7. Compare and contrast three leading Microsoft Windows Security Audit Tools using the text, Internet and/or your job as reference for full credit. “A Windows security audit involves identifying, collecting, and analyzing information.” (Solomon, 2014). Microsoft provides tools on the computer that you could use to conduct such an audit. A lot of the tools do a lot of different things, so that way when you are gathering your information, you don’t gather a lot of unnecessary information. One of the tools Microsoft provides to its customers, is called, Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA). “GUI auditing tool that checks one or more computers for missing patches, weak passwords, and other common security vulnerabilities.” (Solomon, 2014). At first glance some people wonder what a GUI is; a GUI is a graphical user interface. “A Graphical User Interface is a computer interface that allows users to interact with a device through graphical elements such as pictures and animations, as opposed to text-based commands.” (Waton).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
