IT Networking Training Catalog – 70-744 – Securing Windows Server 2016 (MCSE) Series!

$75.00Add to cart

Overview: This training series focuses on how to secure Windows Server 2016 environments. It covers methods and technologies for hardening server environments and securing virtual machine infrastructures using Shielded and encryption-supported virtual machines and Guarded Fabric. In addition, the series covers the protection of Active Directory and identity infrastructure with the Enhanced Security Administrative Environment (ESAE) Administrative Forest design approach and the management of privileged identities using Just-in-Time (JIT) and Just-Enough-Administration (JEA) approaches, along with Privileged Access Workstations (PAWs) and Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS). The series also covers threat detection solutions, such as auditing, implementing Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA), the understanding of Operations Management Suite (OMS) solutions, and workload-specific security including the use of Nano Server for particular server workloads.

This series, along with the 70-741 and 70-742 series, will prepare you to take the MCSA: Windows Server 2016 exams. Taking the 70-744 series will then prepare you to take the MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure exams.
