Earlier this year the Microsoft Solution Accelerators team announced the beta release of this free new tool. They gathered feedback from IT pros and organizations around the globe, and they’re excited to share the result: a tool designed to help your organization efficiently manage the security and compliance process for the most widely used Microsoft technologies.

The Security Compliance Manager will help you accelerate knowledge to merge best practices, customize once to centralize decision making, and export to multiple formats to enable monitoring, verification, and compliance. The tool will ultimately help to accelerate your organization’s ability to efficiently manage the security and compliance process for the most widely used Microsoft technologies.

This end-to-end Solution Accelerator will help you plan, deploy, operate, and manage your security baselines for Windows® client and server operating systems, and Microsoft applications. Access the complete database of Microsoft recommended security settings, customize your baselines, and then choose from multiple formats—including Desired Configuration Management (DCM) packs, Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP), XLS, or Group Policy objects (GPOs)—to export the baselines to your environment to automate the security baseline compliance verification process.

Windows 7 security just got easier.
