With today's highly mobile workforce, providing secure access from any location is essential for maintaining productivity. DirectAccess is a remote access technology included with Windows Server 2016. It represents a paradigm shift in delivering remote access. DirectAccess provides always on, seamless and transparent remote access any time a client is connected to the Internet. With DirectAccess, users can access data and applications remotely as if they were in the office. Network communication is protected with IPsec encryption and authenticated with Kerberos, NTLM, and certificates. DirectAccess connectivity is bidirectional, which provides for compelling manage-out capabilities not available with tradition VPN solutions.

You will learn:

  • What's new with DirectAccess in Windows Server 2016
  • Best practices for security, scalability, and performance
  • How to implement, manage, and support DirectAccess in the enterprise
