VPNs don't have to suck! Richard chats with Richard Hicks about the latest in DirectAccess, Microsoft's built in VPN technology that makes maintaining a secure connection for a remote PC a bit less painful. Richard talks about how the server-side of DirectAccess being pretty solid for Server 2012R2 and 2016. But the big improvement comes from deploying Windows 10 Enterprise - bringing key features like multi-homing so that remote PCs can choose from a variety of geographically dispersed data centers. The conversation also goes to the mobile device management side of things, since DirectAccess requires a domain-joined version of Windows, it's not for everything. What are the alternatives?
