Microsoft Cloud Assessment Module combines automated data collection with a structured framework for documenting your assessment.
As the computing world steadily moves more resources into the Cloud, it is getting increasingly difficult for Stakeholder/ business owners and IT professionals
to manage assets and configurations that are no longer physically present . . . and that they do not have complete control over. With the rapid proliferation of the
Microsoft Cloud – which includes the popular Azure infrastructure and Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) suite of applications and services, – most organizations
are operating in some kind of “hybrid” cloud/on-premises environment, and many others have moved completely to the Cloud.
What Does the Microsoft Cloud Assessment Cover?
This module helps you manage and assess risk across your entire Microsoft Cloud deployment. It assesses and documents several components, including.
· Microsoft 365 Cloud Services
· Office 365
· OneDrive (does not scan file content)
· Outlook/Exchange (does not scan email content)
· Microsoft Azure Cloud Services
· Azure Active Directory
A Necessity for Ongoing Cloud-based Services
Managing Cloud environments frequently becomes a documentation and support nightmare, as they grow and expand “organically” by the users and teams who
access it. IT Professionals can easily lose track, and lose control, over the environment, opening the door to misconfigurations that can lead to security incidents.
By periodically running a full assessment on each Microsoft Cloud environment, IT professionals can provide themselves, and their stakeholders, with essential
reports that will help control the flow, privacy, and security of the organization’s data.
Having all this information, organized and at your fingertips, is essential for:
· A new technician who is trying to get a handle on the Microsoft Cloud environment
· A Cloud administrator who is trying to hunt down a misconfiguration that is causing problems.
· An MSP who needs to scope a proposal for a prospective new client.
· Curbing the sprawl and potential HR headaches of Teams, Exchange, Office 365, SharePoint, and OneDrive.
The Fastest & Most Comprehensive Microsoft Cloud Assessment
We’ve taken our proven Network Auditor data-gathering and reporting technology and extended its reach into the Cloud to provide IT professionals with critical visibility
and control over virtual computing environments.

See what is inside the Microsoft Cloud Infrastructure
With the rapid proliferation of the Microsoft Cloud – which includes the popular Azure infrastructure and Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) suite of applications and services,
– most organizations are operating in some kind of “hybrid” cloud/on-premises environment, and many others have moved completely to the Cloud.
Microsoft Cloud Assessment Module sheds light on the Microsoft Cloud with a wide range of reports on BOTH the Azure infrastructure AND the core Microsoft 365 services
running on it.
Until now, lack of visibility into what a prospect’s Microsoft Cloud environment looks like — and what shape it is in. Microsoft Cloud Assessment module pulls away the shroud of mystery by generating revealing reports that document the size and scope of the Azure AD and Microsoft 365 environments, similar to our on-premises Network Assessment
module. In fact, you get the same familiar client facing Risk Report and Management Plan Report
Plugs Unaddressed Security Gaps
By definition, cloud-based solutions are always exposed to outside attackers and continual vigilance is needed to ensure misconfigurations don’t lead to security incidents.
Microsoft cloud Assessment Module taps into Microsoft’s own security scoring system to expose areas of highest risks and vulnerability, to help their IT Professionals improve overall network security. It also includes comparative security benchmarks, measured against similar sized organizations, to help IT Professionals evaluate their own performance.
Saves Technicians Countless Hours
Unlike using Microsoft’s own Admin Tools – which rely on a web interface and requires manual drilling up and down through complex entities and relationships to
figure out what is going on, Network Auditor saves technicians countless hours by automatically gathering all information about the Azure AD and Microsoft 365
environment that Microsoft exposes, and converts it into meaningful reports.
Nothing Else Like It, and More to Come!
As Microsoft continues to build out its APIs to allow expanded access into its Cloud environment, we will leverage that access to provide IT Professionals with even
more insights through expanded reports.
