• Critical application requirements
• Bandwidth and quality of service requirements
• End-user and mobility requirements
• Cyber security requirements
Wireless Audit report contents
• Detailed wireless radio heat maps with optimised Access Point placement
• Data throughput estimates
• Signal strength (coverage)
• Signal to noise ratios

Additionally, the Audit includes recommendations for implementation and highlights issues that could affect a successful deployment i.e. antenna types, cabling requirement, switch infrastructure limitations, etc.

Infrastructure Vulnerability Audit

Specialists in providing IT Infrastructure vulnerability management solutions

Businesses often underestimate the amount of equipment in their IT environment and may claim a lower number of routers, servers, computers and other devices than they have. Moncrieff can provide you with an IT infrastructure assessment that will help prevent such issues as well as provide your business with a deliverable, comprehensive executive summary. Contact us today for a detailed IT audit.

This assessment will outline any immediate threats to your IT environment, compliance gaps, unusual server energy usage, the pros and cons of your current network, and offer recommendations for the required adjustments to your technology.

Why do you need an IT assessment?

With the average cost of an unplanned IT infrastructure outage calculated at over $10,000AUD per minute, you can’t afford a miscalculation.

A power outage in late September 2016 crippled the entire state of South Australia. What would a power outage mean if it happened to your organisation? According to PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) research, after a power outage disrupts IT systems:

  • More than 33% of organisations will take more than a day to recover
  • 10% of organisations take more than a week to recover
  • It can take up to 48 hours to reconfigure a network
  • It can take days or weeks to re-enter lost data

90% of organisations that experience a computer disaster and don’t have a survival plan, go out of business within 18 months. These are statistics you don’t want to be a part of.

ICT vulnerability solutions

By partnering with APC and Schneider Electric, we now offer a range of solutions to help you best prepare and handle your IT requirements during these unforeseen events. We will conduct regular infrastructure audits to identify areas for improvement in both the operations and energy efficiency side of your site’s physical infrastructure.

What a IT assessment audit entails

We’ll meet with you to determine the goals of your organisation and help identify any IT problems hindering your business. We’ll perform a network vulnerability assessment and cyber security audit of your company’s operations. Our engineers will compare your IT environment’s actual performance to the desired performance your business wishes to achieve, and will provide a deliverable report that outlines how your company can accomplish its technology objectives.

The one-day on-site audit encompasses:

  • Security – from room access to configuration and software
  • Management and monitoring of the infrastructure as well as procedures when breaches occur
  • Energy usage covering lighting, cooling and power
  • Room and racking layout to ensure consistency throughout

The audit is designed to expose potential vulnerabilities with your on-site infrastructure. Following the audit, you’ll receive a detailed report outlining the actions recommended and a staged plan to mitigate risks.

Cloud Readiness Assessments

A cloud readiness assessment reviews three critical areas: technology, people and processes. Your organisation may be already using cloud or about to begin the journey to migrate some or all processes to the cloud.

Moncrieff’s Cloud Readiness Assessment will provide guidance as to the best practice for your business-critical processes and recommend private, public and/or a hybrid cloud approach. In addition to technology and processes, we take into account the people and required changes for a successful cloud strategy.

Moncrieff assists your organisation to prioritise workloads and develop a timeline of implementation for success migration to the cloud.
