The Microsoft Security Compliance Manager is the next evolution of the Microsoft Security Compliance Management Toolkit (SCMT) Series. Leveraging Microsoft’s extensive guidance and documentation this new tool enables organizations to assess and automate their security baselines in one centralized location.
The Microsoft Security Compliance Manager provides centralized security baseline management features, a baseline portfolio, customization capabilities, and security baseline export flexibility to accelerate your organizations ability to manage efficiently the security and compliance process for the most widely used Microsoft technologies.
The Windows Server 2008 R2 Security Baseline is a new addition to the security baselines released earlier this year that can be used in combination with the Security Compliance Manager tool. The security baseline for Windows Server 2008 R2 provides organizations with free Microsoft-recommended solutions to meet today’s security challenges. In combination with best-practice guidance and the Security Compliance Manager tool, the baseline is designed to help organizations plan, deploy, and monitor the security of Windows Server 2008 R2. This release also includes a settings pack for Windows Server 2008 R2 that enables organizations to define baselines that include settings outside the scope of the security baselines from Microsoft.
