What is Security Architecture Review Services

Security Configuration and Architecture Review Services

Security configuration and architecture review evaluates the effectiveness of an organisation's security controls on a technical and operational level. It is a comprehensive assessment of various security features to identify risks and improve your security posture.

The review tests the people, processes and technology to provide improvements to your existing solutions and provides recommendations that will improve your organisation’s security practices.

These features include:

  • Infrastructure Security
  • Application Security
  • Network Security
  • Access Management & Security
  • Cloud & Data Security
  • Security Misconfigurations

Testing Vulnerabilities

At Mindfire, we perform the below reviews to identify their scope and existing rules.

Network Security Architecture Review

Our security configuration specialists conduct high-level technical assessments of your network to detect possible flaws. We do this by examining personnel, processes and technologies within the network.

Firstly, we obtain information about your network by going through all relevant documentation such as security requirements, technology inventory, network diagram and the DMZ (demilitarized zone).

We confirm the accuracy of the information in the documents through consultations with security analysts, software engineers, management and network engineers.

We then analyse the findings to confirm they abide by industry standards, laws and regulations, and current security best practices.

Your assigned architectural review experts finally deliver a high-level technical report for technical staff and a concise management report for non-technical staff.

These reports provide details about the risks within your network environment and how your organisation can mitigate them. We also detail the process we took while exploiting your network and the vulnerabilities detected.

IAM Architecture Review

An identity and access management architecture review is a comprehensive analysis of the framework of processes, policies and technologies that control the management of digital and electronic identities.

Mindfire reviews the systems managers use to control access to information within the organisation. We conduct a detailed evaluation of the IAM life cycle as well as other significant features of IAM, including:

  • authentication procedures,
  • identity provisioning,
  • access management,
  • network access control,
  • authentication protocols,
  • data access controls,
  • access control configurations, centralised and de-centralised identity and access management, and
  • application access controls.

Infrastructure Security Architecture Review

Mindfire’s security assessment services fully review your infrastructure security architecture. This evaluates your organisation’s infrastructure capabilities to prevent data loss concerning security events and monitored traffic.

We establish the posterity of all security that services your entire infrastructure and standard service security features such as wireless, VOIP, UCS and Email. Some more reviews we will conduct include;

  • server and application hardening,
  • boundary protection,
  • integrated cryptographic systems, and
  • device security.

Web Application Security Architecture Review

Your organisation needs to mitigate vulnerabilities related to your applications’ architecture to ensure it is secure. Using Mindfire’ web application security architecture design review services has numerous benefits, such as:

  • Assuring stakeholders that your application is secure.
  • Guaranteeing that the application achieves performance goals and meets business needs.
  • Detecting and eliminating vulnerabilities detected during application software design.
  • Reducing software development costs as a result of bug fixes and reworking.
  • Complying with industry standards and regulations.
  • Reducing the risk of cyber-attacks and data breaches that have financial and reputational repercussions.

Cloud Security Architecture Review

Cloud computing has enabled companies to streamline workflows, improve collaboration and securely store data. If your company has implemented cloud migration, you must ensure your software security architecture to keep your data and overall business secure.

When Mindfire’s cloud security configuration experts conduct a software architectural review, we examine your personnel, physical, procedural, and technical cloud architecture.

We ensure that your organisation follows the NCSC cloud security principles, ensuring that the data and the assets that process and store this data are protected against loss, damage, seizure or physical tampering.

We follow a standard cloud security review checklist that provides critical security areas we must follow during the assessment. These include:

  • Policies and procedures
  • Access management
  • Networking
  • Backup and data recovery
  • Security patches and updates
  • Logging and monitoring
  • Data encryption

Network Device Audit and Configuration Review

Network devices are necessary for your organisation's smooth running and productivity. Devices such as routers and switches are at risk of unauthorised access, and you must ensure such devices are configured correctly.

Our network device audit is usually an addition to a broader network penetration test. Mindfire’s security configuration specialist will review the device management environment and the security baseline setup. We also perform an audit and configuration analysis of the device against set standards.

Some features we also examine include:

  • Configuration hardening
  • Access control
  • Change & patch management
  • Company security policy

Mindfire’s network device audit will give your organisation new opportunities for connectivity without compromising security. You will also be able to comply with government requirements and eliminate the risk of network device compatibility.

When do security architecture review

Make sure your organisation undertakes a configuration and architecture review when you go through these situations.

Why Mindfire

Your organisation needs to protect your systems' availability, confidentiality and integrity.

As your organisation grows and evolves, your network infrastructure also changes. However, many businesses put security as an afterthought. Gaps and vulnerabilities can develop when there are changes in network configurations. This increases the risk of security threats as the underlying security infrastructure will not detect these vulnerabilities. Your organisation needs to protect your systems' availability, confidentiality and integrity. Malware is constantly evolving and becoming more advanced, so your security systems must keep up.

When you engage Mindfire, a reputable security assessment company to provide security configuration and architectural review services, you guarantee that your systems remain fully protected and your security configurations are consistently robust.
