Q: A company's network security team needs to configure a Network Access Policy to limit user's access to specific services within the network.
Which of the following can be used with Windows Server 2012 R2 to limit user's access to specific services within a network?
- Web Application Proxy
- Network Access Protection
- Health Registration Authority
- Host Credential Authorization Protocol
Answer is A. A Web Application Proxy can be used with Windows Server 2012 R2 to limit user's access to specific services within a network. The Web Application Proxy provides organizations with the ability to provide selective access to applications and services running on servers inside the organization to end users located outside of the organization.
Quick Tip: Web Application Proxy publishing enables end users to access their organization's applications from their own devices, so that users are not limited to corporate laptops to do their work, they can use their home computer, their tablet, or their smartphone.
