The US Government is slowly upgrading their systems to Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system. It appears that Windows 10 is the most prefered operating system for the United States government, and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will be pushing Windows 10 upgrade across their network, including TSA.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), plans to complete the upgrade by the end of the year. It appears that the department is upgrading to Windows 10 because of its security. The department believes Windows 10 would help the agency work more efficiently and securely.
TSA CIO Russell Roberts in a statement praised the Windows 10 operating system for its security and reliability.
“From a security perspective it gives us a lot of the opportunities to give us some of the hunt tools that we need to have out there for Windows 10. It should be a significant enhancement for the security. We are addressing the multiple tools to detect, monitor and respond and that all ties into Windows 10. That will help us with the new computers and all the end points out there,” TSA CIO Russell Robert said in a statement.
A report from FedTech claims that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) hopes to complete the migration to Windows 10 by December, and the agency is almost on track to finalize the process. It’s likely the upgrade will complete by end of this year.
Most of the DHS agencies will also upgrade to Windows 10, and they’re in the process to complete the transition this year. It’s a priority for all the agencies, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Emergency Management Agency.
Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system is growing slowly, and it’s quite obvious that the large-scale upgrade would contribute to the market share. In the UK, NHS is also embracing the platform, and it’s a living proof that Windows 10 is the most prefered OS for organizations.
Microsoft recently revealed that the adoption of the Windows 10 is improving at a moderate pace. Most recently, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 10 is running on 700 million active devices. Needless to say, the original plan to bring Windows 10 on 1 billion devices by the end of FY 2018 failed, but the company will achieve this goal by next year.
