Windows 7 Security Enhancements

Paul Cooke, Director, Windows Client Enterprise Security, Microsoft Corporation, provided a brief writeup on three areas of security enhancements in Windows® 7. The three primary topics focused on in the article include the following:
  • Windows 7 is built upon the security foundations of the Windows Vista® operating system while improving auditing and the User Account Control (UAC) experience.
  • Windows 7 helps IT control what software can run in their environment with AppLocker™.
  • Windows 7 enhances the core features of BitLocker™ Drive Encryption with the introduction of BitLocker To Go™ for removable storage devices.
See Windows 7 Security Enhancements for more detail about these enhancements.

May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...

I really think Microsoft have listened to the Windows user and are catering much more to what the user expects and not what the tech guys think should happen--with regards to Security on Windows 7.
