    Audience Profile

    Candidates for this exam secure Windows Server 2016 environments. Candidates are familiar with the methods and technologies used to harden server environments and secure virtual machine infrastructures using Shielded and encryption-supported virtual machines and Guarded Fabric.

    Candidates manage the protection of Active Directory and Identity infrastructures and manage privileged identities using Just in Time (JIT) and Just Enough Administration (JEA) approaches, as well as implement Privileged Access Workstations (PAWs) and secure servers using the Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS).


    Candidates should also be able to use threat detection solutions such as auditing access, implementing Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA), deploying Operations Management Suite (OMS) solutions, and identifying solutions for specific workloads.


    At Course Completion

    After completing this course, students will be able to:

    • Secure Windows Server.
    • Protect credentials and implement privileged access workstations.
    • Limit administrator rights with Just Enough Administration.
    • Manage privileged access.
    • Mitigate malware and threats.
    • Analyze activity with advanced auditing and log analytics.
    • Deploy and configure Advanced Threat Analytics and Microsoft Operations Management Suite.
    • Configure Guarded Fabric virtual machines (VMs).
    • Use the Security Compliance Toolkit (SCT) and containers to improve security.
    • Plan and protect data.
    • Optimize and secure file services.
    • Secure network traffic with firewalls and encryption.
    • Secure network traffic by using DNSSEC and Message Analyzer.


    The MCSE: Cloud Platform & Infrastructure Boot Camp 70-744 prepares you to pass the exam which focuses on how to secure Windows Server 2016 environments. It covers methods and technologies for hardening server environments and securing virtual machine infrastructures using Shielded and encryption-supported virtual machines and Guarded Fabric.

    In addition, we will cover the protection of Active Directory and identity infrastructure with the Enhanced Security Administrative Environment (ESAE) Administrative Forest design approach and the management of privileged identities using Just-in-Time (JIT) and Just-Enough-Administration (JEA) approaches, along with Privileged Access Workstations (PAWs) and Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS).

    The exam also covers threat detection solutions, such as auditing, implementing Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA), the understanding of Operations Management Suite (OMS) solutions, and workload-specific security including the use of Nano Server for particular server workloads.
