Proactive Network Assessments

Deploy Proactive Network Assessments Before It’s Too Late

In today’s digitally reliant age, a company is only as strong as its network. Imagine if you came into the office after the weekend, turned on your computers, and discovered that all of your data was gone as a result of an infection of some sort…

What would you do?

Would you be able to continue the workday like nothing happened?

Or would you have to call around for an expert to come out immediately, spend hours, or worse, days trying to recover the data, and remediate the infection so you and your staff members could continue working?

A minor issue on the network can turn into major downtime – becoming a costly disaster before you know it. If you’re not on top of your network, as well as the devices and configurations within it, you’re likely facing a significant level of risk.

Stop minor issues from becoming costly disasters.

You don’t have to let minor issues become costly disasters. Sure, you likely have some sort of network monitoring in place (and if you don’t, you need it – asap), but if you’re looking into network assessments, chances are, you don’t truly feel like everything is handled right now.

A network assessment plays a critical role in making sure your network is safe, reliable, and operating at peak performance. Here’s what’s involved:

  • Creating a detailed database of all your technology assets
  • Reviewing any existing security policies, measures, and procedures
  • Searching for confidential data in areas it’s not authorized to be
  • Detecting any vulnerabilities found on the network or connected devices
  • Providing a comprehensive report of your risk level and recommendations

During proactive network assessments, we also look for areas on your network that can be improved to achieve:

  • Automation
  • Consolidation
  • Simplification
  • Cost reduction

In a traditional computing environment, capacity is often provisioned based on estimated peak requirements of resources. This means that oftentimes, expensive resources may be sitting idle whereas other times, capacity isn’t enough to meet demand. A network assessment can allow you to gain insight into whether or not a new architecture, such as moving some parts of your network to the cloud, will cut costs and help you better scale as needed.

Get the insight you need to plan for the future.

If you don’t know what you’re working with when it comes to your network, it’s hard to plan ahead for growth. A network assessment gives you a clear idea of what’s happening in terms of cost, health, performance, and security. Once you have this information, you can move forward with a clear roadmap to improve without headaches resulting from technology hassles.

It’s a win-win situation because you avoid any sort of costly disasters AND get an opportunity to make some serious improvements so you can operate more efficiently later on. There’s no more guessing, trying and failing or worrying that you’re making the wrong move because you have the real-time, accurate information to make informed choices.
