Defense against audits and attacks.
A policy anyone in government can get behind.

Whether your entity is state-level
or locality, we’re your
cybersecurity partner.

At Assura, we understand the importance of maintaining compliance and fending off attacks in the public sector. For government agencies, it’s critical not to lose the trust of their constituents. That can happen if you end up on the news due to ransomware or some other type of cyber threat. If attacked, your organization can be held captive with no end in sight. When you partner with Assura, those issues are no longer a concern you have to address on your own. We’re the experts with a proven track record of protecting a wide range of government entities.

  • Solutions are right-sized for the organization and the resources available

  • Guaranteed compliance even if some regulations are at odds with one another
  • No need to put out services to bid, we have contract vehicles that are open to your sector
