On the Server(s) tab of the Assets page in the Security Center console, you can run security checks on a specific server to detect vulnerabilities, baseline risks, and webshells. You can also run security checks to collect asset fingerprints, such as information about ports, software, processes, accounts, and middleware. This topic describes how to run security checks on your servers.

Background information

Only the Anti-virus, Advanced, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions of Security Center support this feature. If you use the Basic edition, you must upgrade Security Center to the Anti-virus, Advanced, Enterprise, or Ultimate edition before you can use this feature. For more information about how to purchase and upgrade Security Center, see Purchase Security Center and Upgrade and downgrade Security Center. For more information about the features that each edition supports, see Features.

Notice If you run security checks on your server, Security Center detects vulnerabilities, baseline risks, and webshells, and collects asset fingerprints at the same time. In this case, the CPU utilization and memory usage of your server increase, which may affect your workloads. The security check may require 1 to 5 minutes. To prevent service interruptions, we recommend that you perform this operation during off-peak hours.
