Sherlock is a security scanner and monitor to keep your site and CMS secure. An essential plugin for any site and CMS that stores sensitive or important data.
Sherlock checks for security vulnerabilities on your site such as folder and file permissions, cross-origin resource sharing, cross-site request forgery, HTTP response headers, etc. and tells you how to fix them.
Sherlock ensures that your site is forcing encrypted connections both on the front-end and back-end so as to secure user data and credentials.
Sherlock checks all of the Craft CMS configuration settings on your site to ensure that they are properly configured and safe to use in a production site.
Sherlock runs a series of tests to ensure that your site is correctly updated and will warn you about critical security updates to the CMS, plugins and the PHP version running on your server.
Receive an instant email notification if your site fails a security scan. A control panel alert in the CMS also notifies you of a failed security scan.
Easily schedule security scans to automatically run daily or weekly on your site with cron jobs.

View the full details of your site’s last scan, including failed tests and warnings. For each test you can view more details and relevant documentation. You can also view the full security scan history of your site over time.
