Security features in Windows® 7 Enterprise edition
Microsoft offers six different editions of Windows 7: Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. The software Giant recommends Windows 7 Enterprise edition for large corporate customers. In this article we are going to discuss the security features of Windows 7 Enterprise edition.
DirectAccess: This feature, which requires both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, allows mobile workers connect to corporate networks without the use of a Virtual Private Network. It offers more flexibility to business users. It requires only an Internet connection to have access to everything on the corporate network.
DirectAccess is used with Windows Server 2008 R2 in the background, which will use the most secure protocol, IPv6, to encrypt data transmitted over the Internet.
BitLocker:The BitLocker hard-drive encryption feature came with Windows Vista to protect data on lost or stolen laptops. In Windows 7, the feature has been improved to protect storage devices such as external hard drives and USB sticks. This feature allows external storage device to be restricted with a password. You may lose external devices without even noticing, but if it protected by BitLocker no one can access that data.
BranchCache:This also requires both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. It has been developed to speed up networks in remote offices that are away from corporate headquarters. BranchCache will speed up the accessing of large remote files stored on the corporate network.
Desktop Search: You can expand search from the desktop to Share Point sites to the Internet and then find a document wherever it may be - on your computer, on your network or on the Internet.
AppLocker: Windows 7 AppLocker not only helps in removing unknown applications but also provides security. With the higher risks of malware infections, the user can’t be certain whether they are running the approved and licensed software. Sometimes, the non-productive applications are downloaded by the users which are not compatible with business applications, which hampers the performance on the local desktop.
