    Is Windows a joke or are you? 🧢

    > the guide recommends application updates only for enterprise users

    No. Maybe read this part https://github.com/jmau111-org/windows_security#7-recommenta...

    > strong passwords [...] counter to NIST and other accepted guidelines

    I don't think it's the case. Even if it is, I would disagree with that point of view.

    > It should be mentioned that common Windows antivirus and endpoint security software is in itself a security risk [...] Similarly, phishing attacks are enabled by common Windows-based applications such as Outlook

    Lots of confusions here, to me, but thanks for your comment overall. In fact, the guide tries to keep things simple but could certainly be improved on some points.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • Sandboxie

    HardeningKitty is a good start but truly securing Windows is actually super complicated.
