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.

Education
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.

Government
Delivering cybersecurity solutions to 11 Virginia government localities at one time.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) challenged the Commonwealth of Virginia with helping to secure elections and making government localities cyber secure. Assura was approached by nearly a dozen together needing to overcome the same challenge in the same timeframe, yet each with its unique path to reaching success.

Business
ProDefense™ XDR: Quickly securing a global company's all-new virtual data call center.

A U.S. government contractor tapped a global company that specialized in workforce mobilization and staffing to create and staff a call center. Typically, this would not have been a significant challenge. However, this happened at the peak of the COVID-19 global pandemic, which meant the data center needed to be 100% remote while still being 100% compliant with Federal cybersecurity regulations — seemingly incompatible requirements. Assura had the solution.
