EMET 5.5 Exits Beta, Now Fully Sanctioned to Mitigate Attacks

Last December Microsoft delivered version 5.5 of its Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) into beta. Now, after what seems a ridiculously short beta cycle, EMET 5.5 has now been stripped of the beta moniker and released as a full-fledged tool to help protect against potential attackers.

Here’s what’s new with the official release:

  • Windows 10 compatibility
  • Improved configuration of various mitigations via GPO
  • Improved writing of the mitigations to the registry, making it easier to leverage existing tools to manage EMET mitigations via GPO
  • EAF/EAF+ perf improvements
  • Untrusted font mitigation for Windows 10
