Assurit Continuous Monitoring Services form the backbone of your IT security program and help you proactively identify weaknesses in controls and processes while providing real-time security metrics.
Assurit adheres to established IT security processes and frameworks to ensure the continuous compliance monitoring and management of security postures. Our services and solutions reflect the recommendations of the NIST Risk Management Framework (SP 800-37, SP 800-137, SP 800-53 etc.); the Continuous Asset Evaluation, Situational Awareness, and Risk Scoring (CAESARS) model; the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF); the FedRAMP requirements for assessing, authorizing and continuously monitoring cloud solutions, and others.
We follow Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) Frameworks and Controls and Center for Internet Security (CIS) Security Controls Resources, and utilize SANS Institute security research and guidance.
The true value of information security monitoring is to protect your organization’s sensitive data—that is knowing what that data is, where that data is stored, and who has access to that data. After that, the next step is to simply to reduce privileges to that data and put in controls to protect and monitor the data wherever it lives.
Immediate Detection & Response
The faster you can identify errors, fraud or unauthorized access attempts, the faster they can be resolved, especially if you are automatically alerted to abuses within any system. By being proactive, you can resolve issues before they impact customers and other areas of your business.

Our Continuous Security Monitoring engagements include:
Continuous Monitoring Strategy
Ongoing assessment of security controls results in greater control over the security posture of an IT system and enables timely risk-management decisions. Assurit can help your organization develop a thorough and compliant continuous monitoring strategy that focuses on due diligence and an on-going review of security controls to make informed risk management decisions.
An effective Continuous Monitoring program is dependent upon the ability to obtain a thorough understanding of the assets within your environment. Assurit can help you discover and maintain an almost near real-time inventory of all information assets on your network(s) including both hardware and software.
Assurit can help by performing routine scans (e.g., vulnerability, web-applications) on your information assets to determine vulnerabilities and the inherent risk in operating an environment with these assets. We can assist with prioritizing findings and providing detailed reporting by department, platform, network, asset, and vulnerability type.
Daily monitoring and interpretation of security product logs and alerts is fundamental to the detection of unauthorized behavior, malicious hacks, denial of service attacks, anomalous activity, and more. Assurit can help alleviate the challenge in sifting through volumes of data quickly enough to find evidence of an attack in progress before it’s too late.
Assurit can lead the implementation, configuration, operation and management of tools delivered through the CDM program to enhance and automate your existing continuous network monitoring capabilities, correlate and analyze critical security-related information, and improve risk-based decision-making at the enterprise level.
Dashboards and Reports
For management to get an overall security posture of the environment, it is crucial to have dashboards and reports that provide a consolidated view of the enterprise. From accounts, to vulnerability scan results, to baseline compliance, to asset visibility, all are equally important and play a crucial role in your overall security posture.
