Today's modern security threats not only endanger businesses and critical data, but can permanently damage a company's reputation.
Businesses must protect themselves against phishing, ransomware, viruses, malware, social engineering, and a myriad of threats designed to destroy data and defraud companies.
To combat those threats, businesses must employ a broad spectrum of technology solutions to protect their businesses, but often times a security assessment is necessary to identify what vulnerabilities exist and how to address them.
In addition, nearly every business is required to conduct a network security assessment, either to meet regulatory compliance or simply to fulfill the requirements of their cyber-security insurance policy.

Choosing the proper security testing methodology is key to crafting a security strategy that includes the necessary elements to protect your business.
Business are often confused about the difference between "Penetration Testing" and "Vulnerability Testing," in hopes of simply understanding the risks they face.
Penetration Testing is commonly pursued when a company has public-facing web applications and need to determine if their website, application, or marketplace can be exploited by attackers.
The focus of Penetration Testing is on improving the underlying code of these applications to keep transactions safe and secure.
For most small and mid-sized businesses, a Vulnerability Assessment is the desired engagement.
Vulnerability Assessments identify gaps in a firm's security framework, such as missing updates and patches, improperly configured technology solutions, and missing security policies that may threaten the business, while providing a path towards remediating those vulnerabilities and improving the overall security equation.
This is the most common type of security assessment, and is typically requested when trying to meet cyber security insurance requirements and compliance guidelines such as HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR.
