Vulnerability Assessment

Improve Security with a Vulnerability Assessment

As a critical tool for information security management, a vulnerability assessment can spot the weaknesses in your security defenses before an attacker can exploit them. Your adversaries are constantly striving to innovate their methods as they look for new ways to breach your defenses. A regular vulnerability assessment can help you be proactive in uncovering and addressing security flaws and refining your cyber security strategy to remediate them.

But a vulnerability assessment is only as good as the security experts who design and execute it. An effective vulnerability assessment requires proven methodologies created by security professionals with extensive and up-to-the-minute knowledge of the latest threats and the skills and technology available to mitigate them.

When you lack the internal resources and want an information risk management partner to perform a thorough vulnerability assessment, Optiv provides an IT security team with unparalleled expertise and experience.
