Network Assessments In Chicago

When a company invests in regularly scheduled network assessments, problems can be found and fixed before they become bigger ones. This allows companies to optimize their networks to increase quality improvements and decrease additional costs.

What Is A Network Assessment?

A network assessment is a comprehensive analysis of your network’s entire infrastructure, from management to overall performance, to identify performance issues, where upgrades can be made, and network functionality. The final result of the assessment can help company executives decide how to move forward with their in-house IT solutions and what changes need to be made to their future planning strategy.

The technicians at CEU Technologies, Inc. perform their assessments to audit all the following areas:

Infrastructure

Infrastructure

The first step in any network assessment is a robust inventory of all IT assets. This includes not only your servers but all of the attached devices. A complete accounting will help with the organization of said assets on the network and the discovery of what is being under or over-utilized and what has been neglected. This process is dependent wholly on the size of your company and how often records have been updated. A badly managed network could take weeks or months to catalog all the assets.

Security

Security

Cybersecurity is a key part of the overall assessment. Technicians will examine current security protocols, to include hardware and software, to find any vulnerable areas that could allow an outside risk in. But it’s not just the technical parts. A security assessment also takes into account users and their interaction with the network. People, whether employees or customers, remain the largest threat to cybersecurity, and understanding how your users move through the network can help mitigate the risk, especially during remote work.

Software

Software

By assessing the software used throughout the network, our technicians can evaluate its overall performance. Considering that poor network performance can lead to loss of revenue, it is a highly viewed category of our assessment. Between outdated software, missing or incomplete patching, and poorly maintained firewalls, the majority of software issues are rooted in available updates not being applied, which creates holes in your network that can potentially cause privacy leaks that break trust with your customers and risks the security of proprietary and financial information.

Hardware

Hardware

Hardware is expensive, and while it’s understandable for companies to want every last penny from these systems, the truth is simply that doing so is a danger to your network. Our hardware audit identifies end-of-life (EOL) and upgradable devices, so that your system is physically capable of the network it has to carry. This includes user units that lack adequate memory or hard drive space, which drags on the network and any cloud space it contains.

After A Network Assessment

Our technicians will provide a thorough, detailed report grading the risks in your system and the suggested ways ahead. By laying out the needs of your network and the upgrades that will save your company time and money as you grow, we will create a solid plan specifically for your company. From hardware to software, and units to users, we can breathe new life into your network to ensure the path ahead keeps your systems strong and secure.
