What’s New in Windows 10 Pro Update for Small Business?

The latest Windows 10 Pro update targets small businesses’ needs – security and productivity enhancement. Now business owners and IT Pros can better manage devices in their organizations.


43% of data breaches targeted small businesses. As a result, data security is the top IT priority for small businesses and others. Being a small business owner yourself, you also want to ensure data security in your business.

Windows 10 Pro comes with the BitLocker feature that allows businesses to encrypt the data on their entire devices. And users will need a BitLocker key to unlock the data manually.

If users cannot unlock the drives normally, they will need to supply recovery passwords to restore access to BitLocker-protected drives.

A key rolling feature rotates recovery passwords on Mobile Device Management (MDM)-managed devices.

“Whenever Microsoft Intune/MDM tools or a recovery password is used to unlock a BitLocker-protected drive, it activates this feature. As a result, the recovery password will be better protected when users manually unlock a BitLocker drive,” reports Microsoft.

So, you can rest assured that your data will be safe in the event of accidental recovery password disclosure as part of manual BitLocker drive unlock by you.


Small businesses are always in search of ways to improve productivity. Windows 10 Pro has received many updates to enhance users’ productivity.

With the Windows 10 Pro November 2019 Update, your employees can now:

  • Create calendar events directly from their taskbars. To do so, they need to click on a date and write an event’s name. Then, they will be able to add time and location

  • Use the cloud-based clipboard to copy and paste content from one PC to another. And employees can sign in with Microsoft Accounts or Azure Active Directory. What’s more, your employees can pin the information that needs to be pasted multiple times
