Why conduct an audit?
In what situation do you have to audit your infrastructure? There are three types of situations for which our clients turn to our audit services:
Their production platform is experiencing issues (downtime, security, performance, slow deployment, etc.). They want to identify the root cause and receive recommendations for resolving these problems.
Preparing for production
They have developed a platform and want it to be reviewed by an expert before going into production.
They are facing new infrastructure challenges and seek an expert opinion to assess the current situation and plan for the future.
Our different types of interventions
We are here to help you step back and prioritize your projects. Once we have identified your needs, Padok offers audits tailored to your specific context.Request a quote
If you have built a Kubernetes infrastructure but are unsure if it will be resilient enough or properly sized, our Kubernetes experts conduct an architecture audit to provide actionable recommendations for optimizing your platforms.
If you have experienced a significant incident in production that had a strong impact on your business and want to ensure it won't happen again, our team provides its expertise to conduct a post-mortem analysis and guide you toward resolving the issue.
If you have an infrastructure on the Cloud but are unsure about its scalability or cost optimization, our Cloud experts conduct a comprehensive audit of your infrastructure to provide optimization advice and improve the performance of your Information System (SI).
If you are concerned about potential security vulnerabilities in your development practices or if your infrastructure may not be adequately secure, our experts perform a thorough security audit with prioritized recommendations for addressing vulnerabilities. They also advise integrating tools into the CI process to establish sustainable DevSecOps best practices.

Each intervention follows the following process
Reviewing the audit objectives and client context. Ensuring that the Padok expert has all the necessary access and documentation to proceed and planning necessary touchpoints with internal contacts.
The Padok expert conducts the investigation. A daily summary of the audit progress is sent to the client. The client's technical teams are involved to ensure the findings are concrete and actionable.
A presentation of the audit findings is conducted, involving all relevant stakeholders as deemed appropriate by the client. This workshop provides context to the results and addresses any team questions.
Delivery of deliverables
The deliverables are finalized based on the questions from the restitution workshop and then sent to the client.Audit my infrastructure
The Deliverables of our audits
The deliverables are sent at the end of each audit; they belong to the clients and are defined at the beginning of the project. Here are some examples of Padok's deliverables
Documented GitHub repository
The documented GitHub repository provides a complete detailed record of all audit observations. It includes existing code annotated and commented on by the Padok expert. This serves as the basis for the restitution presentation, which is more concise.
When the client lacks up-to-date diagrams of their existing infrastructure, the production of these diagrams is included in the audit. They are designed in collaboration with the internal teams.
This presentation is delivered during the restitution workshop and includes all audit categories and associated results.
Technical strategy Trello Board
The Trello board contains all technical tickets to be executed for correcting and evolving the infrastructure following the IT audit. Each ticket includes the technical strategy devised by the Padok expert and the acceptance criteria to validate the task.
