PowerShell is an enormous addition to the Windows toolbox that gives Windows admins the ability to automate all sorts of tasks, such as rotating logs, deploying patches, and managing users. Whether it’s specific Windows administration jobs or security-related tasks such as managing certificates and looking for attack activity, there is a way to do it in PowerShell.
Speaking of security, there’s a good chance someone has already created a PowerShell script or a module to handle the job. Microsoft hosts a gallery of community-contributed scripts that handle a variety of security chores, such as penetration testing, certificate management, and network forensics, to name a few.
