Microsoft has released an updated application security tool kit for developers.
The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Tool kit (EMET) offers users the ability to deploy security technologies to arbitrary applications.
The Microsoft Security Research & Defense blog offers more details. “This helps prevent vulnerabilities in those applications (especially line of business and 3rd party apps) from successfully being exploited.”
“By deploying these mitigation technologies on legacy products, the tool can also help customers manage risk while they are in the process of transitioning over to modern, more secure products. In addition, it makes it easy for customers to test mitigations against any software and provide feedback on their experience to the vendor.”
