System Hardening | What does the Enforce Administrator do?
System hardening is an efficient and effective way to reduce the attack surface of your IT systems. This enables you to configure your operating systems, software and cloud applications in such a way that they are better protected against hacker and similar attacks. Among other things, this is achieved by disabling unneeded services and revoking unneeded permissions.
With system hardening you ensure better information security, more data protection and adherence to strict compliance requirements.
The Enforce Administrator is the perfect solution for hardening complex IT system landscapes centrally and fully automatically. And it does so permanently, always based on globally recognized hardening standards.
Features | What does the Enforce Administrator offer?

1) Fully automated system hardening
With the Enforce Administrator, you perform automated system hardening based on proven standards. These include the latest recommendations from DISA (Defense Information Systems Agency), CIS (Center for Internet Security), BSI (German Federal Office for Information Security) and ACSC (Australian Cyber Security Center) and Microsoft.
This will harden your IT systems based on Windows 10, Windows Server and SQL Server, products such as Microsoft Office and browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, and many more. And that across your entire IT system landscape. Centralized, automated and permanent.

Overview | Why use the Enforce Administrator?
The number of cyberattacks has been increasing massively for several years. Almost 90 percent of all companies were affected by malware, DDoS, phishing, ransomware and similar attacks in 2021, according to the Cyberthreat Report 2021. This resulted in sabotage, espionage and data leakage.
Attacks on IT systems of companies, public authorities or even hospitals have thus long since become a real scenario, and defense against these attacks an essential and indispensable duty for IT decision-makers in implementation, responsibly borne by the management.
Security experts and companies expect the number of attacks to increase in the coming years, especially in the area of critical infrastructures (CRITIS).
