Provides information and recommendations about best practices for security within an information technology (IT) infrastructure.
The Microsoft Security Assessment Tool (MSAT) was designed to be a risk-assessment application that provides information and recommendations about best practices for security within an information technology (IT) infrastructure.
The Microsoft Security Assessment Tool 4.0 is the revised version of the original Microsoft Security Risk Self-Assessment Tool (MSRSAT), released in 2004 and the Microsoft Security Assessment Tool 2.0 released in 2006. Security issues have evolved since 2004 so additional questions and answers were needed to ensure you had a comprehensive toolset to become more aware of the evolving security threat landscape that could impact your organization.
The tool employs a holistic approach to measuring your security posture by covering topics across people, process, and technology. Findings are coupled with prescriptive guidance and recommended mitigation efforts, including links to more information for additional industry guidance. These resources may assist you in keeping you aware of specific tools and methods that can help change the security posture of your IT environment.
There are two assessments that define the Microsoft Security Assessment Tool:
– Business Risk Profile Assessment
– Defense in Depth Assessment (UPDATED)
