The Security Compliance Manager is a free Solution Accelerator from Microsoft which has been designed to enable organisations to take advantage of the experience of Microsoft security professionals and reduce the time and cost required to harden Windows infrastructure.
The Security Compliance Manager provides access to the complete database of Microsoft recommended security settings; using this information you can configure and customise security baselines; these can then be exported to multiple formats, including Excel, Group Policy objects (GPOs), Desired Configuration Management (DCM) packs or the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP), for analysis or implementation.
Solution Accelerator’s are tools and guidance that help you solve your deployment, planning and operational IT problems. Solution Accelerator’s are free and fully supported. Want to learn more about Microsoft Solution Accelerator’s, Click Here.
