The Windows 10 roadmap confirms that Enterprise Data Protection feature is available on Windows 10 Build 14295, but Microsoft never announced it.
When Microsoft launches a new feature, the company usually announces it through a changelog or an official blog post.
However, when the company pushed out Windows 10 preview build 14295 to Insiders, Redmond kept quiet the inclusion of the Enterprise Data Protection (EDP) capability.
That’s a surprise as Microsoft has been discussing this feature since way back in 2014 and sees it as one of the main security protection features for the Windows 10 platform.
Enterprise Data Protection is available on Build 14295, which is currently being tested by participants in the Windows Insider Program, a Windows 10 version that has actually been available since March 25.
Although, the feature was highlighted when the company unveiled its Windows 10 Roadmap this week, which allows users to see all features (existing and upcoming) available on the platform. EDP is a service that that delivers file-level encryption for enterprise data, while also providing apps that focus on preventing leaks and separating data.
“Enterprise data protection (EDP) helps to protect against this potential data leakage without otherwise interfering with the employee experience. EDP also helps to protect enterprise apps and data against accidental data leak on enterprise-owned devices and personal devices that employees bring to work without requiring changes to your environment or other apps.”
The roadmap confirms that Enterprise Data Protection is available as a preview in Build 14295 and that it is a Universal Windows services, which means it is available on PC, tablets, and mobile. It is expected the feature will be finalized and bundled into the Anniversary Update on Windows 10, which will be rolled out in June.
