    It's used for assigning permissions to a file / folder instead of having to add each individual user account seperately.

    Just say you have a folder called porn and you only want yourself and your brother to see it. You would create a security group and grant the security group the necessary permissions on the folder and then add your account and your brothers account to the security group. Then if you want to add anyone else to the folder you just have to add then to the group. Hope this makes sense.

    P.s. Security groups can all be used as distribution groups

        Security Groups:

        Can be used to manage permissions on shares and resources and can also be used as a distribution group

        Distribution Grous:

        Are used to send mails to a group of people. i.e. you might have a distribution group called IT with all the IT users accounts in. This way when you want to send a mail to only the IT members you dont have to select their name seperately from GAL (Global Address List) You can just select the distribution group and the mail will go to everyone in that list.

        have a read of this:
