One of the challenges of enabling work from anywhere is being able to make on-premises corporate IT resources accessible from the Internet while making sure that associated risk is controlled effectively. The Web Application Proxy, a new role service in Windows Server 2012 R2, in conjunction with Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), allows IT admins to enable secure access to web applications and services that sit on-premises from devices and clients outside the boundaries of the corporate network, which sometimes are not controlled by—or even belong to—corporate IT, and are not domain joined. Learn about the Web Application Proxy including how internal web resources are made available to the Internet, how it relies on AD FS for edge pre-authentication and authorization and how different types of resources and clients (e.g., browser-based, rich clients-based, Office) operate with the Web Application Proxy for access control. After this session you will know how it addresses your concerns of enabling productivity from anywhere in an easy and secure way.
