Last month, in December, we decided to take advantage of a quieter month to make some bigger changes on our database and build a foundation for a number of new features.

Today we’re introducing a great new Hardenize feature—public dashboards. They are a great way to apply Hardenize’s complete assessment capabilities to a group of hosts and get a good understanding (quickly!) of what their security is like.
