    Default 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.

    Thanks for the informative link. Good to see that Windows 7 is building up upon the strong security lineage of Windows Vista.

    This is all good stuff. But what does it really mean for the simple Joe's like us. It looks like they do a lot for the corporate environment, but I see little additional security function for the stand alone installations. The UAC improvements, however, are welcome.
