Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2: Server Infrastructure – Implement NPS and WAP

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


You can protect private system resources by deploying the Network Policy Server as a client health policy checking and remediation service using Network Access Policy (NAP). This allows the system administration to use numerous techniques to check client health at the various network access points and to allow the NPS service to arbitrate on client computer access to the private network. Endpoint Protection is a complementary technology (service role) of the System Center 2012 utility, which monitors client computers for malware status, and client malware prevention readiness by maintaining the up-to-date status of the malware service. In a world where network administrators are under increased pressure to deliver secure internal application access across any Internet connection to any device, Microsoft offers the Web Application Proxy as a solution. With WAP, internal applications can be delivered securely to remote clients with or without another remote access solution, like DirectAccess or VPN.
This course covers system protection using Network Access protection, and details System Center Endpoint Protection. To complete the course using Microsoft Web Application Proxy as a solution to deliver secure internal application access across any internet connection to any device is explained.
