Network and security assessments work together to ensure the productivity and safety of your network. They provide a detailed reporting of your system that can help uncover plenty of problem areas. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common challenges for your network and security.
Underused or overused resources: A network audit helps you locate the exact resources your company underuses but continues to pay for — as well as the ones your business may rely on too heavily — so you can reallocate accordingly.
Congested bandwidth: If your network has been significantly lagging, a network assessment will alert you to bottlenecks, and find the best way to remedy the situation.
Poor network configuration: An audit can uncover inefficient setups and help you determine how to run your network more smoothly.
Security holes: Security assessments can locate obsolete security measures as well as other glaring security vulnerabilities that could threaten the safety of your data and weaken your system’s operation.
Already-compromised security: A security audit will locate viruses, malware or data breaches and help you decide on the best course of action for your business in the event of an active threat.
Lack of regulation or policy compliance: Today, many businesses are bound by government regulations that define what security measures need to be taken to protect data. An audit can help you determine whether or not you comply with these regulations and, if not, what steps you’ll need to take.
