Infrastructure Assessments

Many small to mid-size IT staffed organizations do not have the resources, nor the security expertise, to scope, design and evaluate complex network architectures to meet specific industry or regulatory standards (PCI, HIPAA, NIST, FISMA, etc.). We review core network switches, routers, servers, access points, and other network devices for weaknesses and vulnerabilities that can pose security or availability issue. As part of our assessment, our security professionals will evaluate your infrastructure components and recommend efficient and effective solutions to meet the organizational risk and security models.
