For IT professionals, there is an opportunity for government IT to be instrumental in creating a modern, agile, and efficient government agency. However, IT professionals have great responsibility to support agency-wide success and meet federally mandated initiatives. With the launch of Windows 8, government agencies are even better positioned to be more agile, mobile and secure, with a platform re-imagined for today’s government needs.

In the latest version of Windows everything from the system architecture to the user interface, has been transformed. This report highlights one of the latest features of Windows 8, Windows To Go. Windows To Go allows the Windows 8 environment to be carried on an encrypted USB key, which can be plugged into any PC to access organizational information and resources.

This report highlights how Windows To Go helps facilitate agency continuity of operations initiatives, opens new opportunities for government agencies and retains security in a mobile environment to accommodate an increasingly mobile workforce.
