We’re pleased to announce the release of new resources that can be used in combination with the Security Compliance Manager tool: the Office 2010 Security Baseline and setting packs for Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8. Together with the SCM tool, these resources are designed to help organizations efficiently manage the security and compliance process for some of the most widely used Microsoft products.
- The security baseline for Microsoft® Office 2010 provides you 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 you plan, deploy, and monitor the security of Office 2010 applications. This release also includes a setting pack for Office 2010, enabling you to define baselines that include settings outside the scope of the security baselines from Microsoft.
- The Windows® 7 and Windows® Internet Explorer® 8 setting packs, in combination with the Security Compliance Manager tool, will enable you to define baselines that include settings outside the scope of the security baselines from Microsoft. Use these new resources to define custom baselines, meet business-critical needs, and elevate the security of Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8.
