Network health checklist
How well does your network perform?
You rely on your network to communicate with your employees, customers, prospects, and suppliers. What’s more, your network links your company to public and private cloud services and applications that are critical to your business operations. Offsite backup and other IT functions also rely on your network.
Performance bottlenecks from social media, streaming applications, faulty hardware, and lost connections can negatively impact both your employee productivity and customer experience. Ensuring the continuous health of your network keeps systems running smoothly and available when you need them.
How secure is your network?
Keeping your network in compliance with ever-changing standards—through monitoring, endpoint protection, content filtering, and other intrusion detection technologies—is a good start toward ensuring your network is protected from security threats that can threaten uptime and performance. You can also train your employees on the implications of phishing emails and how to identify one. Teach them to avoid malicious links in unsolicited scam emails. Underscore the importance of a strong password and steps to take to keep data private. A comprehensive security assessment can further protect your valuable time, money, and reputation.
How efficient and flexible is your network?
As technology advances at an exponential rate, network solutions continue to evolve, providing better value and performance for your business. Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) allows companies to mix and match networking solutions from multiple carriers in an efficient and effective manner. If properly optimized, SD-WAN provides you the best performance at the most competitive price. What’s more, SD-WAN provides capability for failover for your most important voice and data systems.
