In addition to attaching great importance to inter-device and cloud connectivity in the IoT (Internet of Things)—where all devices are connected to each other to create new value—Windows 10 IoT Enterprise provides an application execution environment with excellent development efficiency. It is also equipped with lockdown functions such as storage write protection (Unified Write Filter), popup and toast display restriction, and USB device restriction; as well as advanced security functions such as ID protection, Device Guard (code signature), and Control Flow Guard (memory protection). With Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, the BOX Computers have evolved into more powerful connected devices. We will accelerate the development of scenarios for the transition of all industrial systems and equipment, such as manufacturing equipment, machine equipment, industrial robots, and medical equipment, to the IoT.
The four new products have enhanced BIOS functions allowing system image backup and restore from the BIOS setup menu. In the event the OS does not start up, a backed up system image can easily be restored in a few steps.
