Use the Microsoft Security Assessment Tool 4.0 to build your business risk profile

The Microsoft Security Assessment Tool (MSAT) is a free tool designed to help organizations assess weaknesses in their current IT security environment, reveal a prioritized list of issues, and help provide specific guidance to minimize those risks.

The tool employs a holistic approach to measuring your security posture and covers topics including people, process, and technology.

MSAT provides:
– Easy to use, comprehensive, and continuous security awareness
– A defense-in-depth framework with industry comparative analysis
– Detailed, ongoing reporting comparing your baseline to your progress
– Proven recommendations and prioritized activities to improve security
– Structured Microsoft and industry guidance

There are two assessments that define the Microsoft Security Assessment Tool:
– Business Risk Profile Assessment
– Defense in Depth Assessment (UPDATED)
