Lynis Enterprise is easy to use, extensive and suited to your security needs. It brings you back in control and decreases risk for your business and customers. Here are some answers to help you to get to know our services better.
Lynis is a software component to audit Unix based systems. Lynis Enterprise uses Lynis to gather data from machines. Additionally it has an administration interface, reporting, implementation plans, hardening guidance and more.
On the servers only our open source tool Lynis. All other parts are web based, therefore just a regular web browser will do. No exotic plugins needed!
Lynis supports 32 and 64-bits systems running Linux, macOS and Unix (AIX, HP-UX, Solaris).
At this moment Windows is not supported. Lynis runs only on Unix based systems.
No, simply one machine is enough. By using the Lynis Collector, all data can be gathered from the internal network. This Collector acts as a proxy and uploads data. Customers who prefer hosting the Lynis Enterprise solution internally, usually don't need the Collector. Internet access for receiving updates is in that case still applicable.
Lynis does an in-depth test, therefore needs root permissions (or sudo).
Sure! We have a demo page, which also includes the possibility to request a trial.
Lynis is our gift to the community and is used by thousands of companies and individuals. We have a "release often" policy and apply only small changes. Since Lynis is an auditing tool and does not change actual configurations, the risks are very low.
