Performance benefits

What are the advantages of getting Windows 11 Professional instead of Windows 11 Home?

You get all the features and functions in Windows 11 Home plus these additional features and functions.

Additional security

Bitlocker device encryption

If your device is lost or stolen, BitLocker and BitLocker To Go put everything on lockdown, so no one else can access your systems or data.

Integrated with Microsoft Information Protection

Protect your information from accidental or intentional data leaks.

(Windows Information Protection requires either MDM or System Center Configuration Manager to manage settings. Sold separately.)

Remote Deployment and Compliance

Deploy, secure, and manage remote PCs through the cloud, in compliance with your company’s policies.

Windows Hello for Business

Windows Hello capabilities plus passwordless sign-in to Windows and Azure.

(Requires specialized hardware, including fingerprint reader, illuminated IT sensor or other biometric sensors and capable devices.)

Windows Information Protection (WIP)

WIP helps to protect against potential data leakage without otherwise interfering with the employee experience. WIP also helps to protect enterprise apps and data against accidental data leaks on enterprise-owned devices and personal devices that employees bring to work, without requiring changes to your environment or other apps.

(WIP requires either Mobile Device Management (MDM) or System Center Configuration Manager to manage settings.)

Windows Sandbox

Windows Sandbox is an isolated, temporary desktop environment where you can run untrusted software without fear of infecting your PC.

Additional network functions and features

Windows 11 Home is not designed to work in a server network environment. Windows 11 Home will only work in a  peer-to-peer network environment. A peer-to-peer network does not have a server. So Windows 11 Home has very limited network features. 

In fact with Windows 11 Home all you get is peer-to-peer transfer of updates and express updates (which eases the network impact of monthly quality updates).

Here are the additional network functions and features you get with Windows 11 Professional.

Assigned Access

With Assigned Access, Windows 11 Pro devices run different applications depending on the user and keep individual identities separate and secured.

Azure Active Directory Join

Suitable for both cloud-only and hybrid organisations.

(Requires Azure AD. Sold separately. Requires Windows Server.)

Hybrid Azure Active Directory Join

Allows on-premises Active Directory enrolled devices to be joined to Azure Active Directory.

(Requires Azure AD. Sold separately. Requires Windows Server.)

Cloud managed updates

Approve, schedule and monitor any Windows Update content through the cloud, including security updates, drivers and firmware.

Enterprise State Roaming with Azure

Available to any organisation with an Azure AD Premium or Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) license, Enterprise State Roaming provides users with a unified experience across their Windows devices and reduces the time needed for configuring a new device.

(Separate subscription for Azure Active Directory Premium required.)

eSIM Enterprise Solutions

eSIMS10 are embedded SIM cards that let you connect your PC to cellular networks when you don’t have access to WI-FI or when available networks are unsecured.

Group Policy

Manage PCs, user accounts and groups, and get easy access to files and printers when you pair Windows 11 Pro with Windows Server (sold separately).

You can even define specific security and networking policies for your users and devices.

Kiosk mode setup

Configure a device in kiosk mode in a very simple way. You can do this locally on the device or remotely using Mobile Device Management.

Mobile Application Management

Employees can use their personal devices to access work apps and content without IT help.

Mobile device management

Windows 11 mobile device management (MDM) provides an alternative to traditional PC management processes: you can transition to cloud-based management at your own pace.

(MDM requires an MDM product such as Microsoft Intune or other 3rd-party solutions, which are sold separately.)

Seamless local and virtual apps

Virtual apps will behave like local apps with Windows 11 and Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD).

(This functionality requires the user of the devices to have an AVD licence. Learn more about AVD licensing requirements at the Windows Virtual Desktop Pricing page. Azure Active Directory and internet connection required, which are sold separately.)

Support for Active Directory

Domain Join + Group Policy: IT staff can easily manage PCs, user accounts and groups, security policies, and get easy access to files and printers when you pair Windows 11 Pro with Windows Server, which is sold separately.

You can even define specific security and networking policies for your users and devices.

Support for Azure Active Directory

Employees can use a single login across Windows 11, Microsoft 365 and other Microsoft services, making logons and passwords easier to manage. The shared logon works on PCs, tablets and phones with minimal IT involvement.

(Microsoft 365 is sold separately.)

Windows Autopilot

New devices can easily be set up following a cloud powered pre-configured process. Learn more

(Requires Azure AD for automatic MDM enrolment. Requires Microsoft Intune for enrolment status page. Sold separately.)

Windows Server Update Service (WSUS)

Enables IT admins to deploy the latest Microsoft product updates.

Windows Update for Business

Windows Update for Business can help businesses reduce management costs, provide control over update deployments, enable more efficient delivery of updates, and provide access to the latest innovations from Microsoft.

Additional built-in tools and features

OneDrive for Business

OneDrive for Business takes secure sync and collaboration to the next level through seamless synchronisation with SharePoint and Teams.

Remote Desktop

Remote desktop lets you unlock and access your files, folders and apps just the way you left them—anywhere and from virtually any device.

(Remote Desktop app is available for Windows, iOS, Android and Mac. Must leave remote Windows 11 device on in order to connect and log in remotely.)
