Since 2018, software giant Microsoft has been working diligently towards improving the delivery of Windows 10 updates, and the company feels that the time is right to release 19H2, a series of improvements and fixes that are particularly important to enterprise users. The first thing you should know about 19H2 is that business users will get a support lifecycle of 30 months; once installed, you will not have to worry about major updates until the year 2022, but you should expect minor fixes and security patches to be applied automatically.
A More Reliable & Feature Rich Windows Update
What you can expect from the 19H2 update is an improvement in the way Windows runs some software packages. The Intel Turbo Boost option for CPUs with multiple cores will be interpreted at the operating system level, which means that workloads can be balanced evenly. Another CPU improvement is related to ARM chips, which are now covered by the Windows Defender Credential Guard; this is good news for users of tablets and hybrid devices.
Windows 10 users who manage networks through Azure Active Directory will be able to roll their data encryption keys, thereby increasing their overall BitLocker security. If your network extends to mobile devices, a lost smartphone or tablet will not compromise other devices as long as new keys are frequently generated. Users of Microsoft Intune cloud management services will find it easier to run legacy software after the 19H2 update is applied. Windows Hello is not being improved this time around, but you can expect Microsoft to continue pushing for the elimination of passwords from now until 2022.
