Although you may trust your antivirus' ability to protect the computer against malicious software and various types of malware, there are still ways you could be exposed to virus infection. Furthermore, the same goes for your firewall, which can leave the system open to all sorts of threats if left unchecked for a longer period of time.
Verify your computer's security level
Security Auditor is a software utility designed to provide you with a way to test out the strength of your system security, by performing a few checks on the antivirus, online shield, UAC and router protection. Thus, you can make sure that you are safe from malware threats and detect any possible holes in your security layers.
To achieve this, the application exposes the programs responsible for keeping your computer protected to a few harmless files, in order to test their ability to recognize and block the threats. Once the test is completed, you can view a few statistics regarding every component, as well as a graph depicting the calculated security strength.
Check whether the UAC mode is enabled or not
The User Account Control (UAC) function provided by the operating system is there to stop unauthorized guests from bringing modifications to your computer, such as disable various features or install new software. Security Auditor is able to test whether the UAC mode is enabled, by making sure no one can take control of your system using third party applications.
Additionally, it can also verify your router's protection level, to assess the possibility of it being accessed by other people as well. Hence, you can assure yourself that no one can take advantage of your Internet bandwidth and strengthen the router password, in case it is proven to be too weak and easy to guess.
A simple security tester
In the end, the application may not provide you with a wide array of features, but it does achieve its purpose, by informing you about any eventual leaks in your system's security. Furthermore, the simple and intuitive interface makes it very easy for anyone to make use of the application with just a few mouse clicks.
