  • Receive suggestions based on best practices to help resolve issues.
  • Schedule security scan to run weekly, daily, or on demand.
  • Run over 21,000 security tests to help identify potential malware.
  • Access historical security reports that track and monitor the progress of your sites.
  • Access the scan report that shows successful and failed checks, with any recommended actions.

The Security scan tool is available for free from the dashboard of your Commerce account. For technical information, see Go live and launch in our developer documentation.
