Secure configuration audit helps in safeguarding the organization’s assets from ever increasing cyberthreats and data breach. Configuration audits provide a mechanism for understanding the degree to which the current state of network and system servers is consistent with the latest cybersecurity baseline requirements, aiding in improvising a greater visibility over the infrastructure, system, databases and services or applications running on critical systems.

Network Server

The audit aims at checking every facet of your network for the vulnerabilities hackers exploit to gain access. The policies and practices adopted helps to prevent and monitor unauthorized access,unauthorized traffic, misuse, modification, or denial of a network component and network-accessible resources. The audit process is carried out in various phases to ensure planning and concise delivery as per latest security frameworks like NIST, MITRE etc

The configuration process also helps to gather information and comprehension the state of

  • User Access Control On Systems

  • Password And Account Policies

  • Services And Applications Running On Critical Systems

  • The Current Set Of Missing Security Patches


QRC formulates an end to end plan to conduct a secure configuration review that ascertains that all the vital aspects of the IT system configuration are monitored and maintained to ensure safeguards. All assessments undergo several technical and quality assurance phases.

Network Server

Pre-engagement phase

Scope definition of the systems under review with automated and manual collection of current configuration settings of the IT infrastructure.

Network Server

Network Infrastructure Review

Security Review to confirm that the network can offer a high level of confidentiality, integrity, and availability, and proactively identifies security vulnerabilities within the architecture.

Network Server

Firewall rules review and validation

Review the rules and suggest clean-up for rules that have a range of ports or all port/all protocols. Check for obsolete rules, rules that should have been temporary, or rules that are no longer used.

Network Server

User and User Groups validation

Verify the users, user groups, access and the permissions allocated to the specific entity as per business compliance requirement.

Network Server

Logs and Backup process reviews

Review the procedure in place for completion verification of backups and logs.

Network Server

Network access points identification

Identify and enlist all the authorized device and access point on the corporate network to avoid infiltration through rogue access points.

Network Server

Server status review

Ensure that system hasn't been compromised or blacklisted

Network Server

Network monitoring activities

Verify and validate the network monitoring setup and process, to ensure compliance with best practices.

Network Server

Vulnerability Posture Assessment

Reviewing that the system and networks are up to date against vulnerabilities.

Network Server

Final Reporting

We assess the findings and provide a risk rating with detailed descriptions of unsafe findings

Network Server

Remediation Strategy

Discuss the findings with administrators to provide recommendations for a remediation strategy.
