What We Do

We collaborate with your business to develop and implement strategic IT solutions with cybersecurity woven throughout.

Cyber Security

Shifting business priorities and constantly evolving threats mean that a one-size-fits-all approach to cybersecurity is no longer practical — or safe. What works for one company isn’t guaranteed to work for yours. Defending against modern threats requires a risk-based security plan and diligence.

At Ascent Solutions, we employ the skills that many of our cyber architects used to protect our nation to now defend enterprises of all sizes. By taking a cyber warfare approach to your environment, we help you prioritize your resources, defend against the right attack vectors, and successfully combat whichever malicious actors you may face.

Testimonial

From the very beginning, the Ascent Solutions team portrayed the right character to be partners with us. Their commitment to our team and to our business, combined with their knowledge and confidence, gave me the confidence to know we would have a successful long-term partnership

ceo, AUCTIONEERING CO-OP

Success Story

Ascent Solutions’ Managed Services team worked with Regional Healthcare Provider to provide Microsoft CSP licensing to their partners. Ascent developed and deployed a strategy for migration that allowed migration of users on-to their own tenant without a significant disruption to the End-User while maintaining required security configuration. This involved complex configuration of Infrastructure, Organizational Change Management planning/scheduling/communication, extensive Exchange/AD planning, Security discovery/configuration, white glove support, and ongoing support of Teams/Exchange Online/M365 Licensing.

Testimonial

During my first experience with Ascent Solutions, they provided top-notch service and were able to address my immediate issues. After that, we engaged Ascent on many more proactive projects of a more strategic nature. The Ascent team is now a highly valued partner to us and are a key part to infrastructure projects and strategy for our company.

CIO, EDUCATIONAL TESTING FIRM

Testimonial

Our current IT Ops team expects a lot from the partners we work with, making it difficult for any company to live up to their expectations. Through our initial talks, we immediately felt that Ascent Solutions had the talent needed for our O365 migration. But more than that, we quickly found that Ascent’s engineers are bright, and, similar to our team, work as a unit. The Ascent team was always willing to do whatever it took to make the project successful. If you rely equally on employees and consultants like I do, you may have found a lifelong partner in Ascent.
