Signature VM – Managed Services Study


The Secutor Signature Vulnerability Management (SSVM) service is a holistic, risk-based approach to Vulnerability Management that places emphasis on using network security architecture in combination with the award-winning QualysGuard platform to identify critical attack vectors and prioritize vulnerability remediation. We help our clients find the “needle in a haystack”: the risks and vulnerabilities that offer malicious entities the path of least resistance into their secured network. Over 10,000 companies use QualysGuard solutions to transform their asset and vulnerability data into answers that power their security programs. Provided as a service managed by our top cybersecurity experts, SSVM is a comprehensive solution leveraging QualysGuard to serve as a solid foundation upon which a successful cybersecurity program can be built.


This company has grown into becoming the trusted compliance partner to more than 10,000 registered locations of healthcare worldwide. For more than ten years their technology platform has been servicing and supporting a more efficient compliance healthcare experience. With ever increasing cybersecurity requirements, their VP of Technology contacted Secutor for help.


Secutor reviewed and rapidly identified their most pressing challenges. Among several other items that Secutor helped them remediate, Vulnerability Management was top of their priority list. Some of the problems identified were:

  • They knew that they were vulnerable to attack, but had no way to quantify their risk or identify the most likely attack vectors
  • The IT team was fully focused on building out their AWS environment and improving their product offering to customers
  • They were critically short-handed on staff with the time and knowledge to implement a Vulnerability Management program
  • They had very little oversight into whether their outsourced MSP was meeting their patching metrics
  • Their outsourced Vulnerability Assessment provider was only scanning them once a quarter, the reports were sparse, and they were very expensive
  • Their asset and software inventory was incomplete and out of date
