Does any service exist - run by unbiased, independant security experts - which can analyse a users list of installed security software / settings and advise whether they could possibly strengthen certain aspects of their setup ?

 

There are many different types of anti-this-that-and-the-other available today making it very confusing for the regular user to understand exactly what each piece of security software actually does and consequently whether, on their system, certain areas are being neglected, or perhaps using numerous software solutions which in fact perform the same function.

 

Perhaps this advice service already exists ?

 

Thanks in advance.

This is a fair attempt to check your system, it has been around for many years.  Some like it some don't, I think it gives you an idea of what your system may be vulnerable too.  There may be others wait for more input.
