Summary

In this chapter, we used many concepts together to put the hosts we manage in to an ideal state of security. The purpose was to prevent or hinder any hacking activity. We locked the startup folders for Windows users. We locked the hosts file. We also started the necessary services and stopped the unnecessary ones. Further, we tried to set our Windows Firewall to an ideal state. Finally, we made all the local administrator passwords unique.

In the next chapter, we will see reporting and monitoring of hosts.
