Security is one of the biggest issues facing Windows administrators. Until now
admins have had to gather information from various online and print sources.
This is the first book to gather into one place in an easy to follow format all the
information available about security on the Windows Server 2003 platform.
While it is written in the form of a reference, the author doesn't just list the
features, however, but gives a plethora of practical implementation tips. It
extends security from single server based best practices to those that can
produce an entire security framework for Windows domains. Roberta Bragg is
one of the best known writers and speakers on the subject, and she uses her
knowledge of what problems professional administrators face every day to fine
tune the content to their needs. She will be promoting this book heavily in her
many articles and speaking engagements.
Finally there is a comprehensive, practical guide to Windows Server 2003 security!
° Roberta Bragg is one of the most widely recognized and respected names in the Windows security field
° Security is the most urgent concern of most Windows administrators
° Provides deep technical details on Windows security systems, including how they work and how to correctly configure them for maximum protection
° Will appeal to admins of all levels
