User defined risk scoring

SystemScan AIX allows you to edit the risk messages and decide which are the most important thus enabling you to identify potential audit or security issues, and to prioritise their remediation. Every business now faces different security challenges and is subject to the security rules and regulations that relate to their industry and activities. For example PCI-DSSv3 comes into force by 31/12/14 and anyone that handles or processes cardholder data must be fully compliant, and be able to demonstrate this to their auditors.

Highlight the usage of SMT (Simultaneous Multiple Threading)

We added more than twenty tests designed to highlight the usage of SMT (Simultaneous Multiple Threading) and how it can be used to boost the efficiency and performance of your system and workloads. This is in response to several questions regarding what the scripts can tell you about the efficiency of your system, and suggest improvements.

Check installations and upgrades

SystemScan checks for “alt_rootvg” and “multibos” installations because incomplete or unwanted installations and upgrades waste a lot of disk space and can rick the stability of the system.
