Edge for Business powers up Victoria, BC’s SMB landscape


Welcome to the future of business browsing, tailored specifically to the needs of small- and medium-sized businesses. We’re thrilled to introduce you to the latest addition to Microsoft’s arsenal, the Edge for Business browser. Taking a page from the legendary Bruce Springsteen’s songbook, this browser was “born to run” businesses efficiently and securely.

Edge for Business is a game-changer for businesses, particularly here in Victoria, BC, where the adoption of digital tools is growing exponentially. This browser can potentially become the primary choice for all your work-related web browsing needs, ensuring a delicate balance of oversight without breaching the sacred grounds of privacy. It’s ideal for businesses embracing the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) model, where the lines between professional and personal are often blurred.

A standout feature of Edge for Business is its ability to create an automatic divide between your work and personal browsing. Like a digital Superman transforming into Clark Kent, it maintains distinct identities within your browser windows. This includes separate favourites, caches and storage locations.

Microsoft 365, for instance, will conveniently open in your work browser, whereas personal sites will open in your personal browser. This thoughtful design ensures that your hilarious cat memes don’t accidentally end up in a professional presentation.

The Edge for Business browser is currently in its testing phase, so it’s best to wait for the official release in the fall before hitching your business to this star. Microsoft plans to roll out custom branding options soon, so your browser will represent your business’s unique style.

Edge for Business seeks to be the bridge between professional and personal activities on the same device, keeping information separate and secure. It’s an exciting leap towards enhanced productivity and security for businesses in Victoria, BC.

In the interim, if you need assistance with your business’s IT needs, we’re always here to lend a hand.
