Security devices such as firewalls, VPN endpoints and IDS (Intrusion Detection Systems) are critical components to any network. They often represent a sizeable investment in security, which to be fully realised relies on their effective and secure configuration. A security device audit reviews those aspects of security that cannot be assessed by any other audit type and ensures that they are operating as effectively as possible.
