Lynis Enterprise Suite is a complete software solution for security auditing, compliance and system hardening. It includes Lynis in the core.

Main focus of Lynis is to detect vulnerabilities and configuration management weaknesses.

Lynis performs an in-depth local scan on the system and is therefore much more thorough than network based vulnerability scanners.

It starts with the bootloader and goes up to installed software packages. After the analysis it provides the administrator with discovered findings, including hints to further secure the system.

Our security tool is already used by many system administrators all over the world. Auditing Linux and Unix systems has never been so easy!

The main goal of the product is to help you measuring your security efforts.

Lynis Enterprise provides the answer to what and how to improve your security defenses. It does so by using in-depth auditing and provide guidance during implementation.

The management interface allows you to quickly determine where to focus your time.

With additional support and tools, like an API, integration within your IT environment is easy.

Additional features: plugins, central management, web based interface, API, dashboard, compliance checking, extensive reporting options, and hardening snippets.
