89 C H A P T E R 4 | Networking Figure 4-6: Datacenter firewall The datacenter firewall is controlled by Network Controller. The tenant administrator can configure policies and apply them directly to a Vport on the Hyper-V switch. Additionally, as tenant workloads move around the datacenter, the policy for the tenant can follow them on their journey between hosts. Web Application Proxy By Yuri Diogenes and David Branscome In this section, we demonstrate how you can use the updated Web Application Proxy in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview to easily access information from anywhere. Publishing capability enhancements Users can access company data by using different form factors (e.g., laptop computers, tablets, and smartphones), which here, for simplicity, we will just refer to as devices. These devices can originate requests from different locations, but the users expect to have an experience similar to what they have when they are on-premises. IT must ensure that the entire communication channel is secure, from data at rest in the datacenter (on-premises or in the cloud), to data in transit until it reaches the destination device. There, it will also be at rest and must also be secure. To make it possible for users to securely access company data, Web Application Proxy in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview was enhanced to cover more bring-your-own-device (BYOD) scenarios, such as Pre-Auth with Microsoft Exchange Server, which we will discuss later in more detail. Web Application Proxy continues to make use of Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) and Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) for authentication and authorization. This integration is very important for BYOD scenarios because it provides the capability to create custom rules for users who are accessing resources while physically located on-premises versus those accessing resources via the Internet.
