The Importance of Regular Network Assessments
A network assessment is a comprehensive analysis on an entire IT infrastructure, management, security, ad overall network performance. It can help identify performance gaps, assess network functionality, and uncover areas of improvement. There is no set timeframe on when you should have a network assessment performed, but having it done in Q4 every year can help set your IT strategy for the following year.
Outside of being helpful in setting IT strategies, they can also be beneficial when an organizations IT system becomes too big or too complex. With so many moving parts within a network, it becomes increasing difficult to pinpoint issues, both small and large. The longer a company goes without having a network assessment performed, the more likely a small issue turns into a much larger issue, affecting multiple systems.
An effective network assessment will include:
- A physical inventory
- Cybersecurity evaluation
- Evaluation of network performance
- Security vulnerabilities report
