We Need to Lock These Down! – Migration and Deployment (Part 19 of 19)

Try Windows 8 with this evaluation downloadIt’s the end of February, and the end of what I hope you will agree was a very satisfying series of 19 “Migration and Deployment” articles by my teammates and me – the U.S. based IT Pro Technology Evangelists.

“Yeah.. didn’t Microsoft have software restriction policies that could enforce limits on what can be installed or run?”

Exactly.  The most recent version was technology called AppLocker.  In Windows Vista and Windows 7 it allowed you to set those kinds of restrictions through Group Policy.  But what about the new Windows 8 applications?

“Yeah!  What about those?!”

Well, that’s what my friend Matt Hester writes about in this last, part 19, article in our series.
