IT Due Diligence

In an acquisition or merger, an inventory of the company’s IT assets is roughly the same as its balance sheet — a good place to start your investigation.

To truly understand what you’re getting into, and to avoid costly, post-close surprises, you need a thorough examination of hardware, software, staffing and practices. Ashton will find the minutiae and point you in the right direction. Our team conducts an on-site analysis that lasts hours, or days, depending on the complexity of the network. We check:

  • Server/Storage Infrastructure
  • Firewall configuration
  • Switches
  • PCs
  • Wireless Infrastructure
  • Backups/Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity
  • Antivirus/Malware Control
  • Remote Access/User and Remote Site Access
  • Patching/Security Patching of Systems
  • Version/Change Control
  • Documentation of IT Processes and Procedures

Our process includes in-depth interviews with all relevant staff; extensive testing; verification of all assets, warranties and licenses; and installation of remote management and analysis tools to gather more data and identify gaps between current infrastructure and best practices.

After testing, we provide a comprehensive (and confidential) report on the state of the network, as well as a gap analysis between the current infrastructure and best practices followed with recommendations for remediation. We can also can review self-assessment audits to confirm the findings or point out inconsistencies, and make recommendations on staffing levels.
