Introducing the New Magento Security Scan Tool
October 25, 2017
Magento has rolled out a new security scan tool that enables Magento merchants to regularly monitor their sites and receive updates regarding known security risks, malware, and unauthorized access. Security Scan is a free service of Magento and can be run on any version of Magento Commerce (formerly Enterprise Edition) and Magento Open Source (formerly Community Edition).
Merchants will benefit from:
Insight into the real-time security status of their Magento store and how to fix potential vulnerabilities
Over 30 security tests to identify potential vulnerabilities, such as missing Magento patches, configuration issues, and failure to follow security best practices
Historical security reports of their Magento sites, so that they can track and monitor their progress over time
Scan result reports that clearly show which checks the site passed and failed and whether further action is required
Scheduling of scans for specific, recurring dates/times, and/or on-demand
Suggested remediation steps for each failed security test
Merchants and their teams, including authorized developers, can access the new tool directly within their Magento Account. And it is very easy to set up.
In the future, we’ll provide regular updates to the scanning tool as new Magento patches are made available. The scan is only available for our commerce products today, but we’re looking to extend security tools to additional Magento products later.
Our goal is to help merchants deliver the highest level of security for their Magento sites. Their customers expect it.
