Security auditing
Continuous security monitoring


Continous Monitoring

After solving any discovered weaknesses, continuous security monitoring will detect (unauthorized) changes. This way your efforts are safeguarded, preventing your security defenses from falling back.


Use reporting to spot any room for improvement. Information security is an ongoing process and reporting is your tool to improve your defenses even further.


Embed information security, keep control over your network and expand security awareness.


Integrate your existing CMDB with Lynis Enterprise, software configuration tool or SIEM solution. Automation is the key to save time and keep systems in the desired state.


Easy compliance with baselines, and predefined sets for HIPAA, PCI or other compliance needs.


Stay in control with the dashboard functionality. With one quick glance at the dashboard, it becomes easy again to target and focus your efforts.
