Windows Server 2008

Identity and Access Management

The backbone of any IT enterprise is identity management-ensuring the right person or application can access the data they need, while protecting it. Windows Server 2008 Identity and Access (IDA) Management solutions provide further enhancements to the directory services core, as well as associated services, such as Rights Management and Certificates. Windows Server Identity and Management solutions have been evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of IDA from internal and external access, to the ever increasing boundaries of the enterprise supporting "anytime, anywhere, on any device" access.

Security and Policy Enforcement

Helping to ensure users and computers connecting to your network comply with your company's security policy requirements is a priority in today's business. In addition to the standard policy enforcement that Windows Server has provided for some time, Windows Server 2008 enhances these core features while supporting new platforms, such as Network Access Protection (NAP). NAP helps ensure that you are in control when users and computers are trying to access your network. NAP can make certain that connections have all the latest critical updates, antivirus software, have a functional host firewall, and so on. If not, NAP is also designed to allow you to quarantine them and guarantee they are updated before being allowed on your corporate network.

Server Management

Windows Server 2008 contains a slate of new and improved tools for managing Windows Server environments within your enterprise. These include Server Manager, which has been enhanced as a single source to manage all your server roles and features (including a command-line version), and Windows PowerShell, a new technology providing a programmable command-line shell and scripting language to manage many features and functions of the server.

Branch and Global Office

Today's enterprises consist of corporate headquarters, subsidiaries, branch offices, remote offices and satellite sites scattered all over the world. Many of these don't have IT support locally and people who have no expertise in IT maintenance usually have hands-on access to your remote servers. Maintaining control over security, management and reliability is a must. Windows Server 2008 builds on previous global office platforms and introduces new technologies focused on branch and remote office environments, from Read-Only Domain Controllers to ensure secure identity management and BitLocker Drive Encryption that prevents sensitive data from being stolen, to improvements in file replication and storage.

Late bookings mean we have to order extra manuals, which we have to pay express delivery charges for, additional food, that means our purchasing power is reduced, and reconfiguring rooms, which means extra time. Unfortunately all these unforeseen changes cost money which you end-up paying.

Just look how much you can save on our online listed prices the earlier you book!

  • 45 working days or more attracts an 8% reduction
