I just closed a deal with a medical practice that has two locations, due in large part to my Network Detective Pro reporting. I really think it gives me the upper hand when I walk in the door - especially if I am bidding against other firms. They can't produce anything near what we show up with on the first day!

The Security Assessment Module of Network Detective has been of great use to our business. We use it in all aspects of our business. We’ve found it to be a great addition when we are doing our initial assessments for clients. Some consultants just give potential clients a “feeling” of how their network stacks up – now we can show them proof! We added it to our suite of provided services for our fully managed service clients, at no extra charge to them. Now they are getting more value for their money! And it gives us yet another point to show clients the value we bring to the table. We also like to use it as an internal check to make sure we are doing our job properly.

Network Detective has allowed me to enter and document a network initially in 30 minutes. I can show the client the Visio diagram as an initial item, and then print out the entire report binded as their network documentation. The client thinks I spent hours putting it together. In reality, it only took me an hour between collection and printing.

The Security Assessment Module has been fantastic for us. We have been able to go into meetings and really impress the decision makers with the reports generated from the super easy-to-operate interface. We have also made this part of our ongoing services for existing clients, we run the assessments often, generate the report and compare them to previous reports to let clients know we are on top of it. It’s the most impact we have had for a relatively small amount of overhead.

Frequently Asked Questions About Network Detective Pro and Network Scanning

A network security assessment is a thorough evaluation of how safe an organization's computer network is. It looks at things like the network's structure, systems, and rules to find any possible weaknesses or risks. The assessment involves carefully studying the network's security measures, rules, and ways of doing things to see if they are effective at stopping unauthorized access.

Here is why a network assessment is crucial:

  • A network assessment gives you an in-depth analysis of your IT environment to help you make informed decisions regarding system upgrades and overall maintenance.
  • It gives you a clear roadmap to help you revamp your IT infrastructure, helping you save money and giving your team the time to focus on strategic activities.
  • A strong network assessment gives you full visibility into your organization's network to chalk out a proactive security strategy against global cyberthreats as well as end-user vulnerabilities.
  • Network assessments expose loopholes in your current operations, presenting you with opportunities for improvement.

A network assessment should be seen as an invaluable tool for refining critical processes that even the most competent IT pro might have overlooked. However, to get the most out of a network assessment, one must take a holistic approach and include the following crucial components:

Network assets

A network asset is any data, device or component that supports a company's IT infrastructure such as hardware, software and physical devices. The assessment will help identify devices that are obsolete, vulnerable or nearing their end, which in turn will reveal devices that may not be meeting compliance requirements.

IT security framework

There has been a major shift in the cybersecurity landscape, with expert cyberthieves constantly on the prowl looking to exploit system vulnerabilities. This means organizations can no longer merely rely on antivirus and strong passwords. An assessment of the IT security framework helps companies find existing vulnerabilities in their systems and the subsequent security assessment report can help strengthen their infrastructure.

Performance analysis

The aim of an IT infrastructure is to ensure the smooth flow of data. A network assessment helps identify over- or under-utilized technology that affects the overall performance of the network. Based on the analysis, IT pros can allocate resources to enhance system performance.

Cloud setup

With organizations becoming increasingly dependent on the cloud, it is crucial that businesses leverage cloud computing technology. Whether you are using cloud-based services for backup, recovery and file-sharing, or to run cloud-based applications, building a solid security infrastructure is a must.

A network assessment is extremely valuable for IT departments to make more informed and strategic decisions with maximum cost-efficiency. The process can be performed manually by a team of analysts and engineers who will first need to create the assessment and then run tests to get a comprehensive understanding of the IT network. However, this can be tedious and time-consuming.

Through the use of automated network assessment tools, results can be achieved in the timeliest and most resource-efficient way, allowing you to take advantage of advanced capabilities. With an automated tool such as Network Detective Pro, you can scan a massive amount of network, cloud, asset and user data. Its non-intrusive scanners can scan and help you prepare hundreds of customizable reports within minutes without burdening your IT professionals.

A network assessment tool is a software solution that helps businesses streamline and automate network assessments. A network assessment tool has several easy-to-use features that help MSPs and SMBs save time and money, ensuring resources are used effectively. Here are some features to look for in a network assessment tool:

  • The ability to non-intrusively collect detailed information on all network assets, including those not physically connected to the network.
  • The ability to Identify risks from misconfigurations, network vulnerabilities and user threats.
  • The ability to support all environments, from on-premises to remote, to the cloud, to work-from-home
  • The ability to produce highly customizable value-proving reports.

Whether you are an MSP managing several clients or an SMB, a network assessment tool can help you build an efficient IT management plan. Here is how you can do it:
  • Admins can use a network work assessment tool to evaluate the overall health of their client's IT infrastructure and identify areas of improvement to further optimize performance.
  • You can use a network assessment tool to ensure your business or your clients are in full compliance with necessary regulations by conducting regular network assessments, carrying out remediation efforts to fix the discovered issues and documenting the entire process.
  • Companies can utilize network assessment tools to identify network configuration errors that can then be fixed to enhance the security of their network.
  • While prospecting for new clients, MSPs can run non-intrusive scans to gauge the scope of work and generate insightful reports to justify the need for their service.
  • Both MSPs and businesses can regularly run scheduled automated assessments as part of their IT management plan to maintain network and system health.
