Parallels® Desktop for Mac Business Edition is a fast, easy, and powerful application designed to run Windows on Mac for professionals, educators, teams, and businesses. Industry-leading performance enables teams to run Windows applications on an Intel or Apple M series Mac without compromise. Transparent licensing, multiple deployment options, and advanced administration deliver the most seamless and comprehensive solution between Mac and Windows.
Deliver Windows on Mac Across Your Entire Workforce
You can deliver access to business-critical applications on every Mac across your user base. Run business-critical applications without trade-offs—Microsoft Office, Visual Studio, Quicken and QuickBooks for Windows, Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge, SAP products, enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, Autodesk products, and more! Parallels is ideal for any professional environment—from education and financial services, to technology, consulting, and medical.
Deploy Windows with the same configuration across your entire population—quickly and effortlessly. Optional “Single Application” deployment mode enables Mac users to run a Windows application without an obvious delineation between the Mac OS and Parallels Desktop running as a virtual machine.
Use a single license for all installations or enrol new users via email without cumbersome key entry. Parallels Desktop Business Edition will automatically activate on end users’ Mac computers. Administrators can see, deploy, deactivate, and even blacklist licenses based on the Mac computer host name, username, and serial number.
Security and Data Protection
Encrypt virtual machines’ data, enforce external devices policies, restrict users from changing Parallels Desktop and VM settings, or create expiring VMs that lock once expired. It’s never been easier to retain complete control of your data.
Single Sign-on Authentication
Parallels can be activated by using a company identity provider. Enable employees to simply sign in and access Parallels with their corporate email and password.
Incredible performance for Apple M Series and Intel-based Mac devices
Parallels Desktop for Mac has been optimized to run natively on Apple M Series and Intel-based Mac devices, improving speed and performance.
Windows VM image link for mass downloads
Easily upload a pre-configured Windows VM image to a corporate cloud storage and use configuration profiles to allow selected employees to download it.
Streamlined package management
The universal binary in Parallels Desktop 18 enables users to create just one package for Intel and M Series Mac computers and leverage configuration profiles to deliver a Windows VM image.
"Compared with competing products, Parallels Desktop is user-friendly, integrated into macOS in a better way, and easier to configure." — Jakob Tewes, Head of Technical Infrastructure Department, MaibornWolff
