Scenario: The Healthy Helping Hands CIO is planning to implement a company-wide bring your own computer program. A company survey has identified that many of the users interested in the program plan to bring Macintosh computers. The CIO has determined that user-owned devices will NOT be managed by IT staff, will NOT receive corporate software, and will NOT receive anti-virus protection. User-owned devices should be treated as a security risk, must only communicate with necessary systems, and must NO f have the potential to cause any network downtime. Which network architecture design should the architect implement for this scenario?
Use Access Gateway Enterprise Edition to restrict the user-owned devices based on endpoint analysis scans.
Why is using two farms the best design for the short-term rollout of XenDesktop?
This will ensure scalability when the rest of the user groups are migrated to virtual desktops.
How can the architect ensure that users in the Engineering and Marketing departments have preferential access to CPU resources?
Apply the service policy to the Engineering and Marketing user groups based on the Access Control filter.
