Microsoft recently added a new audit tool to its suite of tools to help companies track security breaches.
This new tool is called “Security Checker,” and it allows companies to send a “security audit” to Microsoft.
But before you start sending out an audit, you should be familiar with the basics of how it works.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Microsoft Security Checker tool.
What does it do?
Microsoft’s Security Checkout tool uses Microsoft’s Microsoft Security Intelligence Toolkit (MSI) to help you evaluate the security of your systems.
The tool is designed to be “automated” by Microsoft, so you’ll need to download the MSI to use it.
Once you have the MSI, you can then use it to view the information it collects about your systems and to identify and remove security threats.
Microsoft recommends that you use the Security Checking Tool to help protect yourself against the following threats:An unauthorized person, including an employee of a company that you are not authorized to access, or anyone using your computer, network, or network equipment, to:*Use a device to access Microsoft information, or to modify or delete Microsoft data.
This can include but is not limited to:Microsoft Office documents, photos, videos, and other data stored on your PC or in Microsoft products.
Microsoft Office files and files on your hard drive.
Microsoft Office files, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.
Microsoft SkyDrive data.
Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint files.
Microsoft Access data.
Microsoft Outlook data.
Other Microsoft services that are not part of your Microsoft account.
Microsoft Cloud Services, such a Exchange, SQL Server, and Exchange Online databases.
Microsoft Azure services.
Other types of Microsoft products, such Microsoft Exchange and Office 365.
Microsoft products that you’ve purchased from Microsoft, such Office 365, Office Web Apps, and Microsoft Lync.
Microsoft Services, like Outlook, Word, and Excel.
Microsoft services that you have installed on your system, such Exchange Online, Lync, and Office Mobile.
Microsoft’s support site provides more details on the tool.
How do I send an audit?
Microsoft will use your Security Checked documents and data to help identify and report on security threats to your systems, and it will also use your security audit to identify potential security risks in your software and data.
You can send an inspection by using the Security Audit button on your Microsoft Services tab in Microsoft Security Tools, or by emailing Microsoft Support.
Microsoft will then review your audit to determine if it needs to be reported, and then it will send an email to you.
Microsoft will not publish your audit information publicly, but you can download it.
You’ll need an Internet connection to send an MSI, and you’ll also need to use a valid Microsoft account to send the audit.
Microsoft also requires that you verify that you’re a valid recipient of the audit, and that you understand the risks involved.

Do I have to send my audit to Microsoft?
Microsoft requires that your security audits be sent to Microsoft before they can be posted publicly.
If you don’t know how to use Microsoft’s new Microsoft Security Audit tool, here’s a quick video to show you how.
If you send your audit, Microsoft will ask you to verify that your Microsoft Account is up to date, and if you have a valid email address, it will verify that Microsoft Account.
If your audit is not approved, Microsoft may send a message to your email address indicating that you may have missed the opportunity to send your report.
The message will say that your audit was not approved and you will need to send it again.
Microsoft has a dedicated page for sending an audit.
If your audit isn’t approved, you’ll get an email with a link to Microsoft’s email management portal, where you can send a response.
You’ll also be asked to confirm your email password, and to verify your identity before Microsoft will send the report.
