For organizations with an investment in Microsoft's Azure Infrastructure–as–a–Service, you probably know that the current point–to–site remote access VPN solution provided natively by Microsoft leaves quite a bit to be desired. In this session you'll learn how to implement an alternative client–based remote access solution for access to Microsoft Azure–based infrastructure servers using Windows Server 2016 VPN.

You'll learn how to install and configure a remote access VPN server hosted in Microsoft Azure on Windows Server 2016. You'll also learn how to identify and implement secure VPN protocols, and how to extend remote access support to non–Microsoft platforms such as Mac and Linux.

You will learn:

  • How to install and configure Windows–based VPN server in Azure
  • How to configure VPN for Windows and other clients
  • How to perform security hardening to ensure authorized access
