Security Health Check

Gallagher Security Health Check (SHC) is a free tool designed to help you identify and understand vulnerabilities that could exist within your Gallagher security system.

SHC is designed to make it quick and easy for you to carry out system checks at any time, as part of regular maintenance and to ensure there are no unintended consequences to Command Centre configuration changes over time.

Automated security audit

In an industry-first, SHC provides an automated method to check your security system for potential risks without the time and cost of manual audits - enabling you to carry out audits more often.

Automation allows the SHC utility to quickly check and cross reference system data and settings thoroughly and reliably. Some of the system tests wouldn’t be included in a manual audit as they would be overly time consuming and difficult for a person to perform. Automation reduces human error in the process, ensuring high quality results that can be measured over time.


Security Health Check test areas

Security Health Check runs tests across four key areas: Hardware, Configuration, Users & Server Settings. The utility runs through a varied and extensive list of checks, including:


  • Old hardware that is no longer supported.
  • Manage hardware obsolescence.


  • Detect potential configuration issues.
  • Check configurations that allow use of old technologies which use weak encryption. 


  • Blank, default and predictable passwords used by operators.
  • Audit user code length and users with advanced privileges and default user PINs. 

Server settings

  • Check the type of account services are running as (i.e. local system or network service.)

Easy to understand

Based on SHC utility test data, we generate a simple and succinct graphical summary report that assesses the severity of threats and recommends specific actions that can be taken to mitigate the risk. The easy-to-understand report provides insights into the most significant vulnerabilities and prioritizes the risks, supporting communication with management and decision-makers. 

Identify and respond to security vulnerabilities

SHC identifies your system vulnerabilities, assesses the severity of the threat, and provides specific recommendations to mitigate the risk and ensure correct system configuration. An overall security rating is calculated, making it easy to compare the latest audit with previous results to track progress over time and better plan system upgrades.
