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.
Through Microsoft's Rapid Deployment Program, Microsoft Premier and Consulting services had the opportunity to work with a Fortune 100 Company that "invents and manufactures technologies to address some of the world's toughest challenges initiated by revolutionary macrotrends in science, technology and society." A simple business opportunity expanded to see how this large, international customer can ingest millions of events per hour, exploit near-real-time analytics, and tackle true 'Big Data' problems successfully on our Azure data platform. We will provide a detailed walk through the architecture that was implemented, review some obstacles met by the various teams (client, product, consulting), and do a deep-dive into the various Azure components: DocumentDB, Stream Analytics, HDInsight, and Azure Data Factory.
