At Resolute, we always suggest businesses get a vulnerability assessment before investing in other security products or services. A vulnerability assessment will scan your network, connected devices, firewalls, antivirus policies, and other security measures and then output a report detailing areas of risk to your business. You can then use this data to prioritize which items your team should remediate first based on risk to business, effort required to remediate, and overall cost. This allows you to close gaps and mitigate hidden threats to your business. You can partner with a security consultant who has access to a vulnerability assessment tool and expertise or purchase one to use in-house if it makes sense for your business. A vulnerability assessment is a great starting point for investing in cybersecurity and can curtail into developing your IT security roadmap and overall security strategy.

I’m recommending them because they provide all of the security solutions you’d expect (anti-virus, recovery solutions, etc.) but they also provide dark web monitoring which typically isn’t available in small business packages.
