Thirteen years’ experience of working with high profile clients, including NATO and the UK Government, have earned Bluescreen IT Microsoft Gold Certified Partner status – the highest accreditation the global tech giant can bestow on an independent company.

The three Windows 2012 courses (this course, Windows Server 2012 – Administering 70-411 and Windows Server 2012 – Installing and Configuring 70-410) collectively cover implementing, managing, maintaining, and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2012 environment.

This course also covers access and information provisioning, and protection technologies such as Dynamic Access Control (DAC), and Web Application Proxy integration with ADFS and Workplace Join.
