"Rountree and technical editor Hicks, both experienced Windows network security professionals, intend this seven chapter reference for anyone who must secure a Windows 2012 Server system. It presumes a good knowledge of networking and Windows administration. The first chapter is an introduction to Windows 8 and Server 2012. It covers PowerShell and Server Manager and also provides an introduction to the new IPv6 networking protocol."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
