Sera-Brynn, the top-ranked cybersecurity firm in Virginia on the Cybersecurity Ventures Hot 500 list, has been placed on the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Pre-Qualified Vendors List for the next two years.

Placement on the list allows Sera-Brynn to serve as consultants offering specialized expertise that state agencies and other public bodies can use on an “as-needed” basis, as long as the quotes and proposals for the services of work don’t exceed $100,000.

The Pre-Qualified Vendors List is in effect from Aug. 1, 2015, through July 31, 2017. Sera-Brynn is the top-ranked firm out of 39 others on the list in Virginia and 16th in the world on the Cybersecurity Ventures’ list of the top 500 cybersecurity companies.

The companies make the Cybersecurity Ventures list for proving that they provide solutions that protect large enterprises, small to mid-sized businesses and consumers. Sera-Brynn has a focus on helping clients mitigate cyber risk by identifying vulnerabilities, testing them against a wide array of threats and assessing compliance against current and suggested mandatory compliance standards.

Every government agency and public body, whether state or local, is susceptible to a data breach, said Sera-Brynn CEO Rob Hegedus.

“Whether you’re the federal Office of Personnel Management or the municipal water company, you’re a target,” he said.
