Uncover Weak Spots In Your Network Security
Do you know where the current pain points in your network are? If you’re not certain how effective your current cybersecurity solution is, it’s time that you set up a network security assessment with I.T. Works.

What’s The Difference Between A Vulnerability Assessment And A Penetration Test?
Although both are critical for determining the overall health of your technology environment, there are specific factors that set vulnerability assessments apart from a penetration test.
- Vulnerability Assessment – Rapidly becoming a more common (and critical) practice for small businesses, vulnerability scans identify known weaknesses in a targeted, focused evaluation. A lot of smaller companies have a number of issues with their environment that they otherwise might not have been aware of. Whether this is unapplied patches, outdated software, or weak spots in applications they use, there are numerous areas of vulnerability that might be uncovered in a security audit.
- Penetration Testing – Once you’ve determined where exactly those vulnerabilities in your network are, it’s time to determine how they might be targeted in a cyberattack. With penetration testing, I.T. Works takes the data we’ve collected from our initial vulnerability assessment and attempts to exploit areas that might be problematic for your business.
Identified risks can set you back significantly if there isn’t a plan in place to suppress and remediate them. A penetration test is a great tool for companies that still trying to flesh out how efficient their cybersecurity is so that they can take stock of where they’re currently falling short.
Customized Security Solution
Once we’ve gone through your network, identified weak spots, and tested exactly how easily they can be exploited by a potential threat, it’s time to start planning for the future. Your security strategy needs to be optimized to correct the existing issues with your current solution and to set you up for future success and keep you safe moving forward.
Whether it’s through updating your security compliance, increasing your email security, or training your employees on what to look for when it comes to a cyberthreat, our job at I.T. Works is to clearly define your strategy for years to come. We take the time to truly understand where it is that you need extra support—from there, we custom tailor our plan to fit your exact needs, budget, and security deficiencies.
