Satisfying regulatory requirements and uncovering your true risk profile.

Find your way with Assura’s Risk Assessment.

Every organization is unique, with distinct setup requirements and hurdles to overcome. Maximizing your funding at every point is essential because of the complexities involved and the usual budgetary constraints. This is why hitting your cybersecurity sweet spot is crucial in determining the right amount of security investment that matches your risk appetite. Often simply investing in off-the-shelf tools ends up not delivering what you need—sending you down the wrong road and wasting valuable resources in the process. With Assura guiding the way, this will not happen.

How we’ve helped to protect industries like yours.

Protecting a university’s network against both hackers and a student workforce.

A university approached Assura with a unique challenge that most other organizations don’t have. Because they employ students to help run various aspects of the school, they needed a way to ensure these work-study employees didn’t accidentally put the university’s data at risk.

Helping a Virginia municipality discover a dangerous backdoor.

With attacks on municipalities on the rise, a midsized county in Virginia knew it needed to improve its cybersecurity posture. The problem was they were not sure where to begin. So they enlisted our services to help them determine their strengths and vulnerabilities.

An IT team of one quickly takes control of 400 vulnerabilities.

Organizations are inundated with hundreds of thousands of vulnerabilities every year. After years of experience, we know most organizations can only patch about 1 in 10 (10%) vulnerabilities discovered in their environment based on resource capacity.
