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:


Security Proof of Value (PoV)

The 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.

Cloud Assessment

A 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.

Network Assessment

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. Request your Network Assessment!

Data Center Virtualization Inventory Assessment

The Data Center Virtualization Inventory Assessment looks for VM issues that may be related to resource allocation, VM hardware levels, VMware Tools versions, cluster memberships, and network configurations. By capturing inventory, it can also provide insight for new hardware refreshes, and quick troubleshooting of any issues that are discovered. Request your Data Center Virtualization Inventory Assessment!

Virtualized Performance Capacity Assessment

The Virtualized Performance & Capacity Assessment is a learning tool that provides a comprehensive analysis with detailed reports designed to improve virtualized environments in configuration, performance, and capacity areas. Request your Virtualized Performance Capacity Assessment!

VMware Virtualized Network Assessment

The VMware Virtual Network Assessment helps IT organizations analyze east-west network traffic patterns and gain visibility into security risks within their VMware environment. This process uncovers opportunities to optimize network performance utilizing micro-segmentation with VMware NSX. Request your VMware Virtualized Network Assessment!

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. Request your EUC Assessment!

Unified Communications 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. Request your Communication Solutions Assessment!


Wireless Health Check (Paid Assessment)

When it comes to mobility, organizations are facing increased pressure to ensure network availability and performance to support an influx of device connectivity. Since many WLAN infrastructures were designed simply for “best effort” connectivity, they are more prone to underperforming with increased numbers of end user devices. Is your wireless LAN built to handle today’s network demands? Request your Wireless Health Check!

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. Request your VMWare Health Check!

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! Request your Security Engagement!
