NWN helps you assess and reduce risk by utilizing technology assessments and proof of values to examine your environment and identify potential technology issues. We work with our customers to arm them with the knowledge they need to create a technology plan that works for them. Our technology expertise and strong partnerships with major manufacturers allows us to bring the following technology assessments to our customers:
COMPLIMENTARY TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT SERVICES
NWN’s Security Proof of Value (POV) assessment program is a consultative security assessment that identifies potential security risks and threats for end users. Offered through NWN, the program provides customers with a simplified solution to look at their security environment holistically without a large expense. As cybersecurity threats continue to expand, organizations must make sure their infrastructure is ready. Today, an attack will happen to your organization, its not a matter of if but when.
NWN’s Cloud Assessment drives decision making by removing the confusion and creating a place where relevant data on your environment is easily accessible. This assessment can be accomplished in as little as two weeks and offers discovery of, but not limited to, all on-premise assets, network bandwidth requirements, application/server dependency, and multiple public cloud vendor instance matching based on performance. NWN’s Cloud Technology Assessment provides you the actionable intelligence you need to make qualified decisions about your infrastructure environment whether it be on premise or cloud based.
What if there was a surefire way to plan for the future of your IT Infrastructure? What if you could save up to 30% on hardware? NWN will complete a Network Assessment to thoroughly highlight areas of concern. At the completion of the assessment we invite you to join our experts in a workshop to review the results in detail and discuss solutions. NWN will install the software, monitor and collect data for a few weeks, at no cost to you. NWN then compiles findings and recommendations for customers in a personalized master assessment audit report.
The NWN Data Center assessment provides transparency into the performance of some of the most common datacenter systems that could be affecting the performance of your key business applications. The assessment also enables you to make informed decisions before performance issues become a concern for the business.
End User Computing Assessment
The NWN EUC assessment provides transparency into the performance of some of the most common endpoints and application that could be affecting the performance of your key business applications. The assessment also enables you to make informed decisions before performance issues become a concern for the business.
PAID TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT SERVICES
NWN Wireless Health Check (Paid Assessment)
Mobility has become “the go to” standard for enterprise connectivity today. As more and more devices are connecting to wireless networks, organizations are facing increased pressure to ensure the availability and performance of the network is enterprise grade. Many WLAN infrastructures that were built for “best effort” connectivity are significantly underperforming or failing completely with the increased number of end user devices. Overtime, it’s important to reassess your current WLAN infrastructure capacity and scalability. NWN’s WLAN Health Check will validate your WLAN Infrastructure and look at your available bandwidth, RF Interference, and security procedures.
NWN VMWare Health Check (Paid Assessment)
NWN’s VSphere Technology Assessment is a best practice health check that gives you the visibility you need to proactively ensure service levels. Utilize the Intelligent Operational Dashboard to optimize resource usage, and manage your dynamic virtual and cloud environments. Instead of reacting to problems, you will be able to tackle them before they arise.
NWN Unified Communications Health Check (Paid Assessment)
The Communication Solutions Health Check is an assessment of the health of your Cisco Unified Communications infrastructure to identify security, performance, and configuration problems before enhanced collaboration features are deployed. Misconfigured or under-performing network components can impact many critical operations such as service discovery, contact source searches, and presences information. The tools and guidance provided by NWN in this engagement are used to evaluate and assess your Unified Communications environment to determine what needs to be corrected, if anything, before adding additional collaboration services to your system.
NWN Security Engagement (Paid Assessment)
In a recent security survey, less than half of businesses surveyed were confident in their ability to determine the scope of a network compromise and to remediate damage. But, an overwhelming majority of finance and line-of-business executives agreed that regulators and investors expect companies to provide greater transparency on future cybersecurity risk. This engagement helps you prepare for the new age of security!
