Network Assessment Tools

Network assessments reveal IT network and security risks and generate easy-to-understand reports and documentation that indicate steps that must be taken to correct them. Reports based on network assessment findings include IT SWOT analyses and checklists.

As businesses grow, they often expand their IT networks to provide new capabilities — but overlook proper management, performance optimization, and security. A network assessment will provide visibility into issues so they can be corrected before they lead to problems that lead to downtime. A network assessment can be the first step in identifying bottlenecks that are that are slowing performance, the cause of frequent malware or virus issues, or communications problems. Once the problem is identified and corrected, employees can work more productively and operations can run more smoothly.

Performing a network assessment is also a good strategy if a business is planning to expand its IT capabilities. The assessment will allow the company to identify and correct any existing issues before adding new solutions.

How To Leverage Network Assessments

Network assessments are a proven way to help you sell your products and services. A report based on the assessment will clearly show issues that need to be corrected to ensure business continuity or to eliminate a vulnerability to cyberattacks. You can perform an assessment as a free service to a prospect to get your foot in the door — getting results ahead of time so you can prepare for your first meeting — or to encourage break-fix clients to consider managed services.

For your ongoing managed services clients, perform network assessments and use reports during quarterly business reviews (QBRs) to show the value your services provide to their businesses.
