Your probably exciting to meet the new and improved Windows Server 2012R2 believe me so am i,
today i will update you on a few improvements in Active Directory 2012 R2.
So lets get started :
One of the most prevalent IT industry trends at the moment is the proliferation of consumer devices in the workplace. Employees and partners want to access protected corporate data from their personal devices, from checking email to the consumption of advanced business applications. IT administrators in organizations, while wanting to enable this level of productivity, would like to continue to ensure that they can manage risk and govern the use of corporate resources.
- IT administrators can allow devices to be associated with the company’s Active Directory and use this association as a seamless second factor authentication.
- Single sign-on (SSO) from devices that are associated with the company’s Active Directory
- Enable users to connect to applications and services from anywhere with Web Application Proxy
- Manage the risk of users working from anywhere, accessing protected data from their devices, with Multi-factor Access Control and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Not that much to improve from the previous 2012 but SSO from devices that are associated with the company’s Active Directory that my favorite 🙂
