Services Network Asset Compliance Center software (NACC)
Almost any organisation depends upon smooth operation of the network. Malfunctions or outage are not acceptable. Avit’s Network Asset Compliance Center (NACC) provides real-time in-depth insight into the network of the organisation: what network equipment is being used, where the equipment is located, what its software and security status is and whether, contractually, support is provided. This information gives you the insight to decide when what equipment has to be replaced (life cycle management as well as future-proof budgeting), what management activities are needed – such as software updates – and whether there are any security issues to be solved. As a result: better guarantees for network availability and business continuity.
Reduced security risks
It would require a lot of work to retrieve this information manually, and so a lot of money. However, without this information all kind of unexpected problems may occur and unforeseen actions will be required to solve this. There may also be security issues nobody knows about. Furthermore, without this information it is unfeasible to set up a solid network policy as also to verify whether such policy is actually complied with – i.e. is compliant. As a result, you can stay ‘in control’, whereas compliancy regarding security (GDPR) is also simplified.
Network Asset Compliance Center
The Network Asset Compliance Center collects (by means of a collector integrated in the network) asset data of Cisco network components. These data are analysed and completed, inter alia with information about support contracts and security risks. NACC gives insight into all this through an online portal. With this information, you can immediately undertake targeted actions, and make well-informed choices. For instance, making the right investments at the right time in a well-considered manner so as to adjust the network to the demands of the organisation, in the best possible way.
