Plug it in and go? If it were only that simple. As you may already be starting to realize, leaving your technology to run itself can quickly result in malfunctions and risk. To remain competitive in your operational efficiency and to prevent the compromise of data, it makes sense to invest in regular IT assessments.
Assessments of an IT system involves the evaluation and auditing of all parts of the system from hardware components such as devices and physical servers to software components like data backup and malware protection. With a comprehensive assessment you can also expect recommendations on how to further optimize your IT system for business.
Our IT Assessment service is a simple 4 step process:
Step 1: Introduction
Perhaps it’s a referral, an event, or an article. Perhaps you just stumbled upon us on the web. However it happened, we are glad that you found us! Let’s have a casual conversation about your basic situation and needs to determine where to start.
Step 2: Audit
We perform a complimentary and unbiased audit of your systems, processes and policies. We’ll let you know what areas are good, great and need improvement. We look for various shortfalls and opportunities related to your priorities and needs.
Step 3: Results
We compile hundreds of pages of audit results into an easy to read presentation. The positives and not so positive results are presented along with possible solutions, various opportunities, and different cost structures to fit your budget.
Step 4: Partner
We begin a long-term partnership that starts with a 30, 60 and 90 day plan. During that time, we implement a tailored plan while tracking the progress and results. After 90 days, we decide together if we are the right technology partner for you.
A full IT assessment includes auditing of your systems, processes and policies, interpretation of results, and recommendations for possible solutions and costs.
The IT audit process checks for server performance, hardware and software issues, mechanisms to ensure data and recovery, system vulnerabilities, and client devices.
Like oil changes or checkups on your car, regular IT audits will keep your whole system operating at it’s maximum capabilities. We keep things running smoothly to help you make the most of each and every day.
No matter how new or premium your IT system is, you still need to have it periodically assessed. As your business grows, so should your IT system. The key areas evaluated in our IT assessment are:
- User device inventory
- Network device inventory
- Server inventory
- Network diagram
- Patching status report
- Security vulnerability report
- Backup analysis report
- Malware/antivirus report
Yes! This will shield you from unnecessary costs and liability. Without proper IT assessments, you may at risk of potential leaks or dangerous exposure within your system. Either your data may be compromised or you may be draining your money with an overly expensive or inefficient IT system. We can let you know if your current setup is too much, not enough, or just not operating at maximum potential.
The IT audit process includes the following features:
- Ensure data back-up and recovery
- Check server performance
- Hardware and software
- Vulnerability clearance
- Client devices
Auditing includes everything from the compatibility of user devices, the existing risks and threats for the system, the malware protection status, and finally backup systems. If you have a specific or strategic goal in mind, let us tailor your auditing results in a presentation that prioritizes the needs and information most valuable to your objectives.
