Abaxio Managed Security

How can we help you today?

Abaxio team members possess the most comprehensive security certifications available:

One of the most vital components in a comprehensive, top-down approach to cybersecurity is the Penetration Test, and for obvious reasons: Untested promises of a network’s resilience are no longer sufficient. Rather, trust is established by means of highly skilled but thwarted attempts to penetrate a network. Penetration testing identifies organizational weaknesses the same way an attacker would—by hacking it. This enables organizations to better understand and ultimately minimize the risk associated with IT assets.

The overall goal of a product penetration test is to uncover software vulnerabilities, demonstrate the impact of the weaknesses, and provide recommendations for mitigation.

Today, creating a truly secure IT infrastructure requires access to highly specialized knowledge, intelligence, and expertise in order to stay at least one step ahead of the evolving risks. Because Abaxio is an authority on information security, the MSP can leverage our subject matter expertise to solve these challenging business problems to deliver a higher level of customer service to its customer base.
