This feature, known as the Security Advisor, is easy to handle and access. It runs security scans on a given server and then advises one about how to resolve any security issues that it possibly comes across.
It can be accessed in the Security Centre segment.
The moment one accesses the Security Advisor interface, it automatically runs a scan on the server. A list of issues will appear containing the following color-coded information –
Conveniently, most of the Alert boxes include a link to the particular WHM interface that allows one to resolve the issue at hand.
For example, If there is an issue relating to the ‘Brute Force Protection’ on the server, One will receive a Warning coded in red, containing a link to the respective WHM interface that enables one to trigger the server’s Brute Force Protection systems.
After following the suggested steps and resolving whatever issue may have cropped up one needs to Scan the server once more to check the effectiveness of actions taken. This can be done by simply selecting the Scan Again option and getting the statistics and the confirmation of the issues just resolved.
This feature is thus extremely efficient and quick and enables one to deal with potentially threatening security issues immediately and without delay, thereby ensuring that they do not proliferate and become potentially harmful to the respective server, permissions issues that may affect the smooth functioning of a server are also identified and addressed.
