Lynis Enterprise is a security solution for systems that run a flavor of Unix, like Linux, BSD, and macOS. It helps companies to perform daily security health scans in a timely manner. It can discover configuration issues, including vulnerable packages, missing best practices, and weak defaults. With actionable plans and reports, it helps you to get back on track for your compliance needs, IT audits, or better security defenses.

Lynis Enterprise uses the open source tool Lynis, so you know that you use battle-tested software.


Many companies have to comply with one or more regulations or standards. If you process credit cards, you might to be compliant with PCI DSS. In the healthcare industry, this would be HIPAA, where companies on the New York stock exchange will find themselves being regulated by SOx. Our solution helps to perform regular checks for Linux and other platforms.

Vulnerability management

Vulnerability scanning helps with detecting weaknesses in software. The typical flaw with this process is that often a game is performed similar to 'whack-a-mole'. The result is that many companies focus on removing weaknesses one by one, which results in a time-consuming and costly process.

So Lynis Enterprise is not a vulnerability scanning solution. The solution strives for preventing issues in the first place, combined with automation and early detection.
