Not to be left out of the current wave in the ongoing bring your own device (BYOD) mania, Windows 8 supports “Windows To Go.” Administrators can now build a corporate image of Windows 8 that can be provisioned on a 32 GB USB stick. The Windows To Go USB stick can then be booted from any x64 PC at any location, whether the PC is connected to the enterprise network or not. Again, this is a corporate-defined image that can include the full complement of Windows 8 security features so the administrator effectively has full control of the user's USB-booted endpoint device.

While not an all-encompassing review of the security features available in Windows 8, in this slideshow, Paul Henry, security and forensic analyst at Lumension, takes a quick look at some of the more noteworthy capabilities in this latest iteration from Microsoft.
