Security Meter allows you to monitor and gauge how effectively you have configured various built-in application security features. The Security Meter displays a security score in percentage based on the number of security configurations that have been enabled against the total number of available security configurations. Based on the score, your application security is categorized into one of the following four security levels:
Unsecured: This level is displayed when the score is less than 50%. This means you have configured less than 50% of the available built-in security settings.
Weak Security: This level is displayed when the security score is between 50 and 70%. This means you have configured between 50 to 70% of the available built-in security settings.
Moderate Security: This level is displayed when the security score is between 70 and 90%. This means you have configured between 70 to 90% of the available built-in security settings.
Highly Secure: This level is displayed when the security score is over 90%. This means you have configured more than 90% of the available built-in security settings. The security meter can be accessed by SDAdmins or SDOrgAdmins from Global Settings > General Settings > Security Settings.
The list of available security settings can also be accessed directly from the security meter by clicking View all security configurations.
Based on the setting, when you click an item on the list, you will either be taken to the corresponding configuration page or be shown an appropriate configuration popup. You can make the necessary changes there and save it.
