Microsoft today announced changes to its Windows 10 offerings for enterprises.
Microsoft is renaming Windows 10 Enterprise to Windows 10 Enterprise E3.
But also the company announced that later this summer it will come out with a new version of Windows 10 called Windows 10 Enterprise E5.The move to establish a new top-of-the-line edition of Windows 10 will bring the major operating system from Microsoft in line with Office 365, which has E3 and E5 versions, along with ProPlus and E1 versions.
