Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Microsoft says Vista is the most secure Windows ever. Even so, securing Vista in the enterprise will take plenty of knowledge and effort on your part. This book provides the knowledge, helping you protect your Vista workstations, data, applications, and users as efficiently as humanly possible.

The authors walk you through securing user access, helping you make the most of encryption, Vista's improved handling of smartcards, and its rewritten logon architecture. (Among their many insider tips: Don't delete winit.exe. Files by that name used to be created by malware, but Vista's winit.exe is essential to managing logons.)

After introducing Vista's trusted platform module services, the authors guide you through managing rights, using encryption and PatchGuard, and preventing file copying to USB drives. You'll walk through securing networks (including IPv6 and wireless WPA2); protecting the new Windows Mail client; managing updates; and monitoring, well, just about everything. Bill Camarda, from the May 2007 Read Only
