BLOG: Windows 8.1: The key security improvements

J. Peter Bruzzese | Oct. 24, 2013
Although users may prefer the comfort of Windows 7, Windows 8.1's security advantages should pique IT's interest

Windows 8.1 introduces Remote Data Removal, which allows organizations to remove company data (email, attachments, and orporate data that came from Work Folders) without completely wiping the personal user's data in the process. Note that this capability requires Windows Server 2012 R2 to support Work Place Join and Work Folders.

Security is always going to be a concern for both the home and corporate user, even more so when you consider many users work from home PCs and other personal devices. As an IT admin looking to ensure the greatest level of security, you should give serious consideration to adopting Windows 8.1 instead of Windows 7.
