Windows Server Security Hardening
Over the last decade years, we have seen huge change in Microsoft technology as Windows evolved from Windows NT 3.51 running on small 32-bit servers with a restricted range of applications to Windows 2008 on 64-bit platforms supporting a vastly increased range of applications and usage.
At the same time, the number and variety of threats that system administrators have to protect IT infrastructures against have increased exponentially. Windows gets a lot of bad press about security, but perhaps this is due to the popularity of the platform, which makes it a huge and attractive target for attack. This is pretty sure that attackers will never stop their malicious activities and that the success of Windows will continue to have it in the crosshairs for new attacks.
In this context, it is absolutely critical to protect Windows infrastructures using the full range of features available in the operating system.
