A common point of entry for Malware is through the desktop user.
From there, the attacker can use that single point of entry to infect the entire network.
An effective method for containing such an attack, and therefore greatly limiting the potential damage, is to “harden” your desktop configurations.
What does a hardened desktop configuration provide?
- A workstation configuration that greatly increases the security of the workstation
- Makes the system much more difficult to be compromised and used as an entry point to infect the entire network
- The creation of a Windows workstation configuration designed to resist common attacks such as Pass the Hash
- A base image for deploying workstations throughout the enterprise
It is well worth the effort to deploy properly hardened desktop configurations throughout your enterprise.
