CIS Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Review

  • March 13, 2023
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Best practices developed that is the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks is great at assisting security practitioners in implementing and managing their cybersecurity defenses. Also we may install the most recent software packages and tools safely in a server environment to use in our environment and enable secure file sharing thanks to this service that allowed for the deployment of an operating system. If you have the skills for distributing software in a server environment, your options are virtually endless.
What do you dislike about the product?
The lack of a properly organised SDN in Microsoft Windows Server 2019's architecture is the only disadvantage I can think of. The lack of a useful centrally managed framework makes it difficult for us to shift from one network control plane to another.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Windows Server 2019 is used to install Amazon Fargate instances, which is a crucial component. We are able to establish all VPN connections without any licencing restrictions because the maximum RRAS connection is infinite. It is compatible with our.NET framework 4.7.1, eliminating our compiler dependency problems even if we forget to install some components or if the incorrect device drivers cause it to become damaged.

secure but unpractical and unsupported

  • January 31, 2022
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

The pre-hardened image by CIS helps solving the Inspector vulnerabilities, however there is no effective support - you can only raise a generic question not linked to your AWS account, you'll get a generic answer.
The CIS team doesn't feel committed to this product.
Also, they do not provide any guidance on upgrading to newer versions - having asked them via support request, the answer was simply "it's up to you".
I am unsatisfied but I have no other options - hardening a Windows system takes too much time which the my project plan can't afford.

Mentioned Level 1 in description?

It is of benchmark level 2 but mentioned the same description that of level 1 image. It would be great if the description provides a deference from level 1.
