Server and application configurations are a fundamental piece of securing your environment. If unauthorized changes are made to these configurations, you can be exposed to serious vulnerabilities. Learn how to harden your servers using PowerShell scripts in SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor. In this video, we'll create a custom profile with several PowerShell scripts to monitor changes to different aspects of your servers, like changes to local administrator privileges, antivirus exclusions, and local certificates.

For other videos, be sure to check out the Triple-T Hub.
