Configuring and Deploying Just Enough and Just-In-Time Administration

Orin Thomas

Just enough administration is a new administration model that involves giving those that need to perform administrative tasks only those tools needed to complete those tasks. Just-In-Time administration is a complementary technology available in Windows Server 2016 that allows you to assign users to privileged groups for a limited duration rather than on a semi-permanent basis. In this session you’ll learn about the steps you need to take to deploy Just Enough Administration and Just-In-Time Administration, also known as Privileged Access Management. You’ll learn about how you can configure Just Enough Administration to allow users to perform specific tasks. You’ll also learn how you can configure Just-In-Time administration so that users are removed from privileged groups after a specific amount of time.
