Simple steps can tighten Windows 8 security

Sponsored by IBM

Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 are arguably Microsoft’s most secure operating systems yet, but desktop administrators still need to understand how their new features work. Enterprise IT must also address persistent vulnerabilities and remember the continued importance of patching. A combination of built-in and third-party tools can help admins keep up with Windows 8.x security.
