Home Business IT Business Telecommunications WD goes Windows To Go with My Passport Enterprise

Most coverage of Windows To Go has revolved around thumb drives, but now WD is offering a portable hard drive certified for use with Windows To Go.

Windows To Go is a feature of Windows 8 Enterprise that allows a USB storage device as the boot device for practically any PC capable of running Windows 7 or 8. The idea is that employees can use such a device in conjunction with a borrowed or privately-owned computer yet run the organisation's approved environment.

Although thumb drives have been getting bigger, it can be difficult to squeeze in all the programs and that a particular user may need.

So WD has launched the $129 My Passport Enterprise, one of the first portable hard drives designed for use with Windows To Go.

"My Passport Enterprise is an excellent solution for users who need to use their Windows 8 corporate environment from any compatible computer," said Thomas Gallivan, vice president of marketing for WD's SMB solutions group.

"When businesses use My Passport with Windows To Go, employees have the ability to use their same settings and apps on multiple computers, at home or in-office. We see My Passport Enterprise helping increase employee productivity and efficiency for corporate customers while also providing the workplace flexibility that employees are looking for."
