Computing devices employed across today’s organizations change and grow at a dramatic rate while IT resources and staffing budgets often remain constant. Bradford Networks’ HealthCheck Service enables you to realize the full value of your Network Sentry solution, while continuing to meet your changing business requirements.

Bradford Networks’ HealthCheck Service deliverables include:

  • Statement of Work
  • Two (2) days service time with remote assessment and tuning of the following:
    • Server and agent configuration
    • Communications
    • Device and user profiling
    • Auditing and reporting
    • Alerting
    • Network provisioning
    • Endpoint remediation
    • Integrations

Statement of Work (SOW): To plan the project, Bradford Networks’ Project Manager works with the customer to create an SOW that documents the stakeholders, requirements, process, deliverables and schedule for the HealthCheck session. The SOW forms the basis for the service.

Server and Agent Configuration: To ensure that Network Sentry is configured for maximum performance and the best user experience, the Service Engineer reviews current configurations and determines what needs to be tuned.

Communications: Because communication between Network Sentry and the network infrastructure and endpoint devices is crucial for maintaining an up-to-date view of the network, the Service Engineer will validate this functionality.

Device and User Profiling: The key to providing flexible yet secure network access to devices and users is to ensure the Network Sentry’s profiling rules are configured properly for your environment. The Service Engineer will review and modify these rules as appropriate.

Auditing and Reporting: Collecting historical network access data is critical to providing the audit trail and perspective often needed to resolve a security incident. The Service Engineer will verify that Network Sentry’s report generation and distribution is configured properly for monitoring and logging users and devices connecting to the network.

Alerting: Based on your notification requirements, the Service Engineer will verify events and alarms are configured for detecting and notifying security anomalies and violations that require investigation, as well as disabling those that are not of concern.

Network Provisioning: The risk profile for a device attempting to connect to a network can determine the level of access that is provided. The Service Engineer will adjust the corresponding provisioning rules for full, guest, or restricted access.

Remediation: The Service Engineer can provide assistance in improving the user experience for the self-remediation process when a device is identified as at risk and isolated.

Integrations: If you have integrated the Network Sentry with third-party solutions such as an Intrusion Detection System (IDS), the Service Engineer can verify that it is communicating correctly with Network Sentry.
