Network Detective Pro is the industry-leading IT assessment tool used by thousands of IT professionals to gain greater visibility into all parts of their IT environment:
Network Detective Pro goes way beyond just network discovery and reporting to provide real “value-added intelligence” to your IT Assessments. Our proprietary data collectors compare multiple data points to uncover hard to detect issues, measure risk, provide recommended fixes, and track remediation progress.
Every day IT Departments are finding new uses for Network Detective Pro, and getting more value out of IT.
If you are ever asked to assess a third-party network environment — such as a potential acquisition target, a third-party vendor needing clearance, or even a strategic partner or customer — sometimes you don’t want to install any software, agents or probes that could “leave digital footprints” or potentially conflict with unknown systems. Unlike any other IT assessment product, Network Detective Pro can perform full, in-depth assessments with nothing to install! Just run the small data collectors directly from your laptop or from a thumb drive connected to any windows machine on the network. In most cases the scans complete in well under an hour. Network Detective Pro’s benign data collectors diligently gather a mountain of network data and saves it in an encrypted file back on your thumb drive or laptop. When complete, it leaves no “traces” of your activity, no conflicts with other applications, no firewall issues, and nothing to remember to uninstall.
Sometimes you are scheduled to take on a new project, without a clear sense of the actual scope of work. Could be a large migration project, system upgrade, new software deployment and the link. Will it take a day? A week? A month. Best practice is to run an IT Assessment to properly scope the amount of work, and set expectation of your end-users if the project could impact them, and/or your team’s overall availability during the project. It’s not enough to know how many desktops, servers and users. You might need to be able to get a comprehensive snapshot of what’s on each system, maybe generate a complete Layer 2/3 diagram of the environment, do a deep dive into the Microsoft 365 cloud services, get a data dump from Active Directory and Azure AD, or perform an assessment of any SQL or Exchange servers there may be. You’ll also want a complete picture of the security posture of the environment to determine if the project will create any additional risk.
Network Detective Pro finds all the “gotchas,” giving you the opportunity to insure that the scope of work is in line with the time you expect to invest.
You only have a chance to make a good first impression with new employees once, and with the help of Network Detective Pro, you’ll make a great one with your end users. That’s because you can quickly scan a legacy machine that’s being turned over — or a new one from the factory — to make sure that everything is properly configured and set up for the new owner.
And on the flip side, you definitely don’t want ex-employees to have continued access to systems, nor bloating various software group users, after their employment is terminated. Network Detective Pro makes it easy to perform an Active Director clean up and search for other places through the IT environment where the user’s credentials should be purged.
A dollar saved is a dollar earned, and when it comes to IT services, time is money.
If you find yourself wasting time fighting fires instead of efficiently handling routine network maintenance and hygiene, you’re probably not running regular IT assessments as frequently as you should. With Network Detective Pro, you’ll have access to all the data you need to prioritize your work based on risk and issue severity, and get the right things done at the right time.
With the automation tools built into Network Detective Pro, you can have the system automatically run the data collectors on a scheduled basis, and then send you the reports you need to identify what’s changed since the last time you checked. You’ll catch the small problems before they become big ones, and identify what policies and procedures need to be changed to stop recurring issues.
You can’t be too secure in this day-and-age of increasing cybersecurity sophistication. Network Detective Pro gives you an extra layer of security through automated, pre-scheduled IT risk assessments that can discover issues that are hidden from agents and other security systems.
In addition to a regular External Vulnerability Scanning feature — built right into Network Detective Pro at no cost and for unlimited use on licensed sites — you can also discover a wide range of asset-based, policy-based, and user-based risks that can pop up at any time.
But Network Detective Pro goes one step further: it will automatically create a report that prioritizes the issues it discovers, pointpoint for you where to find them, and even tell you how to remediate them! You can have the reports automatically sent to you as they are produced, and even have tickets automatically generated from the issues, and sent directly to your favorite PSA tool.
For most executives, IT expenditures are a necessary evil. They see the money going out the door, but don’t truly understand the benefits that are derived by the investment. And that’s what makes it particularly hard for IT Departments to justify adding staff, or purchasing new hardware, software or services.
With Network Detective Pro, it is easy to generate the evidence you need to support your existing budget, and even grow it. Use the Asset Aging Report to create a long-term capital replacement plan for your servers and workstations. Share your BDR Needs Analysis Report to justify the need for more/better back-up systems. There are literally more than 100 different pre-defined reports ready for you to generate after every assessment!
At a minimum, you can find new devices the client added to their network, more storage that needs to be backed up, new users that need to be protected. But you can also use the reports to justify the need for new or upgraded hardware and software, managed cloud services, and higher/expanded levels of security.
One of the toughest parts of an IT professional’s job is explaining what you do to non-technical people who are literally clueless about IT (whether they admit it or not). Network Detective Pro has dozens of built-in reports that are specifically designed for this situation, and help you communicate with the non-technical people in your organization.
You get literally dozens of professionally-designed, well-organized reports specifically built for a non-technical audience. There are infographic reports with high-level information about different IT topics. There are Risk Summary reports to help raise awareness within the organization of areas that need more attention. And there are Progress and QBR reports to help show management what you’ve been up to.
Best of all, you can elevate the professional impact of your reports by customizing them with your own company logo, company colors, custom images and other components to make them uniquely yours.
I just closed a deal with a medical practice due to my Network Detective reporting. I 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!

We love Network Detective because it saves us time and money while providing a ridiculously amazing value to our customers. It has replaced hours of work and correlation from our RMM tools with a simple wizard based interface. Our customers love it because it provides excellent benchmarking and documentation.

Network Detective has allowed me to document a network in 30 minutes. I can show the client the Visio diagram as an initial item, and then print out the entire binded report 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.
