Request a Vulnerability Analysis to Ensure Your Business is Secure
What is a Vulnerability Analysis?
ACT’s proprietary Vulnerability Analysis identifies where your network is vulnerable, where your organization has security gaps, and the level of risk each one carries. This security risk consultation includes ACT’s best practices for fixing issues before they cause problems, ensuring your network is as secure as it can be.
How it Works
Highly qualified security engineers trained in the latest cybersecurity and risk trends will perform your Vulnerability Analysis. They work quickly and efficiently and complete the entire process remotely.
After an initial discovery conversation, our security engineers will complete a detailed analysis, identifying all risks to your network and data. We then review our findings with you and provide actionable and achievable recommendations.

Common Misconceptions About Security
I have a firewall; why should I worry? It may not be enough. Typically, a firewall alone cannot provide enough protection against today’s cyber threats. A firewall is necessary, but a more comprehensive security solution is needed to adequately protect data while continuing to support your team’s desire for “anywhere, anytime access.”
Employees working from home have been issued secured laptops, so there shouldn’t be a problem. Wrong. Every home office represents a tremendous security risk. If your employee’s home network or computer is hacked or infected with a virus, your entire network could be compromised. Viruses quickly travel through networks, and hackers can easily gain unfettered access to every piece of your data. More than 53% of employees have no idea if their home networks are secure or if their software is up-to-date.
All our computers have antivirus software installed, so they’re protected. Not necessarily. Security protocols must extend to every device that has access to your network. That includes mobile devices, smartphones, and peripherals, such as scanners. Are you confident every device has been updated?
We’re using a highly-rated video conferencing platform, so I assume it’s secure. Video conferencing platforms can be hijacked – and are. While a “zoom-bomber” might be embarrassing and disturbing, an undetected intruder is a nightmare for corporate security and individual privacy. According to The Washington Post, thousands of private recordings of Zoom meetings have been discovered on the open web.
We have an IT guy who updates our computers and fixes issues, so our network should be secure. Maybe. Not all IT firms have returned to full capacity, resulting in security gaps. Also, not all IT firms run proactive maintenance scans to ensure networks are defended properly; instead, they react to problems after they occur. Are you 100% certain your network and systems are being monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? Has every device been updated and patched? 60% of breaches involved vulnerabilities for which a patch was available but not applied. ACT’s security engineers and technology teams have never wavered from their 24/7/365 monitoring and proactive maintenance commitment.
How Widespread Are Security Breaches Among Small and Medium-Sized Businesses?
71% of breaches are financially motivated, and hackers greatly profit when they sell your company’s data on the Dark Web. You store credit card numbers, bank account numbers, identifying information about your customers, confidential patents, and more on your network. They are all of great value to a cybercriminal.
Here are some disturbing statistics to be aware of:
- Data breaches exposed 4.1 billion records in the first half of 2019 (and the numbers are rising).
- 94% of malware was delivered by email in 2019.
- One of the top malicious email attachment types is .doc, the extension used by Microsoft Word. Most employees say they would not hesitate to open these files.
- 60% of breaches involved vulnerabilities for which a patch was available but not applied.
- Attacks on IoT devices (any device connected to the internet) tripled in the first half of 2019.
- 61% of organizations have experienced a security incident in the past five years.
