Is Security Scan Safe?

Before requesting a Security Scan, you might wonder if the scan is safe—or if the Security Scan itself poses a risk to your data. The process is completely secure, and HelpSystems has performed thousands of scans for organizations around the world. To put your mind at ease, here are some more details about a Security Scan entails.

Security Scan leverages a proprietary, PC-based tool that was written by HelpSystems specifically for the purpose of this scan. We never request access to any network or server throughout this process and no application data is ever accessed. The program does not make any changes to any servers—except for the program’s installation and subsequent removal.

The Security Scan program runs in just one or two minutes, and it can be run on a production partition without any impact or interruption to business processes.

As a cybersecurity company, HelpSystems takes the safety and security of your systems very seriously. If you have any questions about how the Security Scan program works, contact us and we can provide more details.
