Ascend Security & Assessment

For some assessment companies, a customer is just a date and a dollar sign.  They are just looking to put a check in a box. Our mission is to go beyond the assessment and be a partner and guide.  We strive to be part of your security and compliance program and team, go beyond the check-in-the-box, and help you build the tools and knowledge for a successful security and compliance program long into the future.

We center our security services on three values: Quality, Speed, and Partnership.  Our seasoned assessors work dedicated time on your assessment for rapid completion while maintaining superior quality.  Our streamlined processes ensure that you are not waiting weeks or months to receive the results of your assessment.  Further, we seek to be a partner before, during, and after your assessment  We will not disappear when the assessment is over, but work with you during remediation and beyond to help you grow your security and compliance program.
