Unified IT Debuts Zero-Impact Network Health Assessment: Pinpoints Weaknesses Quickly and Quietly
Do You Know How Much it Costs Your Business when your Network goes down?
In a recent study, Law firms with up to 10 people in the office found that losing just 1 hour of downtime per week can cost up to $6000 per incident! And this was just between lost billable hours and cost of wages amongst the office!
Have you ever calculated the value of the time of your office? Every time your office goes down it is costing you money. Unified IT has found that on average over 70% of small to medium sized businesses, don’t realize the value of lost time in the office. What’s worse is that 90% of these businesses are at risk of security threats in their network. What’s shocking is that another 75% of small to medium businesses are on the borderline of network failure!
Unified IT, Melbourne’s #1 Choice for IT services and support for small and medium businesses (SMEs), just announced its new Zero-Impact Network Health Assessment. Using powerful, automated tools running on the network, Unified IT maps corporate networks and their devices and identifies points of weakness or misconfiguration in only a few hours, with no impact on network or system performance.
“Network Assessments are an essential step in resolving congestion, detecting violations such as rogue access points and identifying problems with configuration, security and other weaknesses,” said Goran Kurkioski, Director of CIO Services for Unified IT. “Yet, many companies—especially SMEs—either don’t understand the importance of Network Assessments or are hesitant to do them because of the days of disruption some methods cause in the past. Our automated solution runs via a laptop connection to the network, and all operations take place in the background with no network degradation. Users don’t even know the assessment is being conducted.”
Unified IT’s Network Assessment service is fully secure, does not harvest or transmit sensitive data, and leaves no traces on the network. After completion, Unified IT analyzes the assessment results and develops a comprehensive report identifying network issues and weak spots, with recommendations for necessary upgrades and, if requested, suggestions for improvements or expansions.
Report highlights include:
- Network “Risk Report”: A summary of the overall risk score, with easy-to-follow charts identifying problem areas and conflicts
- Best-Practices Deviation Report: Pressure-point issues that warrant investigation
- Inventory of network devices (routers, printers, PCs, servers and more), including rogue devices operating without the company’s knowledge
- Network access weaknesses such as outdated permissions or insecure passwords
- Inventory of installed applications, servers, and other software and hardware with recommendations for best-practices configuration and management
“Over time, as network configurations change, or users and devices are added or deleted, problems slip into the network undetected,” says Kurkioski. “Many companies unwittingly have network issues that create persistent network degradation or even expose business assets to assault. A Network Assessment is the first step in correcting these and other problems.”
For a Limited Time Only, Unified IT is offering A Complimentary Network Health Assessment (Value: $997).
