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.

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.

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.
