Hi folks, Ned here with a quickie advert: The Security Compliance Manager 2.5 beta released the other day, with a bunch of new features and other goo.
Hot damn, #2 and #3 are what everyone kept asking for, and they’ve finally been delivered.
Never heard of SCM? For shame, I’ve discussed it here a few times. You just don’t care what I have to say, DO YOU? I AM GOING TO SPEND FOUR HOURS ON THE PHONE TALKING ABOUT YOU WITH MY GIRLFRIENDS!!!
Update 4/4/2012: SCM 2.5 no longer beta and is released to world. Thanks for the heads up Mike!

Hi Ned, I tried to download/access the SCM 2.5, but I get the "The content that you requested cannot be found or you do not have permission to view it." error using the link in your post. When I do manual search for SCM on the Connect website, it returns only V2.
Are there any special permissions required to download it?
Disregard my previous post, was posting faster than thinking. I didn't realize I had to join the SCM program in order to download it.
No worries, it's still a good question. :)
For those that want to join this or any other beta, go here: connect.microsoft.com/directory. Logon with a Live ID. Then next to "Security Compliance Manager v2", click JOIN.
Good news, the product has been officially released, goodbye beta.
Really good tool, and even more helpful in the federal space.
