In order to ensure the optimized functioning of all the IT assets owned by an organization, audits can be a crucial step. The auditors required in this domain need to be skilled and experienced so that they can evaluate the assets in the best possible manner. Most organizations consult third party companies to fulfil this task but this is exactly where the problem lies. Most auditors are not well seasoned in their conduct and also omit the basic principles of auditing while dealing with IT auditing. We do not stick to a particular approach and leave out the other but here at HDD, we are dexterous in all the three approaches.
TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION PROCESS AUDIT
In this audit, a risk profile is made by the auditor for the company by assessing its current and future projects with regards to its experience in the field, the industry and the market.
INNOVATIVE COMPARISON AUDIT
This audit compares the innovative capabilities of the company in question with its competitors. It examines the research and development of the company as well.
TECHNOLOGICAL POSITION AUDIT
In this audit, the company’s current technologies are reviewed along with the ones it would need to add. Technologies are characterized as being either "base", "key", "pacing" or "emerging". Our IT auditors are well versed in conducting the audit with respect to all the approaches and also the categories of IT audit.
SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS
This audit verifies that the system and applications used by the organization are efficient, and are adequately controlled to ensure valid, reliable, timely, and secure input, processing, and output at all levels of a system's activity.
INFORMATION PROCESSING FACILITY
This audit ensures that the processing facility is controlled to ensure timely, accurate, and efficient processing of applications under normal and potentially disruptive conditions.
This audit ensures that the system under development essentially meets the objectives of the company and its development is in accordance with generally accepted standards for systems development.
MANAGEMENT OF IT AND ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE
This audit ensures that the IT Management has provided a set of structure and procedures to ensure a controlled and efficient environment for information processing.
CLIENT/SERVER, TELECOMMUNICATIONS, INTRANETS, AND EXTRANETS
This audit ensures that telecommunications controls are in place on the client (computer receiving services), server, and on the network connecting the clients and servers.
IT INFRASTRUCTURE SETUP:
Another complex and daunting challenge that awaits a company is setting up its IT infrastructure. A number of aspects demand consideration before one even considers to start the process. There is the communications aspect which dictates the medium of the communication either being landline or VoIP, network aspect which dictates either opting for a leased line or VPN. Determining all this is a tough task to pull off, but not for us. We here at HDD, excel at providing IT infrastructure consultancy and implementation along with our top of the line quality hardware products.
HDD’s technical team provides implementation support which assures compatibility and good performance of all the IT parts in your IT system. The process of implementation asks for proper planning in order to accommodate scalability for future growth and allow optimized space occupation. Our field of excellence revolves around ensuring fast and organized setup along with methodical cable of implementation.
In the list of key components of any office architecture, network infrastructure holds an eminent position. It facilitates the corporate operations to function with each other and access the internet. In the absence, of any such network the office routine would cease to function. The network engineers at HDD, aim at providing you with the best option to opt for as the network infrastructure solution for your company keeping in perspective the budget and resources.
The data requirements vary from company to company and they dictate the data center solution they deploy. Starting from Tape drive and media to internal hard drives and RAID controllers we have had the pleasure of implementation and maintaining all sorts of data storage components. Our expertise comes into action while dealing with SAN (Storage Area Network) and network storage devices.
The network security solutions at HDD range from firewalls, router and switch security, endpoint security, VPN access solutions etc. Our security experts will not use a ONE APPROACH TO FIT ALL strategy but they will recommend you the best possible solution for your business that coincides with your specified operational budget.
Storage area Network which is more commonly known as SAN storage is a local network of multiple devices that operate on disk block. This data storage technique is emerging out as a handy tool for enterprise organizations. It comprises of hosts, switches, storage elements, and storage devices which are interconnected using a variety of technologies, topologies and protocols. SANs are the most common storage networking architecture opted by enterprises and the credit goes to the attribute of delivering high throughput and low latency for business-critical applications. Moreover, SAN enables organizations to apply consistent methodologies and tools that would aid in security, data protection and disaster recovery. Engineers at HDD take pride in providing the best possible implementation of SAN devices. The major benefits of SANs can be described as follows:
RENOWNED FOR SCALABILITY:
SAN is widely renowned for its scalability. SAN scalability refers to the scenario where you do not need to limit your system in terms of being attached to a system. SANs can actually grow to hundreds of disks in size, whereas your server would be limited to about a dozen.
The unhindered performance by SAN is another key benefit of SAN, which is due to the fact that data transmitted from a SAN is on its own private network partitioned off from user traffic, backup traffic and other SAN traffic. The performance is not affected by local disk throughput bottlenecks or Ethernet traffic.
ISOLATION OF DATA:
The isolation of data refers to the point that data visibility scheme is extremely secure in SAN servers. The possibility of your data being copied or stolen is extremely low and can be well-understood from the fact that even SAN admins cannot view your data. SAN prevents overlapping by storing data in different zones on the same SAN. An evident example is that both Windows and UNIX servers can connect to the same SAN but still cannot access each other’s data.
LONG DISTANCE CONNECTIVITY:
SAN provides long range connectivity over the distance at 10km (about 6 miles). This enables many companies to distance their storage units far away using fiber channel technology or other network protocols. That makes it more feasible for companies to keep their backup data in remote locations.
BUSINESS CONTINUITY MANAGEMENT:
SAN storage plays an important role in an organization’s Business Continuity Management (BCM) activities. Also, SAN improves application availability and enhances application performance. The storage arrays in SAN use extremely good data protection algorithms to make sure that data stays consistent. SAN also simplifies storage administration and adds flexibility since cables and storage devices do not need to be locomoted in order to shift storage from one server to another.
Securing your business prospects along with upholding the integrity of your data, can be achieved through a surveillance system so that it can safeguard your business’s meaningful information and activities. In order to avoid a malicious threat or activity that may bring any kind of risk to your business a surveillance system is a dire need.
