The increasingly popular trends of 'BYOD (bring your own device) to work' and 'work from anywhere' expose corporate IT resources to greater risk. Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) technology on Windows Server is designed to enable end-users to securely access corporate resources from devices of their choice whilst connected from inside or outside your corporate network. Learn how to configure conditional access policies that leverage new AD FS capabilities such as network location awareness, device authentication and multiple-factor authentication in a flexible and intuitive manner. Learn how you can be in control of what authentication methods are made available to end-users, how to plug-in additional authentication providers and how to configure distinct policies governing extranet access. This session explores how AD FS technology helps you avoid 'bring your own disaster' scenarios by confidently securing your corporate resources.
In this session you will learn how to get more value from your Service Manager platform by using a little "magic" with PowerShell and SMA. Service Manager is a rich, extensible platform that can be customized to adapt to your organization's IT service management needs; however, creating even the simplest customizations can be a lot of work, so much so that many companies feel that they cannot do it themselves. Fortunately, there have been many technology improvements in the Microsoft stack that haven't fully been realized in Service Manager yet that can help! Windows PowerShell, Windows PowerShell Workflow, and Service Management Automation (SMA) are three technologies that can help remove a lot of the tedious work that is usually required when working with SCSM extensions. Come to this session to discover how you can leverage these technologies together to get more value from your Service Manager deployments today!
