MOC20744 - Securing Windows Server 2016

Linea corsi: Windows Server, Associate level: Windows Server 2016

About this course
This five-day,instructor-led course teaches IT professionals how they can enhance thesecurity of the IT infrastructure that they administer. This course begins byemphasizing the importance of assuming that network breaches have occurred already,and then teaches you how to protect administrative credentials and rights toensure that administrators can perform only the tasks that they need to, whenthey need to.
Thiscourse also details how you can mitigate malware threats, identify securityissues by using auditing and the Advanced Threat Analysis feature in WindowsServer 2016, secure your virtualization platform, and use new deploymentoptions, such as Nano server and containers to enhance security. The coursealso explains how you can help protect access to files by using encryption anddynamic access control, and how you can enhance your network’s security.

Audience profile
This course is for IT professionals who need to administer WindowsServer 2016 networks securely. These professionals typically work with networksthat are configured as Windows Server domain-based environments, with managedaccess to the Internet and cloud services.
