Windows Embedded provides companies with comprehensive, efficient platforms and utilities which help them expand operations and intelligence. This software also allows companies to use their current infrastructure and industrial assets, develop them and exchange data with back-end systems in a secure environment.

Especially designed for embedded systems, it targets a wide market, ranging from small-footprint devices to point-of-sale (POS) such as kioks.

Based on the Windows operating system, Windows Embedded features great technologies and options that give enterprises and device manufacturers the possibility of choosing which capabilities will be part of their intelligent system solutions.

It provides the same security features and functionality as Windows 8, but in a more modular form that addresses your business needs. In this manner, you can keep your customers engaged and employees informed with the latest news.

Furthermore, by using Windows Embedded you are able to integrate a device solution into your company’s network effortlessly and bypass the additional overhead with compatible Microsoft technologies.

Offering the same multi-touch experience as Windows 8, this componentized version aids to standardize all your enterprise devices, thus lowering your cost of ownership by integrating new device experiences with other assets.

Because it works with Access & Identity management solutions as well, here referring to Active Directory and Microsoft System Center, Windows Embedded enables you to deploy, manage and update devices in an intuitive manner. You can connect edge devices to the corporate network and let your employees access data through compatibility with SQL Azure and Azure Storage.

Considering all of the above, Windows Embedded proves to be a steady solution that helps you to customize the entire look and feel of your devices, protect them from malware and unauthorized attempts using features such as Bitlocker, Windows Defender and other security measures, as well as create a system that generates new levels of actionable business insight.
