Officially, Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016 is a specialized edition of Windows 10 Enterprise that promises the longest intervals between feature upgrades of any version of the operating system.

The Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016 long-term servicing branch (LTSB) of Configuration Manager is a distinct branch that's designed as an install option available to all customers. However, it's the only option for customers who let lapse their Software Assurance (SA) or equivalent subscription rights for Configuration Manager.

Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016 does receive the usual monthly security updates. The twice-annual feature upgrades delivered to other channels will not be offered to LTSB systems.

Microsoft upgrades the Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB "build" every two to three years. Those upgrades, however, are optional, or at least optional to some degree (more on that later).

Each Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB build is supported with security updates for a decade, the same 10-year lifespan Microsoft has designated and maintained for ages. The decade is split into two equal halves: "Mainstream" support for the first five years, "Extended" for the second. For Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB, Mainstream support ends in October 2021 and Extended stops in October 2026.

Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB runs on Specialized systems - such as PCs that control medical equipment, point-of-sale systems, and ATMs which often require a longer servicing option because of their purpose. These devices typically perform a single important task and it's more important that these devices be kept as stable and secure as possible than up to date with user interface changes.

As a general guideline, a PC with Microsoft Office installed is a general-purpose device, typically used by an information worker, and therefore it is better suited for the [non-LTSB servicing channels.

Features

Microsoft Intune

Microsoft Intune supports Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016 and later. This includes support for features such as Windows Autopilot. However, note that Windows Update for Business (WUfB) does not currently support any LTSB releases, therefore you should use WSUS or Configuration Manager for patching.

Security

This version of Windows 10 includes security improvements for threat protection, information protection, and identity protection.

Threat protection and Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

The Microsoft Defender for Endpoint platform includes the security pillars shown in the following diagram. In this version of Windows, Defender for Endpoint includes powerful analytics, security stack integration, and centralized management for better detection, prevention, investigation, response, and management.

Attack surface reduction

Attack surface reduction includes host-based intrusion prevention systems such as controlled folder access. This feature can help prevent ransomware and other destructive malware from changing your personal files. 

Windows Defender Firewall

Windows Defender Firewall now supports Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) processes. You can add specific rules for a WSL process just as you would for any Windows process. Also, Windows Defender Firewall now supports notifications for WSL processes.

Endpoint detection and response

Endpoint detection and response is improved. Enterprise customers can now take advantage of the entire Windows security stack with Microsoft Defender Antivirus detections and Device Guard blocks being surfaced in the Microsoft Defender for Endpoint portal.

Windows Information Protection

Windows Information Protection is now designed to work with Microsoft Office and Azure Information Protection. For more information, see Deploying and managing Windows Information Protection (WIP) with Azure Information Protection.

BitLocker

The minimum PIN length is being changed from 6 to 4, with a default of 6. 

Identity protection

Improvements that have been added are to Windows Hello for Business and Credential Guard.

Windows Hello for Business

New features in Windows Hello enable a better device lock experience, using multifactor unlock with new location and user proximity signals. Using Bluetooth signals, you can configure your Windows 10 device to automatically lock when you walk away from it, or to prevent others from accessing the device when you are not present.
