Windows 7 Security Enhancements

Security is still a top concern for IT professionals; now that Windows 7 Beta is available, questions regarding what Microsoft has done with the Windows 7 operating system abound. There is a lot of ground to cover-more than we can in a brief article- but there are three primary topics that merit our focus here.

  • 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.
