With today's highly mobile workforce, secure access regardless of location is essential for maintaining productivity. DirectAccess, a remote access technology included with Windows Server 2012 R2, is a paradigm shift in the way remote access is delivered. DirectAccess provides always-on, seamless and transparent remote access any time a client is connected to the Internet. With DirectAccess, users access data and applications remotely as if they were in the office. Network communication is protected using IPsec encryption and authenticated using Kerberos, NTLM, and certificates. DirectAccess connectivity is bi-directional, enabling compelling manage-out capabilities not available with tradition VPN solutions.

You will learn:

  • What DirectAccess is and how it works
  • What platform technologies are required to support DirectAccess
  • How to install, configure, and manage DirectAccess
