Western Digital has introduced My Passport Enterprise, one of the industry’s first portable hard drives designed specifically for use with Microsoft Corp.’s Windows To Go, which enables corporate customers to provision a fully featured Windows 8 workspace on a bootable USB drive.

“My Passport Enterprise is an excellent solution for users who need to use their Windows 8 corporate environment from any compatible computer,” said Thomas Gallivan, vice president of marketing for WD's SMB solutions group.

My Passport Enterprise includes 500GB of storage space, while still maintaining a sleek and compact design for maximum portability. The capacity and portability allows users to easily carry all their data and settings so they can quickly boot and run their personalized Windows 8 system on any compatible PC in the office, at home or on the go. Additionally, setup is fast and easy with the WD Compass utility included with My Passport Enterprise.

Additionally, with security a top priority for corporate customers, My Passport Enterprise supports of BitLocker full disk encryption. Data on the My Passport Enterprise separates itself from the host PC’s internal hard drive to avoid any accidental data disclosure. Security is further enforced as My Passport Enterprise leaves no traces of data on the host computer.

“The way we work has radically shifted in the past several years, from bring-your-own-device trends to an increasingly mobile workforce, and we are delighted to work with WD to help deliver the Windows To Go experience on My Passport Enterprise,” said Karri Alexion-Tiernan director of product marketing at Windows enterprise division of Microsoft.

My Passport Enterprise comes with a two year limited warranty and will be available October 26th at authorized Microsoft resellers and online for $119.99.
