Cloud Security Assessment

At Vortex Services, our team of experts conducts a comprehensive assessment of your cloud environment to identify potential security vulnerabilities across multiple layers. This thorough evaluation encompasses key areas such as infrastructure, management, and compliance to ensure that your cloud-based systems are adequately protected from threats.

By performing a rigorous examination of your cloud setup, we pinpoint weaknesses in security controls, configuration, and best practices, enabling you to take proactive measures to strengthen your defenses. Our analysis covers a range of factors, including:

1. Infrastructure: We review the architecture and design of your cloud infrastructure, examining factors such as network segmentation, firewall configurations, and access control lists (ACLs) to identify potential entry points for attackers.

2. Management: Our assessment evaluates the effectiveness of your cloud management tools, policies, and procedures, ensuring that they are aligned with industry best practices and regulatory requirements.

3. Compliance: We verify compliance with relevant regulatory standards, such as HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and GDPR, to guarantee that your cloud environment meets the necessary security and privacy benchmarks.

By leveraging our expertise in cloud security assessment and advisory services, you can rest assured that your cloud-based systems are secure, reliable, and compliant with industry regulations. Our findings provide actionable recommendations for improving your cloud security posture, allowing you to make data-driven decisions about where to focus your efforts.

Network Card Selection

Selection of network cards (NICs) plays a crucial role in the performance of your setup. In order to avoid bottlenecks and missed packets caused by cheap NICs overwhelming your CPU with interrupt handling, it is essential to invest in quality NICs. Especially when utilizing pfSense software to safeguard your wireless network or segment multiple LAN segments, prioritizing throughput between interfaces becomes more critical than throughput to the WAN interface(s). For optimal performance and reliability, Intel chipsets are highly recommended when using pfSense software. Vortex Security advises purchasing Intel cards or systems with built-in Intel NICs up to 1Gbps. However, for speeds exceeding 1Gbps, considering other factors and NIC vendors is necessary to achieve peak performance.
