Securance’s hardened network assessment will measure your network security posture and generate a customized report in less than a minute.

The assessment is divided into eight major sections based on the typical structure of an enterprise network and the security measures we recommend.

Each section contains up to 20 questions, categorized and weighted by their degree of importance to the organization’s overall network security posture:

  • essential
  • moderately security-focused
  • extremely security-focused
