The Endpoint Assessment Test

The Endpoint Assessment Test is a free tool that scans a computer and assesses whether it is a security risk to your organisation. A single scan checks that:

  • your Microsoft service pack is the current one for your operating system
  • your Microsoft patches are all up to date
  • anti-virus protection is installed, running and current
  • a personal firewall is installed and running

The Endpoint Assessment Test checks for over 600 patches, 28 anti-virus applications, and 22 firewall applications. It uses the Sophos ActiveX dissolvable agent to scan in passive "report-only" mode. Once the scan is done, the agent presents the results.

The Sophos Anti-Rootkit

Our free software, Sophos Anti-Rootkit scans, detects and removes any rootkit that is hidden on your computer using advanced rootkit detection technology.

Rootkits can lie hidden on computers and remain undetected by anti-virus software. Although new rootkits can be prevented from infecting the system, if you had any rootkits before you installed your anti-virus, they may never be revealed.

Removing rootkits without compromising system integrity is particularly challenging and needs to be done with care.

The Application Discovery Tool

Unauthorised applications can have a significant impact on the day-to-day running of an organisation. In a recent Sophos poll, 86% of respondents said they would like to block activities such as instant messaging and peer-to-peer file sharing.

Use the Sophos Application Discovery Tool to quickly perform a scan and find all the applications installed on your network, both legitimate and unwanted. The tool can be run without uninstalling or deactivating your current anti-virus software.
