An Eye on the Network or the Question of “What do we actually do?”
We usually give a brief example to explain this: an everyday incident, one that we are all familiar with. Imagine your TV is broken and you need a technician to repair it. You now have three options:
You can order a technician and wait at home until the TV is fixed.
Not a great solution. After all, who wants to use up their holiday time on a broken TV?
You can allow the technician to enter your home on his own and hope that he will carry out his work properly and not rummage around in your personal belongings.
Also not really a great idea. You can hope, but you won’t know for sure.
You can ask an “overseer” you trust not to leave the technician out of their sight.
Even this solution can’t give you complete piece of mind.
You’re probably asking yourself now what this example has to do with amitego engineering. It’s quite simple – imagine we’re dealing with your data center instead of your home, the broken TV is a fault in your IT infrastructure and the TV technician is your IT service provider (internal, external, offshore).
As with most companies, your IT service providers probably carry out maintenance on your data center via remote access service.
This maintenance process is therefore convenient (no travel costs or need to call in technical specialists, etc.) but completely based on the principle of hope as a result. Or can you see, for example, what has actually been carried out? Do you know whether sensitive corporate information might have been looked at? No!
