Ricoh Network Assessment Service

Security vulnerabilities and threats continue to rise. More small and midsize businesses (SMBs) are experiencing breaches due to viruses, malware and hacker intrusions. And in industry surveys, many SMB IT managers acknowledge that their organizations lack sufficient protection for sensitive data.

While even the largest businesses seem unable to avoid attacks by determined hackers, SMBs can take measured steps to mitigate risk. However, given the complexity of the threats-and the constant pace of change in IT-many SMB executives simply don't know where to start. The answer may be Ricoh's Network Assessment.

Through this on-site assessment, Ricoh's IT experts examine your network, servers and peripheral devices and interview key personnel about business and governance processes.
