Hello World! I gathered a collection of helpful security tools and resources.


I gathered a collection of helpful Microsoft security tools and resources that can be
used to improve overall computer security for your environment.
The best part is that most tools are free.
Below are some helpful tools to improve security in your environment:
Microsoft security Intelligence report
The Microsoft Security Intelligence Report (SIR) analyzes the threat landscape of exploits, vulnerabilities, and malware using data from Internet services and over 600 million computers worldwide.
Threat awareness can help you protect your organization, software, and people.

The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) is designed to help customers with their defense in depth strategies against cyberattacks, by helping detect and block exploitation techniques that are commonly used
to exploit memory corruption vulnerabilities. EMET anticipates the most common actions and techniques adversaries might use in compromising a computer, and helps protect by diverting, terminating, blocking,
and invalidating those actions and techniques.
EMET helps protect your computer systems even before new and undiscovered threats are formally addressed by security updates and antimalware software.
EMET benefits enterprises and all computer users by helping to protect against security threats and breaches that can disrupt businesses and daily lives.

The Security Compliance Manager (SCM) is a free tool from the Microsoft Solution Accelerators team that enables you to quickly configure and manage the computers in your environment and your private cloud
using Group Policy and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager.
SCM provides ready-to-deploy policies and DCM configuration packs based on Microsoft security guide recommendations and industry best practices, allowing you to easily manage configuration drift and address compliance
requirements for Windows operating systems, Office applications, and other Microsoft applications.
Now you can easily configure computers running Windows Server 2012, Windows 8, Microsoft Office applications, and Windows Internet Explorer 10 with industry leading knowledge and fully supported tools.
In addition to the latest software releases, you can also configure previous additions of Windows Server and Microsoft Office.
These are group polices, so it needs to be tested in a test/dev/qa environment prior to releasing into production.
