Security Architecture / Configuration Effectiveness Assessment

As cyberattacks targeting organizational operating systems, servers, applications and databases are becoming more sophisticated and harder to detect, organizations acknowledge that the most effective way to combat them is to maintain robust information systems and controls. When properly evaluated, organizations are empowered to structure a secure, cost-effective and efficient network architecture which requires few resources to manage.

Overview

Security Architecture / Configuration Effectiveness refers to the ability of a security device to respond accurately and efficiently to a wide range of common threats, and to provide comprehensive protection against threats targeting specific applications. Functional configuration audits are conducted on hardware and software configuration items, as well as on security policies. This is to verify that each item meets the requirements specified, and to assure that risks are identified and handled appropriately. Security Architecture / Configuration Effectiveness needs to be performed on different levels and can be perfectly aligned with an organization’s defense in depth security strategy. By safeguarding critical operational resources, an organization avoids experiencing undesired consequences such as the financial loss, system outage, data theft, information leakage and damage in reputation.
