Security Architecture Review
Delivering Beyond the Firewall
HALOCK’s security architecture review identifies opportunities for improvement in your security infrastructure. We use data from multiple configurations, reference architecture diagrams, key personnel interviews, and other controls in your environment to help assess the current state of your technical security posture and to provide insightful recommendations based on security industry best practice guidance.
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.
