Software and data protection firm Sophos has issued a new report on the security of Windows 7. The report aims to clarify if security in Windows 7 is better than what we had with Vista and its annoying UAC feature.

Sophos reports that Microsoft seems to have listened and tried to make security more robust and less intrusive. The report looks at the effectiveness of the security features and requires a registration to access.

Microsoft provides some new and useful tools for users and admins, but while some may be effective solutions, others are flawed in execution. "Most businesses will stick to third-party expert security providers, but it's possible the decrease in numbers of easy targets elsewhere will reduce the numbers of zombies (hijacked computers), malware attacks, spam bots and DDoS contributors pumping spam and other malicious attacks toward our networks," comments Sophos.
