Restricting administrative access to only the tools needed to perform specific maintenance has always been a challenge. Often it was simpler just to give someone complete administrative control over the entire server, drastically reducing security. Now, it's easier than ever before to restrict admins to only the tools necessary using Just Enough Administration (JEA). In this course, you will learn how to define roles and create JEA endpoints. You will learn how to register and test these JEA constrained endpoints, and how to review detailed logs and transactions of usage.

Course Overview
Hello, I'm Jason Helmick with Pluralsight, and welcome to Play By Play with Pluralsight. Play By Play is a series where we sit down with the top technologists in an unscripted and unrehearsed conversation. I'm here in Redmond, Washington on the steps of Microsoft HQ to sit down with the technical elite of Microsoft, so folks building the tools and the technologies that you use or should be using moving forward. In this course, Ryan Puffer's going to show you a new way to get control over your security with something called Just Enough Administration. It'll not only help you reduce your attack surface from the outside, but more importantly from the inside, from within, and to be honest, you'll see these young smart guys at Microsoft are really making a difference with things that really matter, like security. You're going to love this session. Don't miss it.
