Windows 7 Client Protection

Networked client computers are constantly under attack. In the past, repairing computers compromised by malware was a significant cost to IT departments.

The Windows 7 operating system strives to reduce this cost by using a combination of technologies-including User Account Control (UAC), Windows AppLocker, and Windows Defender. Additionally, Microsoft offers Microsoft Forefront separately from Windows 7 to provide better manageability of client security.
