Our Approach

At eSentire, our cybersecurity vulnerability assessments scan your entire infrastructure – servers, databases, endpoints and web applications – to discover security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by cyber-attackers.

Leveraging intelligence from our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) platform, we identify exploits used to bypass traditional security controls and prioritize mitigation procedures that other vendors cannot.

Customized Analytics and Reporting

To ensure you won’t be overwhelmed navigating through the vast amount of information coming from the scan, our certified technical testers act as an extension of your team, analyzing the results and meeting with your team to discuss the findings in order to prioritize risk, and the subsequent remediation steps, based on your environment.

What Capabilities are We Testing


What does a Vulnerability Assessment Help You Answer?

What points of entry are we vulnerable to?

Are we vulnerable to a new or existing threat?

Where should we concentrate our patching efforts to reduce risk?

Are we patching/hardening effectively?
