IIS8 Security features

I recently wrote two blog posts for CloudServers.com around new IIS8 security features. The first was about Dynamic IP Restrictions and how they can be implemented to provide an additional layer of security for your site against brute force DDoS type attacks. The second was about the new FTP Login restrictions that can be implemented to actively block brute force FTP attacks.

Both of these new features in IIS can be easily implemented and configured to provide another layer for security to your websites and applications.
