Network Inventory Solutions
One of an MSP’s best offerings is the ability to help their customer evaluate the current condition of their network and plan for its future growth. MSP RMM from SolarWinds MSP (formerly LOGICnow) gives MSPs the ability to track network inventory and data assets in real time, provide reports on bandwidth usage and performance and make integration easy with a customer’s established vendors and systems.
Comprehensive Network Inventory Software
MSP RMM can change the way MSPs deliver service to their clients. The endpoint data from an entire network is visible on one comprehensive dashboard, keeping MSPs from having to monitor different pieces of software. The data provided assists in knowing what devices and applications are on client networks at all times, shows you which items are a security risk and helps you manage day-to-day network maintenance tasks.
This network inventory management solution will also give you the ability to track critical software updates such as new security patches, using data-driven insights to save you time, money and bandwidth. This results in safer networks and happy customers.
Data Insights for Network Management
MSP RMM uses big data and collective intelligence to provide three levels of network analytics. Level one allows you to obtain an accurate description of your IT environment. Based on this data, you receive a second level of analysis on potential upcoming problems within your network. The third level provides proactive solutions to the impending problems identified.
The network inventory data provided includes:
- How many devices are on a network, along with their IP addresses, function and the applications running on them
- An accurate network diagram, showing infrastructure connectivity based on current policies
- The most sensitive data on the network and how it is protected
- Notification of unauthorized user access
- Usage logs, network traffic and security alarms
Based on these analytics, MSPs and their customers can make informed decisions as to whether they should automate security actions, reduce data risk and update policies and procedures. These decisions can all be made with dollar-based risk assessment available through SolarWinds MSP's MSP Risk Intelligence.
Analyzing Network Inventory Data
MSP Risk Intelligence provides not only assigns real dollars to data vulnerability but also helps you make the case for investing in data security to key stakeholders.
With MSP Risk Intelligence, you’ll enjoy:
- An automated risk assessment that will put dollars and cents on the cost of security
- A scan for where sensitive data is stored and how it is protected
- A vulnerability scan of every device on the network
- Real-time notifications of unauthorized network access
- A PCI scan for compliance issues

Layered Network Security Controls
IT environments get more complex by the day, and security is a central focus for both customers and MSPs. The layered network security protocols by SolarWinds MSP provide a better way to monitor what's happening and prevent future data loss and security breaches, no matter the size of your customer’s network.
According to the New York Times, “60% of all online attacks in 2014 targeted small and midsize businesses.” A layered security approach enables MSPs to strengthen network security and provide a best in class security service, which includes the proactive, detective and reactive security a customer wants and needs.
Proactive security means you have things like proper policies and network monitoring in place to prevent threats before they happen. In a world where new threats occur every day, having detective security on the network is also a must, as it allows you to quickly catch and defuse any threat that might be trying to get in. Reactive security gives you and your customer the peace of mind that even when something happens, you will be able to recover them quickly to a safe data and network environment.
