For organizations that require regular quarterly reviews of network and app infrastructure, Connectis can perform a Security Configuration Review and report on the current state of network device configurations, gaps and server hardening to protect against targeted attacks. Your network security is compromised if devices are left at their default settings, have been mis-configured, or servers may use weak passwords and default accounts.
Network devices are crucial for the operation of any organization, and their compromise can have a huge impact, which can be immediately quantifiable in terms of lost revenue and productivity. Connectis provides a comprehensive and detailed security configuration audit Summary of Findings of network components such as firewalls, switches, router and servers, to ensure that weaknesses in their configuration are identified and with a plan for remediation, reducing the risk of a security incident.
Without an IT policy that ensures your network devices are configured with security in mind, the availability of your network can be compromised. The policy begins with assessing the risk to the network and building a team to respond. A risk analysis will identify the risks to your network, network resources, and data. This doesn’t mean you should identify every possible entry point to the network, nor every possible means of attack. The intent of a risk analysis is to identify portions of your network, assign a threat rating to each portion, and apply an appropriate level of security. This helps maintain a workable balance between security and required network access.
With a Security Configuration Review Audit, you’ll:
- Extend your connectivity to achieve business objectives without sacrificing security
- Reduce the risk of the network device compromise and subsequent loss of revenue and productivity.
- Establish a baseline for best security practices.
- Ensure that your investment in security is as effective as possible
- Verify the operating condition and the effectiveness of your security configuration and rule sets.
