Independent, Unbiased, technically-qualified security assessments

Did you know that nearly 20 new security vulnerabilities are discovered every day? Vulnerability scanning uses a variety of tools and techniques to examine your changing network for security gaps and misconfigurations. Regular vulnerability scanning is a critical element of successful information security programs. It is also required by merchants accepting credit card payments.

Sikich enjoys the privilege of working with leading payment card, financial, restaurant, hospitality, health care, and educational organizations from around the world. We assist you with information security consulting, fraud management, risk mitigation, and vulnerability detection and prevention.

Sikich security experts handle almost any conceivable assignment to do with digital security and data protection, including credit card data (PCI DSS), patient data (HIPAA), bank account numbers (GLBA), service provider reviews (SOC 1/2/3), and intellectual property. We specialize in compliance audits, penetration tests, computer security assessments, and computer forensic investigations.

How Sikich Delivers Vulnerability Scanning Services

Whether your business is a large corporation with multiple network blocks or a small company with only a single dynamic IP address, you’ll find our vulnerability scanning easy, effective, and affordable. You can log into the Sikich Compliance and Vulnerability Management Portal to securely view risks and threats against your network as well as your scheduled vulnerability scans.

Results and corrective recommendations are risk-ranked based on priority and provided in both summary and technically detailed formats, appropriate for executives and IT managers. As a user of the service, you can take advantage of email alerts, downloadable reports, graphs, trend analyses, resource tools, and real-time control over running scans to maximize your ability to respond to threats and secure your network.

Because we don’t expect you to become an information security expert, we offer personal, interactive support both before you start scanning and after your scan has finished. Our support experts work with you to provide guidance and help you interpret and analyze your report.
