In this webcast, we look at technologies in the Windows Server 2008 operating system that can help you enhance security and manageability at remote locations. First we explore the deployment and features of Read-Only Domain Controllers (RODCs), explain the advantages and limitations of RODCs, and describe why RODCs can benefit remote locations. Next we examine delegating the administrative role on RODCs. We then examine using Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption to protect data where physical security cannot be guaranteed. Finally, we discuss networking enhancements in the new TCP/IP stack that make connectivity to remote locations faster and more reliable.
