Risks & Recommendations Audit
You can’t improve until you know what you have!
Demystifying your IT infrastructure
Over time, your IT infrastructure will change. Equipment and software will reach end-of-life and once capable systems will start to struggle under the weight of escalating demand. It’s hard to keep track of what needs updating, when.
If you’re new in post or are worried that something potentially dangerous is lurking in your infrastructure, the answer is to run a thorough IT audit. Typically, we recommend a full audit every 2 years although this depends on the scale and complexity of your infrastructure.

The change has been unbelievable, moving from a full-on office setup to a cloud-based system. This would not have been possible without Mintivo.”
Hartham Park’s systems are now much more reliable and secure! Mintivo didn’t simply try to fix the immediate problems, they implemented long-term solutions that make our working lives better.”
For example, Mintivo were able to set up 20% of our users on portable devices within 3 days prior to the national lockdown. That wouldn’t have been possible without the ‘Gold Image’ build and deployment process.”
