The quick audit delivers a fast but thorough overview of the networking and security challenges of your environment. All challenges are prioritized into quick wins, medium-term wins and long-term wins.
The audit starts with an internal scan of the most common network & security issues, such as default SNMP passwords, default admin passwords, duplex mismatch, speed mismatch, spanning tree issues and so on. We provide a basic network drawing where we focus on redundancy and wrongly configured links, and we check the customer's perceptions against real implementations – the gap analysis.
Last but not least, we make an inventory of all devices and their patch level. We also check firmware levels and if firmware levels are lagging behind, we find out why. The conclusions of the quick audit and the resulting priorities for action are presented in a formal meeting and, in consultation with you, we plan the next step.
