Win 11 Pro is built for business
Simple and flexible management - Win 11 Pro is user-friendly and flexible: connect to business resources with Azure Active Directory.
The most significant new Win 11 security feature involves a major improvement in authentication, based on biometric factors. Get essential business security features, built right into your device including BitLocker, which protects against loss of business information even when a device is lost or stolen.
While geared toward business customers, Win 11 Professional is a good operating system choice for home users with powerful computer systems. The design of Win 11 takes the best features from the two prior operating systems, Win 7 and Win 8, and incorporates them into an operating system that works similarly well on PCs and tablets. This professional version of Win 11 has many features that are not found on the Home version, including enterprise data protection, BitLocker and trusted boot for security, remote desktop, domain join and enterprise mode Internet Explorer for business use and the ability to join Azure Active Directory with a single sign-on to cloud-hosted applications.
How is an OEM licence different to a retail version of Windows?
Most people never buy a copy of Windows itself. They buy a PC that has Windows on it, and that’s the last they think of it.
But those who do want to purchase the operating system often opt to pick up a retail version. These are either sold in standard software packaging in shops, and thus called boxed copies, or are available online from Microsoft as a download and licence key
