Today’s organizations need to give workers access to data and information — across varied networks and devices — while still keeping costs down. Innovations that meet these needs — such as virtualization and cloud-based applications — help organizations maximize existing infrastructure investments, while exploring new services, improving management, and increasing availability.
New and enhanced capabilities in Windows Server 2012 help you meet these challenges by making it easier and less costly to ensure secure access to valuable digital assets and comply with regulations. These capabilities include:

- Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). Improvements to AD DS installation and deployment and AD Federation Services (AD FS) as a server role.
- Remote Desktop Services (RDS). Enhancements with Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and easier deployment of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions.
- DirectAccess for Remote Access. Helps IT offer users seamless, more secure access to corporate data from virtually any Internet connection.
- Dynamic Access Control. Used for compliance and data leakage prevention to enable Data Governance.

After completing this Windows Server 2012 training course— through a series of videos, virtual labs, and whitepapers — you will have a detailed understanding of how Windows Server 2012 enables you to give workers access to data and information across varied networks, devices, and applications  —  and do it in an easier, more cost effective and more secure fashion.
