I'm Gunjan Jain, one of the PMs in the Microsoft's Windows Server and Services team. Today, I am thrilled to announce the
of Azure AD
Enterprise State Roaming
for Windows 10. We announced the public preview of this service about four months ago in this
. Since then we have continued to work closely with the Azure AD and Windows client teams to incorporate your feedback and prepare the service for today's announcement.
Enterprise State Roaming service is part of Azure AD Premium. With Enterprise State Roaming, customers benefit from enhanced security and control of the OS and app state data that are roamed between enterprise owned devices. All synced data is encrypted before leaving the device and backed by an enterprise compliant storage service in the Microsoft Azure cloud. This enables enterprises to maintain control over their data. With Enterprise State Roaming, users no longer have to use consumer Microsoft accounts to roam settings between work-owned devices, and their data is no longer stored in the personal OneDrive cloud.
provides more details about the benefits, configuration, and deployment of the Enterprise State Roaming. I encourage you to watch the below video demo of Enterprise State Roaming on Azure AD Channel 9 for step by step configuration instructions and to see Enterprise Roaming Service in action.
At the time of the public preview, this service was available only in US and Europe regions. Several of you asked us when we would make it available in more regions around the world. Well, today we are pleased to announce that Enterprise State Roaming service is now available in multiple Azure regions to service all our Azure AD customers globally. You can find the updated list of the Enterprise State Roaming available regions on the
Azure Services by Regions
page under Azure Active Directory.
