Windows To Go The bring your own device (BYOD) phenomenon causes headaches and frustration for hospital IT managers, since many consumer mobile devices don't provide the robust information security that's necessary in healthcare. Windows 8 Enterprise introduces a feature called Windows To Go. With Windows To Go, an admin can copy Windows 8 to a USB flash drive and then give that flash drive to a doctor or a nurse. The clinician can use that flash drive on a PC at home to boot up into a secure environment and access applications and files. Microsoft only supports USB flash drives certified for Windows To Go; most of them come as 32, 64, 128 or 256 GB.
