Everyone likes free tools and software, especially when it can save you a lot of trouble and headaches down the road. That’s why we are currently offering our Full Network and System Security Assessment freely with no obligation. It is a customized tool that ensures your network is secure and not vulnerable to hacking attacks like those reported this past week.
Here are some of the highlights, although the tool is even more comprehensive than I have space to write:
Vulnerability Scanning: Scans multiple platforms (Windows, Mac OS, Linux) across your entire network, including virtual machines, to analyze your network’s security setup and status. Be sure to correct any threats detected to prevent hacking attempts.
Ensures Anti-Virus Protection: You probably have virus software installed, but is it working and up-to-date? This tool checks for supported security applications, including anti-virus and anti-spyware, to makes sure they are updated with the latest definitions, and that the right features are enabled.
Scans for all the Issues: Custom scans can also include checks for open ports, unused local users and groups that should be disabled or removed; blacklisted and malicious applications; dangerous USB devices, and other suspicious activity.
Get the Right Patch: When the tool completes the scan, it doesn’t stop there. It also provides you with the ability to download and install patches across your network to plug security holes across different Microsoft operating systems.
There’s a lot more — and we hope you take advantage to keep your network secure. At the end of each audit, you’ll receive a detailed report. If you have any questions, you can always call DataSource for help.
