IT Audit Process

IT is one of your most valuable business tools. Your network, and the information it holds should be reliable, secure and efficient.

A Centrix IT Audit is an in-depth review of your physical network and your business processes around your IT systems. We measure how well your existing infrastructure is working and provide advice on new services and applications that will help you keep pace with the demands of your business.

We completely check your IT as it stands and provide you with detailed findings and recommendations on mitigating your risks, saving on costs and strengthening your business.
