 One-Off Audit & Kickstart Programme

In 2007, we introduced the Kickstart Programme. Kickstart is essentially a One-Off Audit geared towards the needs of new and existing licence holders. The aim is to provide on-site configuration of a customer's Xiscan system, run a full audit, and configure the Xiscan system so that the customer can continue to use it in day-to-day operations.

Summary:

  • Rapid response to an identified problem
  • Provides a quantification of the risks from modem access whilst minimising the investment in time and effort

This service is suited to customers at opposite ends of the requirement spectrum. It is suitable for customers who:

  • Need a point solution to address an identified problem

Or else, for customers who:

  • Perceive that they may have problem with unauthorised modem access
  • Would like a quantitative assessment of the perceived risk to determine whether it merits a further investment
  • Need to quantify the risks in order to prioritise against other demands on time and resources
  • Want to see tangible benefits before committing to a higher spend
  • Are (or intend to be) Xiscan Licensees, and who want to a solid base from which to start or restart auditing their telephony systems

Description:

This service includes all of the steps covered by our Managed Service, in a condensed package:

  • There is no commitment to a repeat scan schedule
  • It can be tailored to look at only a specific part of your organisation, where there is reason for concern

Rationale:

There are two reasons for requesting this type of service.

The first is in response to an identified problem, where a solution is needed fast. For example, Audit may have picked up an unauthorised modem compromising a business-critical machine. In this case you need a rapid response to determine the extent of the current problem. Any longer term requirements can be addressed at a later date.

The second reason is to give you some of the answers that you need to be able to make decisions based on facts rather than speculation:

  • how many systems are exposed to dial-in access?
  • how many of these systems have authorised access?
  • how many of these systems fulfill key roles?
  • how effective has any security policy been?

Acting on the Outcome:

How you take it from there is up to you.

You may decide that although some issues have come to light, there are other higher priorities within your organisation that you need to address first. The Xiscan audit will have identified the 'low-hanging fruit', and the bigger picture can always be addressed later.

Equally, you may see that the benefits merit committing to a fully Managed Service . Or else, you may feel that with immediate time pressures removed, licensing Xiscan for use by your own staff is the best course of action.

Whatever the outcome, we'll help you to reach a decision that best suits you.
