Summary

Policy-Based Management is a new component in SQL Server 2012 that allows you to manage your SQL 2000, 2005, 2008, and 2012 servers by creating policies that can be used to enforce compliance to best practices or to report on out-of-compliance servers. It provides a highly granular, flexible, and extensible toolset that allows you to manage all aspects of your SQL Server. Properly used, it is a great tool to enforce standardization in your environment and to ease the management burden.

The next part of this book, Part IV, “SQL Server Security Administration,” explores the importance of implementing robust security standards and practices in your SQL Server environments and how to go about doing so.
