Microsoft has been changing OSes as often as the phone company changes area codes and with that you need to keep up on the latest developments. One of the biggest problems arising from computers today is security and this book certainly helps me to understand what it takes to lock down 2000 and XP. Having worked with 2000 for over a year and XP for over 6 months, I am finding new things out everyday. I was pleasantly surprised to see that these authors have gone to great lengths to make the understanding of the security systems in 2000 and XP may not be a complex as they seem.The book is very well documented, in fact the entire book is in PDF format making it a portable reference. What you'll find in the 800 pages is what to do from securing the internet to restricting access to setting user rights and permissions.The authors have even gone as far as putting in numerous step by step exercises fro you to work with. Another thing that makes this book standout is the fact that is can be used for both the 70-214 and the Security+ exams.Finally the section on wireless security is one that I am re-reading, while the concepts are understandable, I have to go over the section to fully understand it. The book also has a cd included and as stated before the e-book is include as well as a number of various add-ins and utilities.I think the overall value comes from the fact that the book covers a wide range of security related information, 2 operating systems, and 2 versions of the XP operating system and is detailed and well documented.
Thios damn book weighs about 20 pounds, but has more information per ounce than dozens of others. No padding, no wasted words, just pages and pages of help.I've completely changed my backup procedures as a result of reading one chapter. And I'm more confident of my internet security and data integrety.Excellent book!
The Microsoft Windows Security Inside Out for Windows XP book is a great buy. This book is an excellent reference.
