefine the future of how we work, collaborate and learn outside physical office spaces or classrooms. We have seen a significant increase in the reliance on technology to keep organisations connected.
In the past year, Surface usage within enterprise organisations nearly doubled, driven by strong growth in the use of collaboration and productivity apps to maintain business continuity.
As a company, Microsoft is committed to designing technology that fosters productivity, creativity and connection to empower people to be successful wherever they work and learn in an office or classroom, or remotely. The Surface line of devices embraces just that.
For the latest and greatest Windows hardware on the market, look no further than Microsoft's Surface brand. Best known for innovative, tablet-like designs, Microsoft has expanded its Surface line over the years and now offers a full family of computers.
But with so many to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you? Just like a hammer has a purpose in a toolbox, so does each Surface device. Whether you’re plotting and planning your latest campaign with your team in the boardroom or working remotely from a coffee shop, there is a solution for you.
The adoption of mass remote working during the Coronavirus crisis has helped to keep workers safe but it has also introduced further security challenges for businesses. As a result, the extra hardware security enhancements packaged with the Microsoft Surface devices are sure to be welcomed by firms and employees alike.
Keep data secure from a Surface device’s first deployment to its last, no matter how many times and under what circumstances it changes hands.
Surface with Microsoft 365 provides unique protection at the front line. To provide a few illustrations of how devices may be vulnerable and how this new level of protection can support organisations and frontline workers. Here are a few commonplace examples:
The entire Surface family of devices are integrated seamlessly with the Windows 11 operating system and all the Microsoft applications your business depends on.
With OneDrive cloud storage, you have one place for your important documents, spreadsheets and other files. And OneDrive works across all your devices, so you’ll have everything ready to view and share from your Surface device or the OneDrive mobile app anytime. Keep your private and confidential files secured with OneDrive Personal Vault, an extra layer of protection for documents, photos, and videos for you and your family.
The backbone of any business. Microsoft 365 provides solutions to empower users to work together more securely to improve mission outcomes. With tools like Microsoft Teams, you can transform how you collaborate and coordinate efforts within and across departments.
The hub for teamwork in Microsoft 365, Teams helps users to:
As workers increasingly interact with workplace applications using mobile devices, tablets, or other mobile form factors, organisations face higher risks of these devices being lost, stolen, or temporarily misplaced.
Surface devices can better protect their devices and data against attacks or accidents. With security capabilities built into the firmware, operating system, and Microsoft 365, Microsoft has taken a comprehensive chip-to-cloud approach to help organisations deliver more protection for employees using Surface devices with Microsoft 365.
In addition to the ways that Surface with Microsoft 365 can help keep frontline devices secure, with cloud management and Windows Autopilot, Surface devices can also be shipped directly to a worker’s location without IT ever touching the device, saving time and effort. As frontline workers increasingly use devices in public spaces, the need to protect sensitive information at the front line has never been more important.
Do more with less – fewer resources, less complexity, less associated risk. Improve IT efficiency and reduce costs with remote Surface device deployment and management. 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 E5 see real impact.
Windows Autopilot is a cloud-based deployment technology in Windows 10. You can use Windows Autopilot to remotely deploy and configure devices in a zero-touch process right out of the box.
Traditionally, IT pros spend a lot of time building and customising images that will later be deployed to devices that already come with a perfectly good OS already installed on them. Windows Autopilot introduces a new zero-touch deployment approach using a collection of technologies to set up and configure Windows devices. This enables an IT department to configure/customise images with little to no infrastructure to manage and a process that is easy and simple. From the user’s perspective, it only takes a few simple steps to get Surface to a productive state. In fact, the only interaction required from the end-user is to connect to a network and verify their credentials. Everything after that is fully automated.
Windows Autopilot allows you to:
