With Microsoft moving away from DirectAccess in favor of Windows 10 Always On VPN, it's important for administrators to understand the similarities and differences between these two remote access technologies. Always On VPN is implemented and managed much differently than DirectAccess, which can present some unique challenges. It also offers many more features including support for non-domain joined devices and conditional access. In this session, I'll compare and contrast DirectAccess and Always On VPN and tell you everything you need to know about it, including the good, the bad, and the ugly!

You will learn:

  • Similarities and differences between DirectAccess and Always On VPN
  • Identify deployment requirements and how they map to Always On VPN configuration options
  • Understand Always On VPN limitations, missing features, and known issues
