CDW’s Technology Services team specializes in providing comprehensive security assessments. The process involves careful analysis to identify, quantify and prioritize network risk.
Designed to focus on different parts of the infrastructure, the vulnerability assessment provides a detailed analysis of potential security flaws. It helps to identify high-risk scenarios, network threats and the advancement of effective risk reduction.
In spite of a slow economy, both large and small enterprises are stating that they spent a higher percentage of IT budgets on security in 2009.
In a study recently released by Forrester Research, the pressure to scale back IT spending is not slowing the trend toward increased spend on network security.
According to the research, firms were planning to devote 12.6 percent of IT budget to security in 2009 versus 11.7 percent in 2008 and 7.2 percent in 2007.
The assessments allow a firm to take immediate corrective action. The results can also be used as a stepping stone to future security planning. CDW offers consultation that not only protects networks from harm, but also helps organize and streamline security efforts, lowers network cost of ownership and enables greater productivity.
