A GAFE Audit provides an in-depth review of your GAFE domain by industry experts against best practices. Each setting will be documented and analyzed including the integration with other IT systems, tests of compliance, and evaluation of the effectiveness of current usage of GAFE offerings.
The focus of the GAFE Audit will be split into a review of four key areas:
Operations & GAFE Management
Analysis of procedures, practices, policy documentation and systems surrounding the day-to-day management of GAFE resources.
Services & Configuration
Technical audit of the settings and configuration of GAFE core services, Chrome device management, marketplace apps and other services.
Security & Compliance
Snapshot and analysis of current security and compliance settings. Deep scan of drive usage, content and sharing settings.
Reporting on and tracking of usage of core applications.
What will you learn from your GAFE Audit?
The output of the audit exercise will be a comprehensive documented report. Each section will be broken down into areas noted for improvement, recommendations and associated high-level risks. Links to Web resources will be provided for each recommended action.
