I have spent the better part of the past 6 years focusing on securing Windows desktops (in addition to the entire Windows enterprise). I have been trying to educate, evangelize, and help organizations and administrators understand what options are possible with Windows operating systems. It has come to my attention that much of the work I have been doing is still not making a large enough impact, so I wanted to continue to stress what different desktop security options are available and what each option provides for you, as an organization. I have always said that security is like a food buffet, you must select the options and features that you feel will give you the best security for your organization, while still allowing users to be functional. After reading this article you will have a much better idea as to what each security buffet item provides, and what it does not provide.
