IT Software & Network Security Audits

Network security audits help organizations identify vulnerabilities on their computing devices, removing all guesswork and speculation about security within the IT infrastructure. The results of the audits help inform management and network administrators about known and potential vulnerabilities so that they can be addressed and managed.

IT audits are particularly essential for organizations that are required to comply strict regulatory compliances such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX).

They can also be used at a broader level to ensure that an organization’s information security practices are working properly and are effective.

While many organizations may realize the inherent benefits of IT audits, many lack the personnel and financial resources to conduct audits themselves. As a result, more and more organizations are exploring ways to outsource their specialized, non-core functions to managed service providers (MSPs) who can assist in developing a path toward a secure, repeatable and sustainable IT security strategy.

In this way, IT audits can create opportunities for MSPs to add another valuable offering to their portfolio of services.
