`Windows 7 Professional builds on the foundation of Windows Vista by adding more flexibility in securing PCs and data.
Encrypting File System
Protect your files from unwanted access by storing them on your hard disk in an encrypted format.
Businesses using Windows 7 can worry less about the loss of sensitive data because they can protect internal PC hard disks with BitLocker and use BitLocker To Go to encrypt external thumb drives and hard disks.
Enterprises that demand the highest levels of compliance can use AppLocker to dictate which applications are allowed to run on user PCs, providing yet another way to limit the risk of malicious software.
Multiple Active Firewall Profiles
Windows 7 supports multiple active firewall policies, which allows user PCs to obtain and apply domain firewall profile information regardless of other networks that may be active on the PC.
VPN Reconnect While many organizations can use DirectAccess as their only way to connect remotely, some may still need to use VPN technology. By using Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) technology to provide consistent VPN connectivity, it automatically reestablishes a VPN when users temporarily lose their Internet connections.
Protect Workers and InfrastructurePeople who run unauthorized software often experience a higher incidence of malware infections and generate more help desk calls. We understand how difficult it can be for IT departments to make sure that user PCs are running only approved, licensed software. With Windows 7, you?ll get even greater control over which applications can run on PCs
