Security Compliance Management – Solution Accelerator Available

I wrote about it as we released the Beta. Now, the Solution Accelerator for Security Compliance Management is live and available. It is definitely worth looking at it: Security Compliance Management.

Just to quote from the webpage:

In today's IT environment, the ability to comply with regulations and industry standards, such as the Sarbanes Oxley Act, is a source of deep concern for many organizations. In addition, organizations need to manage risks resulting from emerging threats and changing conditions within their IT infrastructures. As a result, organizations need sound methods that they can count on to understand the state of the security settings in their IT infrastructures, assess the compliance of a security baseline, and demonstrate that compliance requirements have been met.

To help organizations address these challenges, Microsoft has created the Security Compliance Management toolkit. The toolkit provides best practices from Microsoft about how to plan, deploy, and monitor a security baseline. In addition, the toolkit provides remediation recommendations to address security baseline issues. The toolkit also offers a proven method that your organization can use to effectively monitor the compliance state of recommended security baselines for Windows Vista®, Windows® XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), and Windows Server® 2003 SP2.

  • Hi Roger,

    Thanks for the heads up on this one.

    I am really looking forward to Security Compliance Management.

    I will be reading the white papers this and the following week. Do you have any feedback in regards to this?

    Cheers
