There is a wealth of online security scanners available.  Many of them are trial offers to get you to sign up for a paid subscription of their service.

Below some of my favorite scanners that don't require you to sign-up:

Observatory by Mozilla (

Observatory is a simple tool that allows site operators to quickly assess not just if they are using these technologies, but also helps them identify how well they’re being used. It uses a simple grading system to provide near instant feedback on site improvements as they are made. To assist developers and administrators, Observatory also provides links to quality documentation that demonstrates how these technologies work.
