suraj.sun (1348507) writes "In addition to Monday's announcement of three Windows 8 SKUs, on Wednesday Microsoft introduced Windows 8 Enterprise, which will include a number of features not found in Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, the ARM-oriented Windows RT. These Enterprise edition exclusive features include the ability to create Windows To Go portable USB installations, DirectAccess VPN-less remote access to corporate networks, BrancheCache cached access to remote fileservers, AppLocker software restrictions, enhanced 3D, USB, and touch performance in VDI deployments, and the ability to side-load internal, Windows 8 Metro style apps.

To make full use of these features, Software Assurance usage rights are changing too. Any employee with a company PC with a Software Assurance license will also have a corresponding Windows To Go license, so that they can boot a secure, corporate-controlled environment on their home PCs. This can be extended further with Companion Device licenses (for extra cost), allowing employees to access corporate environments through either Windows To Go or VDI on up to four personally-owned systems."
