Windows Vista Security Guide

Posted by Xavier Ashe on November 15, 2006

The Windows Vista Security Guide provides guidance and tools to
further protect Windows Vista against real-live threats such as malware
and information theft. This solution accelerator recommends the
Enterprise Client (EC) configuration for organizations of all types.
Only in extreme security situations does the guide recommend the
Specialized Security – Limited Functionality (SSLF) configuration,
which considerably limits client computer functionality.
The Solution Accelerator includes recommendations about how to use new
and enhanced security technologies in Windows Vista to better defend
the client computers in your organization against malware. The guide
also provides recommendations and best practices on how to use
encryption and access control technologies in Windows Vista to protect
corporate data. Application compatibility testing recommendations are
included.
This Solution Accelerator includes several files, such as the Windows
Vista Security Guide.doc, the detailed Appendix A of the Windows Vista
Security Guide.doc, the Windows Vista Security Guide Settings.xls, and
the GPOAccelerator tool to help you easily implement the guidance.
