Network Assessment

Is Your Network As Secure As You Think?


What Is a Network Assessment?

A network assessment is a review of your organization’s existing IT infrastructure, management, security, processes, and performance to identify opportunities for improvement and get a comprehensive view of the state of your IT. It plays an essential role in planning for new network implementations or troubleshooting existing ones. Through objective testing and analysis, a network assessment provides a sound foundation that may then be measured against a customer’s technological expectations.

Not having an accurate picture of a network’s capabilities and issues can pose serious problems that could complicate, even undermine, a planned implementation. Through objective testing and analysis, a network assessment provides a sound foundation that may then be measured against a customer’s technological expectations.

Assessment objectives will be different for most businesses. The small hotel with 2 computers will be substantially different than a medical facility with 40 network devices including 2 servers, right?

A network assessment will determine a few things:

  • Assess security threat points
  • Looming hardware issues
  • Application Integration (email, database, backups)
  • Disaster Recovery

Why should a small business undergo a periodic network assessment when everything appears to be working fine?

Every business decision or action has a reaction, and a network assessment identifies the real dangers that lurk in your small business. For instance, are your employees using company computers to access websites not used for business activity? Are they using their own mobile devices to access your network resources like email, company files or applciations? Are they downloading questionable software onto your business computers? Studies show that most vulnerabilities that exist in a business, arge or small, are born from poor security habits and activities of the company staff.
