What is Build and Configuration Review Services

Technology is often said to be responsible for many cyber security incidents.

A build review comprehensively examines a device's software and settings to ensure compliance with industry standards. It is crucial as it develops a solid security posture for a company. Additionally, build reviews offer reliable and repeatable testing. This assists IT and security teams in determining how well their settings defend infrastructure against online threats.

A sound IT infrastructure is essential for businesses to keep up with the latest technology trends. Not only does this ensure that your business runs smoothly and efficiently, but it can also help protect you from cyberattacks. If you are not currently performing an IT build and configuration review, now is the time to start; it could save you a lot of trouble down the road!

Here's Why Your Company Needs a Build and Configuration Review:

A build review is essential in ensuring that your business software is functioning correctly.

A device not adequately configured can present malicious attackers with a pathway into your organisation. Therefore to protect your firm's sensitive data, it is essential to identify and address vulnerabilities in your devices and networks.

Your business can carry out several different types of build assessments. However, to provide an accurate review of a build, it is essential to take into account the following:

Expertly Crafted Build and Configuration Review Services

Devices Assessed in our Build and Configuration Review

Mindfire will work with you to identify the elements of your network and devices critical for business operations.

We will then test those components against industry standard practices. By doing this, Mindfire can help you deliver reliable applications and secure networks while minimising risk. Devices assessed may include:


We take a close look at the configuration of a wide range of servers to ensure that they are deployed and configured securely. We can assist you in determining the risks associated with patching so that you may continuously release updates while maintaining the most significant possible levels of service availability.

Firewalls, switches, & routers

Many organisations rely on firewalls and network devices as critical components of their security measures, so they must be appropriately configured. Our tests are designed to detect security flaws such as failing to follow industry standards or instances of wrong firewall settings. The scope of each review can be tailored to specific needs.

Laptops & desktop computers

Reviewing the essential hardware and software used for daily operations to mitigate cyber risk is critical. Our consultants detect current configuration vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could be exploited to obtain unauthorised access to sensitive data, systems, or networks.

Mobile phones

Losing track of a mobile device (such as a smartphone or tablet) that isn't correctly set up might result in unauthorised access to your organisation's data. Our cybersecurity experts can help to secure your mobile devices and protect your data.

Gold Builds

We assess gold build templates against industry best practices to provide excellent deployment, efficiency and security assurance.

Mindfire's Step-by-Step Approach to Build and Configuration Review

Cyber security needs to be constantly monitored.

The fast-paced growth of business and digital transformation means that cyber security needs to be constantly monitored. New systems, applications and devices can introduce security risks that could allow attackers to gain access to your network and steal critical data. Also, many devices come pre-loaded with weak out-of-the-box settings.

We at Mindfire cover all major Microsoft and Unix/Linux operating systems, including Microsoft Windows (desktop and server versions), RedHat, Ubuntu, Debian, SuSE, and Scientific Linux. We use unique, custom-built tools to give us the edge. Below we have described our approach in more detail.

Data gathering
Our penetration testers gather information about your network assets and how they are configured using automated tools and manual processes.

Configuration Analysis
We then identify vulnerabilities by carefully analysing and comparing data collected across your network to baseline settings.

Following the completion of an assessment, we provide a written report and debrief essential findings as well as a prioritised set of remedial actions to help address any identified risks and exposures.
