Computerlinks Launches New Network Health Check Service

Distributor of IT security and Internet technology solutions Computerlinks has announced the availability of a new network vulnerability scanning service designed to help channel partners illustrate return on security investment and check regularly that their customers’ networks are operating at the right level of security.

Kathryn Harding, professional services manager at Computerlinks comments, “Our new network health check service provides an excellent top-level method of detecting security holes in an organisation’s network and e-commerce/web applications. This service can be used to highlight security flaws such as perimeter weaknesses and mis-configured servers, making a sound case for security investment. Following installation of security technology, the service should be used regularly to analyse the environment to demonstrate continued return on investment.”

Computerlinks’ new service delivers essential information about the following, along with recommendations to solve the issues:

– Perimeter status and defence mechanisms

– Potential exploitable vulnerabilities

– Unpatched and misconfigured servers

This assessment health check service has been developed in response to clear demand from the channel for a lower cost service to provide a snapshot of an organisations security. The new network vulnerability scanning service provides high and recurring margins whilst offering an entry-level service to security testing opportunities. Computerlinks’ resellers can offer it as a one off assessment of an organisations perimeter security, as part of a full network assessment including an internal health check, a regular vulnerability check, or as a precursor for a more in depth penetration test.
