FoxTech’s Vulnerability Management Service “ASSURE” Helps Client Meet Cyber Essentials Standards and Win Government Contracts


FoxTech, a leading cybersecurity company, specializes in offering Vulnerability Management services to clients across various industries. This case study demonstrates how FOXTECH helped a client achieve Cyber Essentials certification, win government contracts, and reassure their customers about their security standards by employing FOXTECH’s Vulnerability Management service ASSURE.

Client Background:

The client, a growing technology firm, sought to win government contracts and ensure their customers that their digital assets were secure. They needed to obtain Cyber Essentials certification, a UK government-backed scheme that sets out baseline cybersecurity requirements for organisations. This certification would enable them to demonstrate their commitment to protecting sensitive data and reducing cybersecurity risks.


The client faced two primary challenges:

  1. Creating and maintaining an accurate and up-to-date Asset library to identify and track their digital assets.
  2. Identifying and patching vulnerabilities within 14 days of discovery, as required by the Cyber Essentials scheme.

FoxTech’s Solution:

FoxTech’s Vulnerability Management service ASSURE was tailored to address the client’s specific needs:

  1. Asset Library: FoxTech’s team worked closely with the client to create a comprehensive Asset library, including hardware, software, and network components. This enabled the client to have a clear overview of their digital assets and facilitated the identification of potential vulnerabilities.
  1. Identifying and Patching Vulnerabilities: FoxTech employed cutting-edge scanning tools and techniques to identify vulnerabilities in the client’s systems. The team then prioritized these vulnerabilities and worked with the client to remediate them within the 14-day window set by the Cyber Essentials scheme.

Results and Benefits:

By leveraging FoxTech’s ASSURE service, the client achieved the following results:

  1. Cyber Essentials Certification: The client successfully met the Cyber Essentials requirements, demonstrating their commitment to cybersecurity and enabling them to bid for government contracts confidently.
  1. Increased Customer Trust: The client’s Cyber Essentials certification reassured their existing customers and prospects that their sensitive data and systems were protected.
  1. Reduced Risk of Cyber Attacks: By promptly identifying and patching vulnerabilities, the client minimized their risk of cyberattacks and potential data loss or system downtime.
  1. Streamlined Processes: The Asset library and vulnerability management processes established by FoxTech enabled the client to maintain an up-to-date view of their assets and vulnerabilities, facilitating timely decision-making and continuous improvement of their cybersecurity posture.
