When you want to secure mission-critical servers, the HelpSystems Security Scan is the place to start. The free Scan provides a snapshot of how your current system security compares to expert-developed benchmarks.

In just minutes, you’ll see where your security configuration is on track and where it’s at risk.

Cybersecurity has become a top business concern for organizations around the world. But you can’t harden your security unless you can identify and prioritize the vulnerabilities putting your systems at risk.

Compare Your Security Configuration to Proven Standards

The Security Scan leverages best practices developed by the non-profit Center for Internet Security—CIS Benchmarks. These configuration guidelines are curated by a global community of cybersecurity experts, whose goal is protecting systems against ever-changing threats.

A Security Scan is:

  • Quick—The Scan runs in just 10 minutes
  • Confidential—Only you see the results
  • Thorough—A Security Advisor helps you understand the current state of your system security
  • Clear—You'll understand where your system is secure and the areas that need work

You’ll find out where your system security currently stands, whether your system is at risk, and how to improve data protection.
