Parallels Desktop , the industry’s leading software for running Windows applications on a Mac, now includes a new version of the Parallels Desktop for developers, designers, and power users: Parallels Desktop for Mac Pro Edition. It also includes Parallels Desktop for Mac Business Edition, formerly known as Enterprise Edition. Here’s how the new editions break down.
Parallels Desktop for Mac Business Edition
Formerly known as Parallels Desktop for Mac, Enterprise Edition, Parallels Desktop for Mac Business Edition includes all Pro Edition features, offering IT admins the most effective means to enable their employees with Macs to run Windows applications.
The Business Edition builds on the Parallels Desktop’s award-winning solution by adding administrative features that enable IT departments to control and manage end-user virtual machines, as well as manage and administer licenses through the new Parallels License Management Portal. This exclusive feature provides IT administrators with vital information, such as license expirations, usage statistics, and real-time visibility into licensing activities, to easily manage all their deployed licenses. Parallels Desktop for Mac Business Edition also supports business cloud services including Box, Dropbox for Business and OneDrive® Business.
