Disk encryption adds an extra layer of security by encrypting a computer's entire hard drive, requiring a password before it can boot. This ensures unauthorized third parties can't read the contents of the drive.

The UISO scanners attempt to discover vulnerabilities in your Web site or machine

The Unified Compliance Framework (UCF) is a complex database with multiple elements that reflect over 400 authority documents and are beneficial as stand-alone references, or as intertwining templates that address requirements through the linking of sources to harmonized controls.
