The measure of your company’s security is not a static principle. As your company grows and develops, and new software and hardware is introduced, the original parameters that were implemented years ago will steadily develop new vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and gaps that could lead to greater threats down the road. IT security assessments in Houston, TX shed light on the current state of your network’s security, illuminating vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers.
There are a few different types of assessments that could be performed, each presenting their own unique insights into your security parameters. Since our founding, Broadleaf Group has always been a security solutions provider, making security matters a focal point of our company’s design. Our assessments provide your IT department with comprehensive insights into what threatens your company, how severe the gaps are, providing dynamic and secure reports, and ensuring your company is compliant with industry standards.
Reinforcing Your Security
Security parameters will naturally develop vulnerabilities as a natural course of their life cycle. Through misaligned code, updates that cover up old vulnerabilities, hidden backdoors, or any number of other threats, every company’s network will have their fair share of vulnerabilities affecting their systems. Rather than leave them be, ensuring your IT department is made fully aware of any potential danger helps develop preventative measures that protect your company’s data.
Our security solutions provide an increased level of visibility and overall protection over your network. By performing extensive IT security assessments, you will benefit from:
- Increased threat awareness
- Threat identification
- Improved preventative measures
- Educated employees
- Workflow optimization
- Increased collaboration and communication
Any vulnerabilities in your system affect more than just your IT department. The more you know about the structure of your network security parameters, the easier planning for future incursions and preventing catastrophic damage becomes.
How Our Engineers Help You
Our first step is to help your company determine the level of assessment you need. Many companies will be inclined to inquire about penetration testing, and while that reveals its own assortment of valuable information, it’s not always required. Invasive tests may not yield the results your company is actually looking for, which is why our engineers start off by working with your teams to discover what type of assessment is actually needed.
We offer a few different assessment options, including:
- Vulnerability assessments
- Risk assessments
- PEN testing
PEN testing is used to apply pressure to specific systems and test their capability to withstand a real cyberattack, but their scope is inherently limited. Our vulnerability and risk assessments, by comparison, offer a broad overview of your entire system infrastructure. They identify system vulnerabilities, and our engineers compile a comprehensive report with priority levels assigned for informed remediation plans.
The most important step in securing your data is by understanding where your attention is needed the most. While vulnerability and risk assessments may not be able to determine the severity of all weaknesses in your system, the information gleaned provides essential guidance for organizing your teams to close up gaps and optimize system performance.
Our engineers will work with you through every step of the IT security assessment in Houston, TX.
