Microsoft previews new enterprise-only telemetry option for Windows 10
Microsoft last week launched a preview of a new enterprise-only option that blocks Windows’ telemetry from reaching Redmond’s servers.
The option wasn’t given an official label in the July 23 announcement, but at the sign-up site was defined as “The Data Processor Service for Windows Enterprise” – a mouthful even for Microsoft, known for interminable titling.
Marisa Rogers, the privacy officer responsible for Windows and Microsoft’s browsers, pointed out that enterprises and other organizations – universities, for the most part – now have two choices when it comes to what their PCs report to Redmond. “Enterprise customers had two options in managing their Windows 10 diagnostic data: 1) allow Microsoft to be the controller of that data … or 2) turn off diagnostic data flows altogether.”
