Why Does a Business Need a Network Security Assessment?
As businesses grow, their IT systems become more complex. Eventually, it can be difficult to understand what is happening on all devices and systems. Slower network operations can also decrease the productivity of daily business.
No matter the size of your business, you need a detailed understanding of your network to protect against security concerns. An expert examination and analysis are needed to find vulnerabilities before they cause disruption. Evaluations also ensure networks are configured properly for peak performance.
What Does A Network Assessment Include?
Blade's network assessments include an extensive look at the overall functionality of your system. From the design, workflow, traffic, and physical machines—we look at everything. Known and unknown threats can be found in any aspect of an IT system. Because of this, it is important to look at every component.
Through a variety of network assessment tools, we gain a comprehensive understanding of your system. External vulnerability tests determine the strength of your network, and how easily a cyber-attack could occur and identify risks that have gone unnoticed.
Our expert risk assessments also include:
- evaluation of network design and configurations
- documentation of network topology
- documentation of network hardware
- network traffic and performance analysis
- optimization recommendations
- comprehensive results reporting
Assessment of Network Risks for BYOD
With more employees working from home, more businesses are also encouraging employees to use their own devices. Bring your own device (BYOD) to work allows for more flexibility, but also increased risk.
Networked devices typically contain higher levels of IT security than employee-owned devices. At Blade, we help assess this risk associated with BYOD in your workplace. Our team reviews policies to ensure liabilities are addressed and identify where vulnerabilities might occur in employee-owned laptops and phones.
