How does this tool work?
The software works by reviewing copies
of key files from your system. You supply the files to the PC and so
you control what is happening on your system. AZScan reviews the files
on a standalone PC, writes reports and you choose which findings and
recommendations to act upon.
Does any software run on the system being tested?
No. AZScan is completely non-intrusive. There
are no executables to be installed on your systems and so nothing that
can slow performance or damage the system. The systems you are reviewing
can even be in another country.
How many different operating systems can be
The three categories of OS are Unix, OS400 and
VMS but within these there are over 100 variations and releases which
can be handled by AZScan. Currently the variations include:
118 - Linux, Solaris, AIX and many more
- OS400 15
As new versions are released,
we update the software to take account of the new security settings
that are introduced.
And how many tests does
- AZScan does 53
- AZScan does 93
- AZScan does 22
These figures are increasing all the time.
I only have Unix systems and don't need all
the iSeries and VMS parts.
Don't worry. This is an integrated package and
you don't need to even look at the other parts of the software.
