Earlier this week Microsoft introduced the new Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit 3.2. MAP is a scalable and agent-less assessment platform designed to make it easier to determine which Microsoft technologies are right for your infrastructure, and how to best implement them. In this version, MAP assessment capabilities have expanded to a range of Microsoft products, including Forefront Client Security and Network Access Protection.
The Security Assessment provides help to identify physical and virtual machines that may represent security risks in your environment, including:
- Discovery and inventory of client machines.
- Identification of machines where Windows Security Center is not running.
- Identification of machines where firewall, antispyware or antivirus products are not found, are not running or are not up to date as reported by Windows Security Center.
