Microsoft Attack Surface Analyzer & Security Compliance Manager

Microsoft have relased an attack surface analyzer as part of their Security Development LifeCycle tools. The free product is avaiilable for download here.

As well as using the attack surface analyzer tool, I would highly recommend using the Microsoft Security Compliance Manager for assisting in applying best practice group policies for a Windows Domain Environment.

Understanding the attack surface on a server and applying best practice security policies within an enterprise environment are vital as part of a security strategy.

If your interested in security and using a free tool for pen testing, try this one as part of your security  toolkit.
