Even though many companies may be working with smaller overall IT budgets, the portions of these IT budgets that are allocated towards security is increasing. This is happening because the perceived risks and the actual risks are growing dynamically. It is a matter of self-defense.
Avoiding Security System Sprawl and Gaps
It is important not to be wasteful in planning for IT security and make sure the application of budgeted funds is producing the best results. Security system redundancy and system sprawl across multiple networks are common problems. This not only costs a company more; it can actually increase the security risks that the security systems are trying to reduce.
Such wastefulness and any security gaps are uncovered by a comprehensive IT security review by Sentree Systems serving customers in Indianapolis and all across Indiana in cities and towns like Plainfield, Noblesville, Avon, Carmel, and Fishers.
Having Adequate IT Security Monitoring
This is achieved by a combination of outside consulting assistance from Sentree Systems working with in-house IT security staff. This is a 24/7 job that should never be neglected
Best Practices for Managing IT Security Budgets
Using too many security solutions combined with a lack of properly-trained IT-security staff causes big problems. Instead, here are the best practices to follow:
- Work with a single IT security vendor like Sentree Systems that provides a comprehensive solution.
- Reduce redundancy in security systems to have a more cost-effective solution.
- Conduct regular security audits to uncover problems proactively before a disaster occurs.
- Make the security audit recommendations and fund them with the proper amount of budgeted support.
By working with a single-solution provider like Sentree Systems, a cost-effective security program can be put in place that reduces wastefulness and gets the job done. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 317-939-3282 to schedule an IT security review.
