When it comes to migration planning, Microsoft moves fast. Just six months after the release the Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit 6.5, the company has now put out a beta for MAP 7.0.

According to the Microsoft Connect website the toolkit will help users determine readiness for the Windows Server 2012 beta, virtualize Linux servers, size server hardware for desktop virtualization and help with VMware-to-Hyper-V virtual machine migration.

Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit gets “supported” status, receives update

Redmond also recently released version 3.0 of its Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit.

The EMET is intended to protect against hackers overtaking a system – even if a patch for a legacy piece of software does not exist – by blocking against known vulnerabilities.

Microsoft’s download page touts the EMET’s ability to be deployed, configured and monitored from System Center Configuration Manager or via Group Policy.
