It's a number of tests. Start with the Shields Up test, it will show you how visible your system is on the net, if you have any open ports and if you are surfing in Stealth mode.

However, that's just the Firewall - you can't test how good your AV software is, or your anti-spyware/malware - you'll need to rely on professional test houses, who feed it with reams of viruses to see how well it detects them.
