Windows Trust 5 Iso
we’ve talked about some of these topics before, but we’re stoked to be able to provide a set of administrative guidelines that help keep our global customer base aligned with our vision of an integrated azure management model. these guidelines are not meant to override existing best practices, but to add clarity and alignment around what you might see in the environment.
some of our customers and partners use system center configuration manager (sccm) to deploy workloads and collect status on on-premises windows server and hyper-v environments. others use system center configuration manager to install and manage system center virtual machine manager. (this includes managing installed base hyper-v vms that run workloads, as well as vms installed and managed by windows server system center virtual machine manager.) in both cases, system center configuration manager communicates with system center virtual machine manager by connecting to the management endpoint shared with hyper-v.
as a system center family member, the azure management plane of system center will run alongside the existing sccm management plane. azure’s integration with system center started with some early uptake of system center 2016 r2 deployment, while since 2012, we’ve built on the ability to extend our platform to a broader set of azure management functions. these included deployment with vms, remote deployment, arm templates, subscriptions, and the ability to manage workloads, gpos, and other use cases. (this builds on the existing features in the system center management plane and powershell throughout.)
for zero trust to be useful, an organization needs to know what is happening at its network perimeter. the best available security technology exposes all network activity to an administrator, who can then define and manage policies, create access rights, and monitor an organization’s defenses. zero trust requires endpoints to run zero trust policies, and a zero trust certificate.
the f-secure zero trust policy platform is based on a series of policies that govern the network. the overall goal of zero trust is to protect the network against attacks by stopping any potentially harmful traffic. zero trust defines:
• applications that users can run on their network devices. these include email clients and web browsers. apps are identified by the ca that issued the certificate for that application. the zero trust policy applies to these applications and their certificates.
• the users to whom the network is authorized. zero trust uses a principle of least privilege to apply security policies to user accounts. zero trust permits users to run any applications but it denies them access to applications they are not authorized to use. zero trust uses a mapping from a user account to the computers that the user can access. the zero trust policy applies to these computers and their certificates.
zero trust is a big change to the way organizations thought about security and traffic flow. organizations with a history of security misconfigurations and lax control of user access will feel the change right away.
as we prepare to bring windows server system center configuration manager 2019 to microsoft cloud, we’re wrapping up some organizational planning, and a set of new guidelines around how to get and manage your azure cloud environments.
