Discover how you can enhance your network’s security.

GK# 5575

Course Overview

TOP

In this course, you will learn how to enhance the security of the IT infrastructure that you administer. This course begins by emphasizing the importance of assuming that network breaches have occurred already, and then teaches you how to protect administrative credentials and rights to help ensure that administrators can perform only the tasks they need to, when they need to.

This course explains how you can use auditing and the Advanced Threat Analysis feature in Windows Server 2016 to identify security issues. You will also learn how to mitigate malware threats, secure your virtualization platform, and use deployment options such as Nano server and containers to enhance security. The course also explains how you can help protect access to files by using encryption and dynamic access control, and how you can enhance your network’s security.

This course incorporates material from the Official Microsoft Learning Product 20744: and it can assist you in your preparation for Exam 70-744: Securing Windows Server 2016.
