Windows 7: Security baseline news for Microsoft Edge version 81

Security baseline news for Microsoft Edge version 81

We have reviewed the new settings in version 81 of Microsoft Edge and determined that no new security settings are required. The settings recommended in the version 80 baseline will continue to be the security baseline for version 81! This means we will not be releasing our typical package.

Version 81 of Microsoft Edge adds 15 new computer- and user-based settings. There are now 285 enforceable Computer Configuration policy settings and 269 User Configuration policy settings. Using our streamlined approach, our baseline remains at 12 Group Policy settings. We have attached a spreadsheet with the new settings to make it easier for you to find them.

The version 80 package continues to be available as part of the Security Compliance Toolkit. Like all our baseline packages, this package includes:
  • Importable GPOs
  • A script to apply the GPOs to local policy
  • A script to import the GPOs into Active Directory Group Policy
  • A spreadsheet documenting all recommended settings in spreadsheet form (minus the version 81 setting that are attached to this blog)
  • Policy Analyzer rules
  • GP Reports
We always welcome feedback through the Baselines Discussion site.

Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) for 64 bit W7
When downloading MBSA from Microsoft's site I get "This setup cannot be installed on a x64 system: try installing a setup that supports x64 bit systems.) I cannot find such a setup. A really helpful message! So, how can I download MBSA for my x64 bit W7 machine? Thanks.
