Get Your Baseline Network & Security Review

IT is very different today than it was just a few years ago. Server technology has advanced, virtual data storage is part of critical backup systems and companies are exposed to increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity threats.

In addition, the smartest companies are leveraging their back-end infrastructure and network systems to increase productivity, reduce operating costs, multiply revenue streams, grow profits and even overtake their competition.

Network and Security Review

What is a Network and Security Review?

When you schedule your Network and Security Review, we will discuss your company goals and how your technology can be best utilized to help you achieve them. We look in depth at your infrastructure and network, how well it is currently working for you and how secure it is. This includes:

  • The types of systems and software you use
  • The age of your equipment
  • How all equipment and systems are configured
  • Any compliance standards that need to be met and how well you are meeting them
  • Existing pain points and how they are holding you back
  • A full baseline security review including your data backup plan

Critical Components of a Comprehensive Network and Security Review

  • Gateway – your gateway is the front of your network or your “firewall” – is it current, licensed and secure?
  • Switches – how old are they, are they working efficiently, are they fast enough, and is there any room for growth?
  • Systems, Software and Equipment (including computers and all devices) – we check to ensure everything is current and licensed, and how everything is connected. Are they wired or wireless, and are they inside or outside the network?
  • Who connects to your network – we compare who has access to the data and who should have access
  • What is your email system? Is it cost effective? Is there a better solution that can provide more value?

One of the biggest issues in data security is that people have access when they shouldn’t. They may not even be accessing it, but if they get infected, malicious software will take advantage of any permissions of that user.

Baseline Security Review

How can you be sure that all of these network components are truly secure?

In addition to evaluating your company goals and how your network can better support them, we do a full baseline security review.

Security requirements differ from organization to organization and are based on best practices and industry-specific compliance standards.

We take the time to fully understand your specific security requirements, review your existing systems and identify potential threats.

Why Does Baseline Security Matter?

  • Do you take credit cards?
  • Do you hold information about your customers in your email or on your servers?
  • Do you possess any sensitive or valuable data that would hurt you or your business (or your customers!) if exposed?
  • Are you subject to special regulatory compliance like PCI, HIPAA or Sarbanes-Oxley?
  • Are you legally required to report a breach to all of your customers?

If you said “yes” to any of the above, then you need a baseline security review.

What About Data Backups?

The way your company backs up data should be part of any security review.

  • Do you know how much downtime your business would experience if one of your servers or a key staff member’s computer broke or was stolen?
  • Do you know specifically how much it would cost your business in lost revenue and productivity — and to your reputation?
  • How would the loss of data potentially damage your reputation?

We can help you answer these questions as part of your Network and Security Review.

Once we have evaluated all network components, we will provide a written report including the current status of your network and a solution tailored specifically to help you reach your goals.
