Importance of a Network Audit
There are many factors contributing to the smooth running of your IT and chances are it was put together piece by piece over a period of time. Your company has grown and expanded since inception and the pace technology has been evolving has made it likely you are out of touch with all the moving parts within your IT infrastructure. This includes your network, security, access permissions, applications and much more. As you layer technology stacks, it becomes more likely slow downs start to happen due to integration issues. And this doesn’t mention the security risks you could be opening yourself up to.
The best way to ensure the safety and efficiency of your IT, is to have a network audit performed at least annually. As we get ready to move into 2021, now is a great time to have one done, so you can move into the next year with an improvement plan.
A network audit will identify areas where your infrastructure can improve. Data loss can be extremely time consuming and simple upgrades to your IT system can help eliminate this worry and hassle completely. Effective backup and disaster recovery solutions can be crucial to the long-term success of your business.
With many IT infrastructures, one of the biggest problems is outdated hardware. By updating your hardware, you will see a significant improvement across the whole network by integrating newer and faster components. On the software side, a network audit will determine what software has been installed, what’s no longer necessary and how you can create further space on your network and speed up processes. This will help protect against things getting inadvertently installed on your network by various employees.
Anytime you can create proactive processes within your IT environment vs. having to take reactive measures, you are saving your company time and money. Proactivity ensures potential errors are fixed before they can pose a problem for your company. You’ll find out everything that could cause potentially serious damage and ensure this is corrected.
