CIS Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Benchmark L2

Center For Internet Security, Inc. 

Hardened according to a CIS Benchmark - the consensus-based best practice for secure configuration.

This image of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 is preconfigured by CIS to the recommendations in the associated CIS Benchmark. CIS Benchmarks are vendor agnostic, consensus-based security configuration guides both developed and accepted by government, business, industry, and academia. CIS Benchmarks also provide a foundation to comply with numerous cybersecurity frameworks. Cloud environments and operating systems are not secure by default. Launching an image hardened according to the trusted security configuration baselines prescribed by a CIS Benchmark will reduce cost, time, and risk to an organization. This image has been hardened by CIS and is configured with the majority of the recommendations included in the free PDF version of the corresponding CIS Benchmark. The Level 2 Profile settings within the CIS Benchmark have been applied for environments where security is paramount, acts as a defense in depth measure, and may negatively inhibit the utility or performance of the technology. The hardening of this instance was configured through the utilization of local group policy. To learn more or access the corresponding CIS Benchmark, please visit the CIS website or visit our community platform, WorkBench. If the intention is to use this instance in a domain environment where policies are managed globally, the majority of the security settings will be changed and managed by domain policies. The Benchmark that is the basis for this image was developed for system and application administrators, security specialists, auditors, help desk professionals, and platform deployment personnel who plan to develop, deploy, assess, or secure solutions that incorporate Microsoft Windows Server 2012. CIS Benchmarks are developed in a unique consensus-based process comprised of hundreds of security professionals worldwide as de facto, best-practice configuration standards.
