Windows 10 is an operating system from the Windows family, developed and maintained by Microsoft. It is designed to work on modern personal computers and it’s available in both 32 and 64-bit versions. Windows 10 was released in July 2015 as a successor to the previous version of the system – Windows 8.1 – and boasts multiple new features users long wanted to see. It also fixed numerous problems and bugs of its predecessor, refreshed the user interface, and incorporated better security measures.
The professional version of the Windows 10 operating system comes with additional features aimed at business consumers. These include BitLocker encryption, group policies, dynamic provisioning, kiosk mode, Hyper-V, Windows Sandbox, Active Directory support, among others.
BitLocker is a feature that allows encrypting the entire drive using either a 128 or 256-bit AES algorithm in order to protect your data in case of losing access to your PC. Activating BitLocker requires you to create a password, which will be used to access the computer. From now on only the one who knows this password will be able to decrypt stored files. It’s the perfect way to defend against thieves, who otherwise could steal your documents and use gathered data to access your banking or social media accounts.
