Security Architecture Review
Security architecture reviews are non-disruptive studies that uncover systemic security issues in your environment. They are ideally suited for organizations wanting to maximize their return on any security technology investment by evaluating their needs and validating the security of their existing deployments. The result is an actionable roadmap to help remediate identified security deficiencies.
When Should a Review Be Performed?
Organizations should undertake a security architecture review under the following conditions:
- You experience a security breach.
- You are planning a network redesign or expansion.
- Your business expansion needs exceed current network capacity.
- You need more insights/data into your network environment.
- You want to reduce the burden of regulatory compliance (e.g., PCI, HIPAA).
- You think vulnerabilities are present in your network infrastructure.
- You have contract obligations with business partners and customers.
- Your business is planning or recently completed a merger or acquisition.
- Changes have been applied to your network environment.
- Major upgrades were performed to your network environment.
