    Windows understands that it's the 21st century, and multitasking is a way of life. Cell phones, laptops and tablets and their ever-expanding networks, apps and programs make it so we can almost always be doing at least two things at once. You send an e-mail while you're out to lunch. You call your clients while you're finishing up that presentation. You send your brother a birthday e-card while you're walking to your next appointment. Mobile technology allows us to stay connected to our work, and creates an ever-expanding versatile business setting. With that in mind, Windows 8.1 has been designed to bring you one operating system that can handle all of life's demands — no matter where you are. Whether you're in the office, at home or on the go, Windows 8.1 is there to deliver.

    Windows 8.1 Professional enhances your ability to stay connected to colleagues or clients from anywhere, anytime. Advanced Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) features allow you to work in versatile settings, while still supporting mobile enhancements, such as wide-range and automatically triggered VPN and mobile broadband and tethering, and updated interface features, such as resizable snap view windows and improved mouse-and-keyboard accessible start screens. Access corporate resources and sync data from any device thanks to Workplace Join and Work Folders. Share your projects easily with NFC Tap-to-pair Printing, Wi-Fi Direct printing and Miracast Wireless Display functionality. Administrators can manage a company's devices with Windows Intune management service. Shadow active sessions in an RDSH server, support a VDI environment with more flexible storage options and enhanced RemoteApp behavior, and designate classes of devices with an OMA-DM API agent. Best of all, feel confident that your business data and programs are protected by the newest security features, including remote business data removal, device lockdown, malware resistance, device encryption and improved biometric identity authenticating features, such as optimized fingerprint based security. Windows 8.1 Pro is making it easier than ever to work from, and manage, mobile devices in order to support your increasingly remote and dynamic business environment. Tack on a modern user interface, and you've got Windows 8.1.
