How we did it

Jul 12, 20041 min

How we tested Pedestal Software’s SecurityExpressions 3.1.

We installed SecurityExpressions on a generic, Intel-based 2-GHz, 2G-byte RAM system running Windows 2000 Server and a 1.2-GHz, 512M-byte RAM laptop running Windows XP Professional.

We scanned five Windows systems and three Linux/Unix systems with a variety of policies from each. We also scanned three Windows and two Linux/Unix systems that resided on a network in a remote office via a VPN tunnel. We also scanned systems in the local network that were part of a different Windows domain.

We then imported a group policy into SecurityExpressions and created our own custom policy file to run against systems in our Windows domain.
