EMET 4.1 application installation on Servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've scanned the forums/literature concerning EMET4.1.  How does it apply to Servers?  I am running Windows Server 2008r2 sp1 with mostly windows 7 workstations.  It appears to me that the EMET application is primarily for workstations, not servers.  I have DCs and member servers on virtual machines with a mixed workstation/thin clients.  It isn't clear to me the location to install EMET 4.1.  Understand the group policy deployment for W/S.

  • The applications it protects in either profile that you load up are end user applications i.e. outlook/ie/chrome/ff/reader/flash etc. Stuff that you hopefully don't have on your servers so EMET should be of limited use on servers. Can you run/install it on the off case that someone uses IE and manages to browse a malformed/exploit hosting page either internally or externally .. yes but that's a risk management choice that is up to you.
