Using DirectAccess to Provide Secure Access to Corporate Resources from Anywhere

Although broadband services and Wi-Fi have dramatically improved, the connectivity experience for remote corporate users remains largely unchanged. Microsoft is leveraging the DirectAccess feature in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 to allow seamless remote access to corporate applications and data for its employees. The solution, which only requires Internet connectivity and credentials, reduces costs by leveraging the Internet as a transport mechanism. It also provides a compelling user experience, enables unified access architecture, and offers strong host based security.
