Microsoft has released a tool designed for the analysis of security incidents.
According to the report to Microsoft, the software giant released the first tool for the analysis of security incidents – Attack Surface Analyzer 1.0.
This software is an analog instrument used by the security departments of the company to identify changes in the system when you install new programs.
Attack Surface Analyzer makes “snapshots” of systems, organizations, and provides a comparative analysis of the changes. The tool does not analyze the system based on signatures and known vulnerabilities. Instead, the application searches for the class gap, as installation of applications on the operating system Windows.
The instrument contains a built-in user guide, which can provide substantial support for the inexperienced user in the process of scanning and analysis. In the console version implemented the ability to automate processes, and also adds support for earlier versions of Windows. In addition, IT-experts can share the console version with other similar software.
