Unlocking Efficiency and Security: Introducing Microsoft Edge for Business

Aug 8, 2023 | Productivity Tools

If you’ve seen anything we’ve posted so far this month, you’ll know that I’m a recent convert to Microsoft Edge. Even in this current version, learning the ways that all the wild and wacky (okay they’re not that wacky) Microsoft Edge features can make me more productive has been both fun and interesting (clearly I’m fun at parties) – but now Microsoft is taking it a step further for all of you business users.

Introducing Microsoft Edge for Business!

Tailored for organizations and their teams, this browser is your ticket to a smarter browsing experience. In this post, I’m excited to introduce you to the world of Microsoft Edge for Business, walk you through its remarkable features, benefits, and get you pumped and ready for its launch (next week)!

Microsoft Edge for Business

What is Microsoft Edge for Business?

Microsoft Edge for Business is a browser experience that comes to life through your Azure Active Directory account. Sporting a unique icon and name, it’s designed to keep your work and personal browsing distinct. Currently in preview, Microsoft Edge for Business is compatible with Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, macOS, iOS, and Android devices.

Features That Make a Difference:

This new browser update takes security and productivity to new heights, and here’s how:

1. Security

Leveraging the formidable security technologies found in regular Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Edge for Business packs a punch with SmartScreen, Application Guard, and Password Monitor. It even supports Azure Active Directory Conditional Access policies, giving you the power to set access rules based on factors like user identity, device status, location, and app sensitivity.

2. Productivity

Seamless integration with Microsoft 365 apps like Outlook, Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Office Online elevates your workflow. Features like Collections, Vertical Tabs, Immersive Reader, and PDF annotations make organising information and enhancing your reading experience a breeze.

3. Management

Tailoring your browser settings is made easy with Microsoft Edge for Business. Use Group Policy or Microsoft Endpoint Manager for customisations and controls. Worried about staying up to date? The Microsoft Edge Update service ensures you have the latest security and feature updates.

4. Compatibility

Modern and legacy web applications can easily coexist thanks to Microsoft Edge for Business’s dual-engine architecture. This combines the Chromium-based rendering engine with the Internet Explorer mode. You’re also equipped with the Enterprise Site List Manager tool to manage which sites open in which browser mode.

Join the Conversation

Join the Microsoft Edge Insider community to share your insights with fellow users and developers, and help make Edge even better! Plus, you can offer feedback right from the browser itself – just click on the smiley face icon in the toolbar.

Microsoft Edge for Business isn’t just a browser; it’s your gateway to a secure, productive, and compatible web experience. Get ready to redefine how you work online. 

If you jump in and start using it next week, keep up posted on how you go!
