Windows on ARMSOFTWARE HOUSE Microsoft has given developers a preview of the enterprise features of Windows 8 RT, the ARM-based version of its upcoming Windows 8 operating system.

At the firm's Tech Ed Europe event in Amsterdam attended by The INQUIRER this week, the firm gave a sneak peek at capabilities that will provide enterprise class security on ARM-based tablets.

It also disclosed some details of how organisations will be able to manage employees bringing their own Windows RT tablets into the workplace as part of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend.

Windows RT has been designed to be virtually identical to Windows 8 for Intel-based systems, but because it runs on ARM-based devices it will not support existing Windows PC applications, only those designed for Microsoft's new Metro environment.
