Boosting Productivity and Security: Introducing Edge for Business by Microsoft

August 7, 2023
There’s a new browser that keeps work and personal browsing totally separate. Here’s how it works and when it launches.

As the tech world keeps innovating, Microsoft never fails to amaze us with exciting updates and new releases. Their latest offering, Edge for Business, is no exception. This new browser is designed specifically with businesses in mind, providing enhanced security and productivity features. If you’ve ever wondered whether Microsoft employees ever sleep, you’re not alone, but it seems their sleepless efforts are delivering impressive results!

Bridging the Gap between Work and Personal Browsing

Edge for Business is set to become the go-to choice for businesses looking to optimize web browsing on their devices, whether managed or unmanaged. Its unique selling point is the ability to maintain a level of control over employees without compromising their privacy. This is especially important in today’s work environment, where many companies embrace Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies.

A Secure and Productive Solution

One of the standout features of Edge for Business is its seamless separation of work and personal browsing. The browser automatically creates dedicated windows for each, ensuring that work-related information and personal data remain separate and secure. By having its own set of favorites, caches, and storage locations, Edge for Business prevents any accidental sharing of personal content in a professional setting.

A Smart and User-Friendly Interface

Edge for Business goes a step further in enhancing productivity. Certain websites will open automatically in the relevant browser window. For example, Microsoft 365 will launch in your work browser, while a shopping site will open in your personal browser. This intelligent feature saves time and reduces the risk of mixing up work-related tasks with personal activities.

Testing and Future Developments

As with any new release, there’s an initial phase of testing, and Edge for Business is no exception. While it is available for testing, it’s recommended to wait for the official launch in the autumn to ensure the smoothest user experience. Microsoft has promised to add custom branding capabilities for businesses in the future, adding an exciting prospect for those eagerly awaiting this development.

Edge for Business by Microsoft is a game-changer for businesses seeking a secure and productive web browsing solution. With its automatic separation of work and personal browsing, employers can maintain control without intruding on employees’ privacy. As we anticipate the official launch, it’s clear that Edge for Business aims to bridge the gap between work and personal information on the same device, promising heightened productivity and security.

Are you excited to try out Edge for Business? Stay tuned for the autumn release, and in the meantime, if you need assistance in staying productive and secure, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Microsoft’s latest innovation is sure to revolutionize the way we browse the web in business settings.
