Microsoft introduces the HoloLens Commercial Suite

Microsoft today released the Windows Holographic Anniversary Update, bringing new features to the HoloLens Development Edition. Part of that is new enterprise features, namely the HoloLens Commercial Suite.

The Suite "includes the Development Edition hardware as well as enterprise features for added security and device management." Presumably, this is the Windows Holographic Enterprise SKU that we heard about a few months ago.

Here's what is offered in the HoloLens Commercial Suite:

  • Kiosk mode. With HoloLens kiosk mode, you can limit which apps to run to enable demo or showcase experiences.

  • Mobile Device Management (MDM) for HoloLens. Your IT department can manage multiple HoloLens devices simultaneously using solutions like Microsoft InTune. You will be able to manage settings, select apps to install and set security configurations tailored to your organization’s need.

  • Identity. Azure Active Directory & next generation credentials with pin unlock.

  • Windows Update for Business. Controlled operating system updates to devices and support for long term servicing branch.

  • Data security. BitLocker data encryption and secure boot is enabled on HoloLens to provide the same level of security protection as any other Windows device.

  • Work access. Anyone in your organization can remotely connect to the corporate network through a virtual private network on a HoloLens. HoloLens can also access Wi-Fi networks that require credentials.

  • Windows Store for Business. Your IT department can also set up an enterprise private store, containing only your company’s apps for your specific HoloLens usage. Securely distribute your enterprise software to selected group of enterprise users.

The HoloLens Commercial Suite will also contain features like Bitlocker device encryption, cert-based corporate Wi-Fi access, VPNs, Windows Update for Business, and support for the Long Term Servicing Branch. If you want to purchase the Commercial Suite for your business, you can contact your local Microsoft account manager.
