Free IT Audit

Are your IT processes as secure and effective as they could be? Confidence in your organisation’s IT security is more important than ever, and it’s not just your IT infrastructure that needs reviewing.

An in-depth IT audit can help you identify areas working well as well as highlight critical areas for improvement within your organisation. If you want to see where your vulnerabilities are, an IT audit is the perfect starting point. Even better if it’s free! It’s better to confront potential weaknesses now than deal with the consequences later.

ramsac’s free IT audit is one of the most thorough, in-depth IT audits around. From backups to business continuity, server access to staff training. We review your processes, infrastructure and communication with staff to provide you a report that allows you to take further action.

    • System performance –a review of the system as a whole to identify areas which may be limiting performance
    • External connections – test of comms/internet connectivity and availability
    • General security review – including endpoint security, anti-malware, perimeter firewall protection, scan of external ports, passwords, admin rights etc.
    • Remote connection processes to ensure they are reliable, efficient and secure
    • General review of business continuity, system reliability and general performance

    Your IT Health - Areas to consider

    Backups

    Do you know how effective your back up process is? Though you may have already invested in a robust backup process, you need to make sure the process is being frequently tested. You need to make sure the optimal processes are in place for tape backups and cloud backups.

    Total IT

    Hardware

    Are your critical pieces of hardware protected? From being very expensive to being hard to configure, you want to make sure your network parts are protected. By having your hardware protected, you can rest assured your staff can continue to work as they should with minimal interruption.

    Licences

    Do you know if you have the correct licences in order? From Microsoft products to a multitude of other business applications, it can be hard to know if you are over or under-licenced. It is a good idea to have a member of staff tracking expiry dates to make sure all licences are up to date.

    Telecoms

    Network

    Networks should be checked and assessed regularly to highlight any potential risks. This could include anything from backup failure to spikes in disk space. By monitoring your network and setting up alerts, you can prevent a small problem from becoming a much more critical problem.

    support

    System updates

    Are your systems all up to date? Systems updates are crucial to making sure your computers remain protected against new vulnerabilities and threats. There should be someone monitoring both servers and user devices to ensure they are up to date and are regularly being updated.

    approachable

    Access

    Do you have a handle on who has access to what within your company? Are passwords weak? Good access control is critical to maintaining strong IT security. Key considerations should include who has admin access to servers, password strength. how often passwords are changed and what the processes are when staff leave.

    advice

    Staff training

    There’s no point in investing all your money in the best IT security and technology if your staff aren’t aware of the threats. IT security should be 50% infrastructure and 50% user training. This training should be consistent and up to date to make sure staff are aware of the latest threats and best practice.

    Projects and Consultancy

    Business continuity

    Are you frequently testing your business continuity plan? To make sure your business continuity plan remains effective for responding to a companywide interruption, it needs frequent testing. Chances are, you’ll find missing areas as well as some that need updating (new staff contact details, new suppliers etc).

    strategy

    Single points of failure

    Lastly, are there any single points of failure within your business? This could include having one point of contact with all the IT knowledge or simply having one internet provider. Consider how this could be improved and how you can eliminate these single points of failure.

    How our Free IT Audit works

    When you request an IT audit from us, one of the team will be in touch to discuss your current IT structure. Once we have a better understanding of your business, we will then perform our free IT audit for qualifying organisations. Unlike other IT audits, our audit is extremely thorough. It covers key risk areas and allows us to review multiple processes of which many are covered above.

    Once we have completed your IT audit, we will provide you with a written report grading individual processes with a traffic light colour coding system. Red indicates the highest priority for addressing, green for lower priority considerations.

    Changing IT support providers, like changing lawyers, is not a decision any business takes lightly or frequently. The decision is fraught with numerous questions such as whether the new team will understand my business needs, will it cause teething problems, and more importantly, will the reality match the sales pitch! We took that decision to move to Ramsac in January after ten years with another provider and we have not regretted that choice for a moment. Ramsac are simply great! From the get go we have been very well supported from the front line very helpful telephone support team right up to our relationship manager. We feel that the Ramsac team are very much an integral part of us . What however has driven us to write this review is the fabulous support we have received following a cyber attack this week. Something no business wants to happen but is increasingly a sad factor of modern cyber life. The Ramsac cyber support team were superb and really gave us first class support and guidance through what was frankly a horrible experience. Thank you Dan! Denise Herrington

    We have worked with Ramsac since 2015. They offer a truly winning formula. We have been delighted by their support at all three levels: our network consultant (Colin) understands our set up and is great when we need to upgrade our infrastructure; we have ready access to our account manager who has been great with supporting our growth; and the helpdesk is always so patient for the day-to-day glitches. Very professional and supportive – thank you team ramsac!

    I have known Dan May and Ramsac for 5 or 6 years now. Dan is such a great guy and really helpful with strategic advice and input on all things IT. He's so approachable and doesn't baffle you with IT jargon. If you are looking to outsource your IT or you have a problem you need help with Dan is definitely the one to ask.
