The illusion of security in IT is as fragile as a spiders-web; especially for a company that is built upon a shaky IT infrastructure. Even if the infrastructure of a company has been built up over time, as growth occurs, as does the need for added security and an increase in infrastructure. To keep your IT systems running smoothly, the IT team should always ensure that networks, security, access permissions, and applications, are always working as they should. This is where an IT network audit becomes paramount. IT network audits assess the overall IT infrastructure of a given company and determine where exactly security risks and technical frailties lie. Easy and painless, there are five key reasons why every company should utilize network audits.
Discover Inefficiencies In Infrastructure
One of the most important features of network auditing software is discovering inefficiencies or areas in which your IT infrastructure can improve. Odds are, there is at least one area of your infrastructure where there is a need for improvement. Let’s say you have a single computer on the network with lagging memory space. Simply upgrading the memory would increase performance and give the end-user a boost. Another discovery is incorrect system settings or substandard security configurations. Each is a relatively inexpensive fix that can boost network performance and ensure optimum security.
