How can OPSWAT Security Score benefit your Windows PC
OPSWAT Security Score for Windows lets users know the security status of installed security applications on their computer. The app uses OPSWAT’s OESIS Framework, a development toolkit for detection and management of antivirus, antiphishing, backup, patch management, firewall, public file sharing, hard disk encryption and many other types of third party applications and then uses this information to generate your score.
The app is portable so it doesn’t need to be installed to run. Once downloaded, launch it and it will scan your computer in less than a minute for a complete of all installed security applications plus Windows’ built-in security settings like firewall settings and so on. After the scan is complete, the app will let you evaluate your PC security settings by providing the score in seven different sections and also in the form of a pie graph. If everything is working fine, the graph will be completely green.
If your score is too low in any section, determined by the amount of red on the pie chart, the app will provide recommendations on how to improve both the score and the security of your system.
OPSWAT Security Score is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 and requires at least Internet Explorer 8. The app is available for download for free. For the price of free, we highly recommend it for all Windows users to ensure safety and security of their data.
