Bethesda, MD – PLEX Solutions, a leading provider of vulnerability assessment and penetration testing services, announced that it has been accredited by the National Security Agency (NSA) as part of the inaugural class of elite Vulnerability Assessment Services (VAS) providers under the NSA’s National Security Cyber Assistance Program (NSCAP).
The NSA NSCAP mission is to address the growing concern regarding targeted network attacks across U.S. government agencies and the private sector by identifying highly qualified cyber security service providers who owners of both government and commercial systems can call upon for vulnerability assessment services.
The NSA NSCAP VAS accreditation is the new gold standard for vulnerability assessment service providers. To earn this accreditation, PLEX was evaluated in 16 vulnerability assessment functional areas including its ability to deliver state-of-the-art services, develop and maintain highly skilled staff, and keep pace with advanced threat actors through training, lessons learned, and shared situational awareness.

We’re very honored to have been selected by NSA in recognition of our superior performance and expertise as a vulnerability assessment provider,” said Terry Bradley, Chief Technology Officer and Director of Cyber Security Solutions at PLEX.
