While browsing the Shavlik.com website I stumbled on a small but powerful hidden away gem in the pages named VMware Security Advisor.
Are you aware of all your security risks? Security Advisor provides you with the ability to perform a no-cost security scan on your machine, domain, or IP range. It instantly reports the following critical information, all ranked by severity:
- A snapshot of your environment including the number of missing patches, missing security patches and the average number of missing patches per machine as compared to the community
- Systems Center ranks machines by severity and identifies the machines requiring patches
- Software Center shows the software by vendor as well as the software titles requiring patches
- Patch Center indicates the percent of products missing patches not covered by WSUS as well the number of missing patches and number of vulnerable machines
- Community Center identifies how the security of your IT environment compares to the community
