    Article Summary

    Secure DX identifies and remediates security issues on your devices to help minimize risk to your environment.

    To detect security issues on your devices, you create Templates that scan devices for a specific set of issues at a set interval. After Templates have scanned your devices, you can see details about the detected security issues in your environment using the various pages in Secure DX.

    In addition to detecting security issues, Secure DX can also remediate them. For example, Secure DX can update applications when a new version is available. You can configure a Template to automatically remediate issues once detected, or you can manually initiate the remediation later.

    Secure DX calculates security scores for issues, devices, apps, and users so you can quickly identify the highest security risks to your environment and prioritize remediation.
