Vulnerability Assessment

Services » Project & Advisory » Vulnerability Assessment

The first step in remediating vulnerabilities is determining if and where they exist.

Identification and prioritization.

Need to know where you are missing patches? How about where a misconfiguration was introduced? Assura can help you answer those types of questions and more. When our team conducts vulnerability assessments for your organization, we aren’t just running a tool and sending you the results. We’re reviewing the results, ruling out false positives, contextualizing, and prioritizing the results. All so your team can optimize your remediation efforts and come out far more secure on the other side.

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.
