Security company Comodo has added a remote vulnerability auditing service to its portfolio of free security tools.

HackerGuardian performs scans on Internet- connected devices and generates reports detailing the required fixes or available patches to resolve any vulnerabilities it finds.

The company said it offers two types of scans: a "safe, non destructive scan" as well as a more thorough version that "simulates a real life hacker attack." After creating an account, users collect a free license that enables them to scan a single IP for a web server, network server, desktop computer or other Internet-connected device.

Following completion of the test, users receive a notification email linking to a diagnostic report detailing any vulnerabilities that were found. Each report ranks discovered threats by severity and provides links to associated patches and solutions.
