Security Center:Use the security check feature

Last Updated:Jun 01, 2023

If you want to detect vulnerabilities, baseline risks, or webshells on a server and collect the asset fingerprints of the server, you can use the security check feature. This topic describes how to run security checks on your server.

Background information

When you run a quick security check on your server, Security Center detects vulnerabilities, baseline risks, and webshells on the server, and collects the asset fingerprints of the server. When the security check is running, the CPU utilization and memory usage of your server increase, which may affect your workloads. In most cases, a quick security check takes 1 to 5 minutes to complete. To prevent service interruptions, we recommend that you perform this operation during off-peak hours.


Only the Advanced, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions of Security Center support this feature. For more information about how to purchase and upgrade Security Center, see Purchase Security Center and Upgrade and downgrade Security Center.


  1. Log on to the Security Center console. In the top navigation bar, select the region of the asset that you want to protect. The following regions are supported: China and Outside China.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Assets > Host.

  3. On the Server tab of the Host page, select one or more servers on which you want to run a security check from the server list, and click Security check below the server list.

  4. In the Security Check dialog box, select check items and click OK. In the Note message, click OK.


    A security check takes 1 to 5 minutes to complete. Wait until the check is complete. Do not perform repeated checks.

    After the security check is complete, the check results are updated to the server details page in the Security Center console.
