|Licensing the Windows To Go Feature of Windows 8|
|Tuesday, 21 August 2012|
A new Windows 8 feature called Windows To Go (WTG) allows users to boot a computer from a Windows 8 image on a USB drive. WTG is attractive to organizations because users who need to connect to the organization's network from an unmanaged computer can do so using a corporate-sanctioned instance of Windows 8 Enterprise edition. However, use of WTG generally requires devices to have Software Assurance (SA) on Windows, an Intune subscription, or a Virtual Device Access (VDA) subscription, and customers must be careful to properly license both the creation and use of the WTG image on USB drives.
