Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is planning to upgrade its 4 million PCs to Windows 10. Now, DoD’s chief information officer Terry Halvorsen said he wants the department’s employees to also use Windows 10 at home.
Halvorsen said his recommendation is based on the security features of Windows 10 as well as Microsoft’s usage of the Azure cloud platform. He added that the department has never before used an operating system that came close to “this much security baked in from the beginning.”
“If you’re using a computer at home and you’re not on Windows 10, you’re doing yourself an injustice – you ought to be moving to Windows 10,” added Halvorsen.
