Course Description

It is important to protect your Exchange Server 2013 messaging infrastructure devices and end-points against unauthorized access to controlled or confidential information, and enterprise networks require an effective network access control embedded within the network infrastructure. In this course, you'll learn how to secure Exchange 2013 messaging and select an appropriate security strategy by evaluating a variety of security features such as role-based access control (RBAC), BitLocker, and smart cards. This course will also describe how to implement IRM with Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) as well as how to configure and interpret mailbox and administrative audit logging. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Advanced Solutions of Microsoft Exchange Server (70-342) 2013 exam.
