MBAM is located on a server.   Benefit:  no time and effort will be wasted in in trying to locate encrypted drive needs to be managed.
  2. USMT,
    User State Migration Toolkit-->Lets users keep thier old computer settings.  USMT transfers user settings to new computer. New computer keep old computer settings.  Recreating .... transfer.  installs.  The end users settings are migrated.   Benefit: Reduces end-user downtime required to customize desktops and find missing files

  4. TPM
    Trusted Platform Module-->assists encryption software with encrypting a computers hard drive.   TPM stores access information separately from encrypted data.  Storing access information separately prevents unauthorized access.  microchip that stores security information needed to  access a computer data and/or information.  Benefit:  passwords, encryption keys and digital certificates are stored in chip and not in computers memory or hard drive.  Thus, an intruder will need physical access, special tools, and knowledge to access security info.  stores specific security information to the users computer.  designed to provide basic security-related functions, primarily involving encryption keys.
  5. MDOP
    Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack-->A suite of utilities used to make manageability and monitoring of enterprise desktops, emergency recovery, desktop virtualization and application virtualization easier. e.g. Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Tookit (DaRT), which has LockSmith of reseting a user account's password and Network adminstration's MBAM, Virtualization's App-V, etc.   Benefit:  Decreases downtime for end user; therefore, the end user can stay productive.
  6. App-V
    Application Virtualization--> allows clients to run applications locally via on demand streaming from a centralized server or standalone. Benefit:  decreased downtime for end users because applications will be streamed instead of manually being installed.
  7. Windows RT
    Windows RunTime, version of Windows 8 designed to run on mobile devices and utilizes tho ARM architecture.
  8. ARM architecture

  13. VHDX
    supports virtual hard disks as large as 64 TB[51]. VHDX supporting large disk size mean   database and Exchange mail servers can be converted to VHDX.  with power failure resiliency.  VHDX with power failure resiliency means decreased data corruption when a power failure occurs.  
  14. SSD
    solid-state drive operate faster than traditional hard drives.  SSD integrated circuits to access data.  Integrated circuits access data faster than traditional HD.  data storage device using integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistently. benefit:  SSD starts programs quickter; hence, the end user can continue to work with less down time associated with starting some software wait time associated some software programs.
