A Security Build Review or a Host Hardening Assessment is a security audit against an operating system or a software configuration, helping ensure it meets industry standard good security practices. With the increase of virtualisation technologies (Docker / VMWare ESXi etc), organisations are replicating operating systems for servers, desktops and mobile devices across their whole network. From a risk prospective, taking time to ensure these images are secure helps prevent security issues being replicated site wide and helps reduce the risk of insecurely configured environments can allow unauthorised access and or data breach.
