SECUVANT started when our two owners saw a very large need for enterprise-grade security at small and medium businesses. After years of consulting and working with Fortune 100 companies all over the world on their cyber security and IT needs, it became apparent that even though these companies were spending millions of dollars, they were still getting hacked! 

SECUVANT was founded to provide enterprise-grade security for the SMB market at a much lower cost, providing better solutions and still reducing the risks. Our founders created a complete INDEPENDENT set of solutions to enable businesses using cyber security. Additionally, they saw a need to ENABLE a business with security, not just lock it down and make access and information security difficult. Our trademarked processes and maturity models have never been used in SMB before, until now!

  • Our unique maturity model for SMB shows you where you are at today and how to reduce risks. Beginning with vulnerability scanning, gap analysis and data discovery, our consulting team provides increased transparency into the location and safety of your critical data, as well as the potential risks involved in a breach. 
  • Our Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) service allows SMBs to have security coverage without the high cost of hiring. Get expert advice that takes the big picture into account with a team member who knows your business. 
  • SECUVANT is independent from any vendor, allowing us to give you the RIGHT recommendations, rather than the most expensive. Unlike other security risk assessment companies, our goal is not to sell a product but rather help your business succeed.
  • Complete security operations center (SOC) for managed security at an SMB cost. Our managed security services are delivered via the cloud and updated constantly to maintain vigilance at all times. A wide range of additional features, including built-in reporting and alerts, make compliance with external governance standards easy.
  • Complete vulnerability scanning, data scanning, compliance, governance, policy creation and risk reduction. Our proprietary methodology looks at over 100 areas of your overall cyber security to find weaknesses and develop strategies for remediating them. 

Save Money, Reduce Risk

Ultimately our goal at Secuvant is to give you the tools you need to be a safer, more productive business. We believe that when security services take into account an organization’s industry, working culture and long-term goals, they can enable increased productivity and profits. Unique among security risk assessment companies, Secuvant treats security from the broader context that is required to make business-forward decisions.
