Information exists almost everywhere in your organization; on servers, laptops, desktops, removable devices, and in emails. Users need to be able to access this information from everywhere, share it where appropriate, and achieve maximum productivity with the assets they have. To further complicate matters, the move to cloud computing means you need to be able to secure enterprise applications that no longer live in your datacenter.
To address these information needs and
challenges, organizations have to make fundamental shifts in how they approach identity and security. Windows Server 2012 helps you to accommodate these changes through significant improvements to Active Directory, the introduction of Dynamic Access Control, and exciting new capabilities and deployment options for DirectAccess. With the new capabilities in Windows Server 2012, you will be able to better manage and protect data access, simplify deployment and management of your identity infrastructure, and provide more secure access to data from virtually anywhere.
