Aegis Bleu's VASST (Vulnerability Assessment Security Survey Tool) allows one or multiple individuals to quickly survey a facility and then document vulnerabilities using a mobile PDA with photographic evidence. Mobile teams can sweep one or multiple facilities in a tenth of the time of traditional methods.

"The sooner you can move from assessment to remediation the more significantly you can reduce your risk. VASST insures accurate collection in the minimal amount of time." said Daniel R. Young president of Aegis Bleu.

The vulnerability assessment tool can assess multiple facilities and consolidate information into a centralized reporting engine. The reporting engine allows for system wide risk based assessments along with comparative analysis. "Instead of spending time using traditional basement methods with VASST you can focus on analyzing your data and remediation steps." said Daniel R. Young. VASST utilizes Security Assessment File Exchange (SAFE), the most interchangeable and flexible security data file format available.
