This intermediate VPN and DirectAccess Solutions in Windows Server training prepares learners to balance the pros and cons of a VPN implementation or DirectAccess and implement the right solution for your mobile network.
A network doesn't really need VPN or DirectAccess solutions so long as there is absolutely no mobility on the network. If every last device on the network is a router, switch, printer, or desktop computer that doesn't leave the building, it's fine to never get around to choosing between VPN or DirectAccess.
But if there's even one aspect of mobility -- from smartphones to laptops or remote branches and work-from-home -- suddenly something needs to be done to keep the network secure as these mobile solutions access the network. This VPN and DirectAccess Solutions in Windows Server training shows what the differences are between using VPN or DirectAccess. Both keep users connected but have tradeoffs, and after this training you'll know how to configure and implement them both.
For supervisors, this Microsoft training can be used to onboard new systems administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Microsoft reference resource.
