Notable Features

Unlimited Assessment Targets

O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner supports unlimited assessment targets. An Active Directory Forest is a target in O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner terminology. Though different targets are supported by O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner, main target is Active Directory Forest under which all other targets such as Microsoft Hyper-V, Exchange Servers, and SQL Servers, operates. Every Active Directory Forest that needs to be checked via O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner must be registered and discovered in O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner. Active Directory Forests running Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2016 are supported.

Unlimited Assessment Profiles

Assessment Profiles are backbone of O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner. An Assessment Profile includes Active Directory Forest and Dynamic Packs. In O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner, we can create multiple assessment profiles containing separate AD Forests and Dynamic Packs of your choice.

Dynamic Solution

One of the benefits O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner provides is that it supports importing new Dynamic Packs from Dynamic Packs Server and/or from Dynamic Pack file. You can design new Dynamic Packs and import into O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner.

Report Issues, Severity and Recommendations

O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner not just performs health and risk Checks, but also reports issue severity and recommendations to fix the issues. The Issue Severity and Recommendations are defined in the Dynamic Packs which can be modified using Packs Manager.

Credential Support

If you are managing multiple Active Directory Forests under O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner, you can add credentials for each Active Directory Forest. Once credentials are added O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner can connect to AD Forest managed by the Assessment Profile and do the assessment.

Hybrid Dynamic Packs

Currently, O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner ships with Microsoft Active Directory, Office 365 & Azure, Exchange Server, Hyper-V and SQL Server Dynamic Packs. We continue to design new Dynamic Packs for Hyper-V, VMWare, Azure, Office 365, Windows Servers, Windows Clients, SQL Servers, and Exchange Servers are made available via Import Packs section of O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner.

Design Your Own Health Check or Customize Existing Health Checks

In case you need to perform Health and Risk Check of a specific technology component let’s say Azure or VMWare, either you can use Packs Manager to design the Dynamic Packs or request us to design for you.

Import Dynamic Packs from Server

We design new Dynamic Packs every month. You can import new Dynamic Packs from within the O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner console and use them.

Customize Reporting

Reporting Module can help customize the report based on a Word Template. It supports modifying Severity of the issue and add your own comments against each issue. You can add your own reporting fields.

Dynamic Packs

A Dynamic Pack consists of PowerShell code. Dynamic Packs can be used to perform Health Check, collect information and maintain health of targets. Currently, O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner provides 74 Dynamic Packs for Active Directory and all of Dynamic Packs are designed by industry experts such as Microsoft MVPs and IT Experts. Active Directory Dynamic Packs can perform a thorough health check of Active Directory Forests.

Here is the list of Microsoft Active Directory Dynamic Packs that ship with O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner:

How It Works

O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner is a unique solution and dynamic in nature. We provide two components as part of the O365 IT Risk & Health Scanner; O365 IT Health & Risk Scanner Execution SubSystem and Dynamic Packs.

  • O365 IT Scanner Execution SubSystem provides execution environment for executing PowerShell-based Dynamic Packs.
  • Dynamic Packs are PowerShell-based scripts which are imported into the Execution SubSystem. Once imported Dynamic Packs can be added to Assessment Profiles which contains an assessment target. When you execute Assessment Profile, the Dynamic Packs are executed as part of the execution against the assessment target maintained by the profile.

As it is shown in the figure above, you will be required to register a target which is always an Active Directory Forest. Multiple Active Directory Forests can be registered. Once registered, create a profile which contains both Active Directory Forest and Dynamic Packs.
