Introducing Appurity’s endpoint security assessment

Appurity is a Cylance partner. We work closely with the experts at Cylance to deliver endpoint security assessments for organisations of all sizes, across a wide range of industries.

Our endpoint security assessment is your first step towards AI-powered preventative protection across your entire organisation.

You urgently need a security assessment if:

You have no defence against zero-day attacks

You don’t have the resources to effectively monitor and remedy potential threats around the clock

There are already threats in your environment that you have no visibility of

What do we assess?

Firstly, our endpoint security experts will carry out a thorough investigation of your current endpoint estate. Then we’ll determine whether your existing security controls – including traditional antivirus systems – are providing adequate protection. In addition, we’ll identify any Dark Web activity associated with your organisation’s domain.

What will your organisation receive?

  • Full report including the results of internal and external health-checks
  • View of administrator tools and their location in your IT environment
  • Visibility of your most at-risk devices based on threats discovered
  • Visibility of any USB storage devices plugged in during the assessment
  • Any classified malware will be identified
  • Identification of any credentials found on the Dark Web for your domain (Max. 5)
  • Insights relating to breaches that have affected users in your primary domain

Future-proof your security operations

Depending on your assessment findings, we can provide additional services to work alongside your traditional AV. This can include remediation solutions, incident response and managed services.
