REMOTE ACCESS SERVICE ASSESSMENT
Optimising Your Remote Access Service
CDW knows that providing secured and flexible remote access to your workforce and trusted partners is pivotal to your organisation and productivity. CDW’s Professional Services Consultant’s will perform a review of your Remote Access Services (RAS) from the ground up, providing you with insights into topology, security stance, bottle-necks and potential risks.
Why Should You Assess Your RAS Infrastructure?
As solutions evolve and adapt to business demands, legacy configuration is often left behind which, over time, can result in degraded performance and a weakened security stance. In addition, reactionary changes necessitated by external factors such as Covid-19 can result in rapid changes being made in-terms of scale and delivery which could lead to unintentionally weakened security controls and posture.
