Vulnerability Assessment

A vulnerability assessment evaluates a company's systems and networks to determine whether they have been compromised or if any other weaknesses may allow hackers access. This type of testing can help businesses identify potential threats before they become a problem so they can take steps toward fixing them quickly. It also allows them to test their existing security measures against new vulnerabilities as new attack methods are developed.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Vulnerability Assessment

Vulnerability assessments provide SMBs with valuable information about how well protected their business is, allowing for more informed decisions when deciding where resources should go in terms of IT infrastructure improvements. A thorough assessment will also alert companies if specific procedures need changing due to outdated security measures.
