Windows 8 tablets to be secure for enterprises

Microsoft introduced their Surface tablet earlier this month, and OEMs will also be making tablets running Windows 8 and Windows RT. While Microsoft is obviously competing with the iPad and Android tablets that have been embraced by consumers, they are also focusing on making Windows 8 tablets the best choice for enterprises, and one aspect of that effort is to make it easy to connect securely to corporate networks. To that end, the TPM on Windows 8 tablets can emulate smartcard authentication, according to Doug Ingalls, the program manager for Security and Identity at Microsoft.
