Enterprise State Roaming

Enterprise State Roaming

Windows 10 allows Azure Active Directory users to synchronize their security settings and application parameter data directly in the cloud. This reduces the time required for reconfiguration when using a new device.

  • Company data : Company data is not stored in the cloud. Data security is therefore ensured.
  • Enhanced security : Data stored in the cloud is automatically encrypted before leaving the workstation. It will remain encrypted in the cloud.

What parameter is being synchronized

  • Theme : Desktop themes and taskbar settings
  • Internet Explorer : Recently opened tabs and favorites
  • Microsoft Edge : Favorites
  • Password : Internet password, wifi profiles, etc.
  • Language preferences : Settings for keyboard layouts, date and time, etc.
