When calculating IT Security vulnerabilities, internal assessments often don't tell the whole story.

As you work diligently to mitigate the myriad of threats to IT security, a security assessment can provide the critical insight and data you need to develop the most effective cybersecurity strategy.

By identifying and quantifying risks and documenting the effectiveness of existing controls, a security assessment enables you to make smarter decisions about your current technology, potential new investments and the optimal approach to enterprise risk management based on your environment and business goals.

Performing a security assessment not only requires proven methodologies but an extensive and in-depth understanding of the security space. When your IT team lacks the expertise, resources or bandwidth to manage your security assessment initiatives, the security professionals at Scarlett have the know-how and expertise to fill the gaps.
