soma IT Audit
Are you brave enough to uncover the truth about your business?
If you’re not – you should be.
You can’t conduct your own audit without having a conflict of interest.
An IT audit doesn’t simply summarise your environment, equipment and frameworks. It extends to processes that impact the ongoing performance of your IT systems as well as industry best practice, documentation supporting your business processes, security and disaster recovery protocols.
We all like to think that our Network’s are secure and issue free. The fact is that a lot of the time you cannot control changes within your Network. Technically speaking an Audit will provide insight into an organization’s culture, policies and procedures. Audit results will assist board and management by verifying internal controls such as operating effectiveness, risk mitigation controls, and compliance with any relevant laws or regulations.
How does a soma Audit look? In summary, here’s how it will go;
- Firstly, soma will investigate your IT infrastructure
Our talented systems specialists talk to your key staff, review your processes and take a detailed inventory of your current technologies, applications and systems.
- We will learn and understand your goals
We make every recommendation with your future business plan in mind. We want to know your goals – one year, five years and a decade from now.
- Identify IT gaps and SWOT your journey

- Evaluate areas of critical risk
We look at your security posture to identify pressing security risks. Some may not be affecting your business now but could cause serious problems in the near future.
- Presentation time – your soma audit
Detailed findings resulting from your audit will be presented where possible in person or via a channel of your choice. We don’t believe in confusing, long-form proposals that are difficult to understand. We cut to the chase and then we get to work.

Back-up and DR services
Backup is an essential element within any modern business. No matter how secure and protected your systems are, it’s not always a virus or hardware failure that causes data loss.
There’s verified data that supports the fact that the biggest cause is human error. As IT Infrastructure becomes increasingly central to the ability of organisations to function on a day-to-day basis, so do the risks associated with a poor backup strategy, which will lead to recovery difficulties. Backup has evolved. Modern data protection needs to balance data safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity and security.
soma will modernize your backup, improve your recovery time objective (RTO), your RPO, and retention SLAs, on-premises, in private, public, or hybrid clouds, all while reducing cost, risk, and complexity.

Most businesses already have at least one workload running in the cloud. For businesses considering full scale Cloud migration factors such as which Cloud service model and type is right for you? Are your Network applications and is your equipment ready for the Cloud? Only when the answers to these questions is YES, will soma partner with you on your Cloud migration.
These are the most common service models:
- IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service (eg AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform).
- PaaS: Platform as a Service (eg AWS, Elastic, Beanstalk, Heroku, Google App Engine, Engine Yard).
- SaaS: Software as a Service (eg Google G Suite, Office 365, Salesforce, NetSuite).
Once you have chosen a model it’s time to select a Cloud type, there are 3 basic choices;
- The Public Cloud – your resources are entirely hosted across one or more cloud providers, for example, Azure or AWS.
- The Private Cloud – you build your own Cloud using a purpose platform such as VMware’s vCloud
- The Hybrid Cloud – Your resources are spread over both Private and Public platforms
