Work with business critical applications like Microsoft Office, Visual Studio, and QuickBooks seamlessly on your Mac. Ideal for any work environment from education to financial services, technology, consulting, or medical, Parallels Desktop Business Edition has productivity features for teams from 1-100 (or more!).

Get Started with Ease

  • Love Your Mac—Work in Windows. Use Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, Access, and hundreds of other Windows applications not available on the Mac while still enjoying all the features of your MacBook, iMac, Mac Mini, or MacPro.
  • Make Work Easier. Quickly switch between Mac and Windows, without rebooting. Seamlessly utilize Mac features inside Windows and leverage Windows' strengths on your Mac. More productivity and power for your team or organization.
  • Powerful Performance. Parallels Desktop optimizes your virtual machine settings for your primary usage such as productivity, design, or development—Parallels Desktop is ready to help you be effective in any work setting.

Work Like a Pro

  • Improved Battery Life. The “Travel Mode” temporarily shuts down resource intensive services in order to extend battery life when team members are on-the-go.
  • Visual Studio. With Parallels Desktop for Mac Business Edition, you retain all of the functionality of other Parallels Desktop editions, including the Visual Studio plugin, providing remote debugging in your virtual machines.
  • Cortana on Your Mac. Use Cortana even when Windows 10 is not the forefront application. Now everyone can have their own virtual assistant.

Manage and Deploy

  • License Management Portal. View vital information, such as license expirations, usage statistics, and real-time licensing activities to easily manage all of your deployed licenses. Administrators will be able to set up a new Parallels Desktop Business Edition account, with the ability to see, deploy, deactivate, and blacklist licenses as well as host name, user name, and serial numbers.
  • Advanced Security Controls. Parallels Desktop for Business provides best-in-class user performance while maintaining control at the IT level. Improve endpoint security with virtual machine lockdown and encryption, and maintain corporate compliance requirements via the elimination of third-party product and in-product notifications as well as individual user registration requirements.
  • Simplify Mass Deployment and Administration. Parallels Desktop for Business can be deployed through standard software deployment tools. Our package-builder application and detailed mass deployment guides help administrators set up hundreds or thousands of clients easily.

Ready for IT

Includes all the power features of the Pro Edition, plus advanced control and management features for IT.
