Kivuto Solutions Helps Academic Institutions Worldwide Manage and Deliver Microsoft Windows 10 Education

OTTAWA, Ontario, Aug. 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Support to deliver Windows 10 Education is available today from Kivuto. Eligible academic institutions worldwide can use Kivuto's web store platform to access the needed support to take advantage of Microsoft's new Windows student use benefit which allows students to upgrade to the full-featured version of Windows 10 Education at no cost on their PC. Students are then able to use it during school and beyond graduation on personal computers when the institution licenses Windows for their faculty and staff.

"With Kivuto's web store platform, we are able to simplify how institutions and their students worldwide access Windows 10 Education on behalf of Microsoft. Setup can be accomplished in two business days, at which point students will have instant access to their personal Windows 10 Education license," said Ryan Peatt, VP Sales and Operations for Kivuto. "Microsoft is clearly committed to education and we are proud to support them in their efforts."

The benefit is provided to any academic institution currently licensing Windows for all of their faculty and staff through an eligible Microsoft Academic Volume License Agreement. Eligible institutions receive a school-branded fulfillment center powered by Kivuto to easily manage and distribute this special Windows 10 Education offer at no additional cost. Kivuto's platform provides an automated solution for user verification, license management, secure distribution and reporting. Current customers of Kivuto can simply have this offer added to their existing deployment.

Windows 10 Education includes the features of Windows 10 Enterprise that provide advanced security, comprehensive device control and management to serve today's educational institution. Windows 10 Education includes ability to join Azure Active Directory, with single sign-on to cloud-hosted apps. Students can upgrade to Windows 10 Education from any other edition of Windows 10, as well as Windows 8.1, 7, Vista and XP provided their hardware is compatible.
