Network audits focus on more than security issues. They also look for efficiency errors, such as bottlenecks. When network problems like this sneak up on you, they can often bring your business to a standstill — and when they’re solved, they can result in an influx of backlogged emails. That’s why doing a network audit in advance is a smart course of action.
Hardware, such as servers and workstations, can last for years. They can fail, however, in an instant. That can put your operations on hold, which can lead to delays in fulfilling orders, signing new clients, and other vital tasks. With a business network audit, hardware inspections reveal issues before they become problems.
Security is essential in today’s world of shared information, storage and data. For most companies, it’s the first thought that comes to mind at the mention of network audits. During these inspections, any found vulnerabilities are noted.
Catching these risks offers substantial returns by preventing the loss of sensitive data, as well as the potential fallout from the theft of such information.
Audits for your company’s network often include a list of recommendations, which detail any uncovered issues, such as network errors, old hardware, or security vulnerabilities. In most cases, your audit provider can deliver the necessary patches, as well as replacement equipment to return your network to optimal performance and protection.

As for large companies with an IT team, auditing your network according to a specific schedule is a challenge, so hiring a second party to conduct a network audit ensures that your network is examined throughout the year, as well as investigated by a team familiar with network problems and ways to address them.
Whether you’re a large or small business, network audits are a smart choice for protecting your company.
Both network and security assessments work together in a network security audit to ensure the productivity and safety of your network. This audit will help uncover plenty of problems, including:
Sometimes a network slowdown can be caused by poor network configuration. An audit can uncover inefficient setups and help you determine how to run your network more smoothly. If you plan to expand your network or grow your business shortly, an assessment can also help you plan and ensure that your system is prepared to handle your future growth.
Too many companies today are running their networks using outdated security software — a severe problem in the world of data breaches. Security assessments can locate obsolete security measures as well as other glaring security vulnerabilities that could threaten the safety of your data and weaken your system’s operation. With attackers uncovering new ways every day to threaten network security, you may be surprised to find new security holes even if nothing has changed within your system since your last audit.
