For larger companies, the E5 version of Windows 10 Enterprise is the more compelling offer as it includes Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection that will help mitigate attacks on a corporate network and combat the rising threat of ransomware. As for a price, Microsoft is setting a $14 estimated retail price point for E5 but the price could vary by Cloud Service Provider depending on features included with the SKU.

One of the new features in Windows 10 is that you can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro to Windows 10 Enterprise E3 without rebooting. For those looking to upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise without the subscription fee, that option is still available through the tradition licensing channels.


Windows 10 Enterprise edition has a number of features that are unavailable in Windows 10 Pro. These are Windows 10 Enterprise features not found in Windows 10 Pro. Many of these features are security-related, whereas others enable finer-grained device management.

Feature Description

Credential Guard*

This feature uses virtualization-based security to help protect security secrets (for example, NTLM password hashes, Kerberos Ticket Granting Tickets) so that only privileged system software can access them. This helps prevent Pass-the-Hash or Pass-the-Ticket attacks.

Credential Guard has the following features:

  • Hardware-level security.  Credential Guard uses hardware platform security features (such as Secure Boot and virtualization) to help protect derived domain credentials and other secrets.

  • Virtualization-based security.  Windows services that access derived domain credentials and other secrets run in a virtualized, protected environment that is isolated.

  • Improved protection against persistent threats.  Credential Guard works with other technologies (e.g., Device Guard) to help provide further protection against attacks, no matter how persistent.

  • Improved manageability.  Credential Guard can be managed through Group Policy, Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), or Windows PowerShell.

* Credential Guard requires UEFI 2.3.1 or greater with Trusted Boot; Virtualization Extensions such as Intel VT-x, AMD-V, and SLAT must be enabled; x64 version of Windows; IOMMU, such as Intel VT-d, AMD-Vi; BIOS Lockdown; TPM 2.0 recommended for device health attestation (will use software if TPM 2.0 not present)

Device Guard

This feature is a combination of hardware and software security features that allows only trusted applications to run on a device. Even if an attacker manages to get control of the Windows kernel, he or she will be much less likely to run executable code. Device Guard can use virtualization-based security (VBS) in Windows 10 Enterprise edition to isolate the Code Integrity service from the Windows kernel itself. With VBS, even if malware gains access to the kernel, the effects can be severely limited, because the hypervisor can prevent the malware from executing code.

Device Guard does the following:

  • Helps protect against malware

  • Helps protect the Windows system core from vulnerability and zero-day exploits

  • Allows only trusted apps to run

AppLocker management 

This feature helps IT pros determine which applications and files users can run on a device (also known as “whitelisting”). The applications and files that can be managed include executable files, scripts, Windows Installer files, dynamic-link libraries (DLLs), packaged apps, and packaged app installers.

Application Virtualization (App-V)

This feature makes applications available to end users without installing the applications directly on users’ devices. App-V transforms applications into centrally managed services that are never installed and don't conflict with other applications. This feature also helps ensure that applications are kept current with the latest security updates.

User Experience Virtualization (UE-V)

With this feature, you can capture user-customized Windows and application settings and store them on a centrally managed network file share. When users log on, their personalized settings are applied to their work session, regardless of which device or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) sessions they log on to.

UE-V provides the ability to do the following:

  • Specify which application and Windows settings synchronize across user devices

  • Deliver the settings anytime and anywhere users work throughout the enterprise

  • Create custom templates for your third-party or line-of-business applications

  • Recover settings after hardware replacement or upgrade, or after re-imaging a virtual machine to its initial state

Managed User Experience

This feature helps customize and lock down a Windows device’s user interface to restrict it to a specific task. For example, you can configure a device for a controlled scenario such as a kiosk or classroom device. The user experience would be automatically reset once a user signs off. You can also restrict access to services including Cortana or the Windows Store, and manage Start layout options, such as:

  • Removing and preventing access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate commands

  • Removing Log Off (the User tile) from the Start menu

  • Removing frequent programs from the Start menu

  • Removing the All Programs list from the Start menu

  • Preventing users from customizing their Start screen

  • Forcing Start menu to be either full-screen size or menu size

  • Preventing changes to Taskbar and Start menu settings



  • Windows 10 Enterprise edition. Devices currently running Windows 10 Pro, version 1607 can get Windows 10 Enterprise Current Branch (CB) or Current Branch for Business (CBB). This benefit does not include Long Term Service Branch (LTSB).

  • Support from one to hundreds of users. Although the Windows 10 Enterprise E3 in CSP program does not have a limitation on the number of licenses an organization can have, the program is designed for small- and medium-sized organizations.

  • Deploy on up to five devices. For each user covered by the license, you can deploy Windows 10 Enterprise edition on up to five devices.

  • Roll back to Windows 10 Pro at any time. When a user’s subscription expires or is transferred to another user, the Windows 10 Enterprise device reverts seamlessly to Windows 10 Pro edition (after a grace period of up to 90 days).

  • Monthly, per-user pricing model. This makes Windows 10 Enterprise E3 affordable for any organization.

  • Move licenses between users. Licenses can be quickly and easily reallocated from one user to another user, allowing you to optimize your licensing investment against changing needs.
