Hi All,

When released in early 2008, the Windows Server 2008 Security Guide will provide IT professionals with best practices and automated tools to help strengthen the security of servers running Windows Server 2008.

Based on extensive experience from customers, government agencies, and Microsoft security experts, the Windows Server 2008 Security Guide lets customers choose from two pre-configured security baselines. Both configurations have been thoroughly tested in Microsoft labs, and validated by customers and partners under real-world conditions.

Customers can easily tailor the configuration they choose, modifying any security setting to accommodate the unique needs of their organization.

The guide also includes a powerful GPOAccelerator tool that helps customers quickly establish, test, and automatically deploy a tested configuration of Group Policy security settings across their organization—in minutes, instead of hours or days.

The guide is now in Beta release, and is available for your review on  Microsoft® TechNet. Check out the Executive Overview by clicking here. To join the Beta program for the Windows Server 2008 Security Guide, click here.
