Building on the Security in Windows 7

Microsoft developed the Windows 7 Security Guide to provide instructions and recommendations to help strengthen the security of desktop and laptop computers running Windows 7 in enterprise domains. Because of our considerable experience developing similar guidance, Wadeware was engaged by Microsoft to provide technical editing services for this prescriptive guidance, including documentation for tools, step-by-step procedures, recommendations, and processes.

Business issue and requirements

Microsoft needed a guide that provides security recommendations for IT pros to help them significantly streamline the deployment process. The guide needed to provide a reproducible method for applying the guidance in both test and production environments.


The Windows 7 Security Guide was developed primarily for security professionals, network architects, and other IT pros and consultants who plan application or infrastructure development and deployments of Windows 7 in large environments. Wadeware was proud to be part of the team that developed the security guidance for such a significant Microsoft product.
