Scan your network for devices online

Are you aware of all the devices – USB sticks, CDs, floppies, smartphones, MP3 players, handhelds, iPods, digital cameras – that have been connected to your network? As an administrator, do you know how many employees have been using or are using portable storage devices at the moment? Monitoring your network for these devices is not only time-consuming but nearly impossible to do manually. With GFI’s free web utility EndPointScan you can actually check within minutes what devices are or have been connected to computers in your network and by whom!

Why?
Often the weakest link in security is not the technology but the people who use it. The extensive use of portable storage devices on your network can expose it to unintentional and malicious security threats and result in data theft, virus attacks, legal complications and loss of productivity. Knowing what devices are on your network today is the first step towards minimizing these risks which can be mitigated with endpoint security software.

How it works

EndPointScan report

Click on the Scan my network! button. If this is the first time you are using EndPointScan, an ActiveX control (0.7MB) must be downloaded and installed on your computer. Select 'Yes' when prompted to download this control. EndPointScan will then prompt you to select which computers on your network should be scanned for plugged-in devices.

Once a scan is completed, EndPointScan will display scan results in a graphical report. The report includes device usage, device threat level and computer risk level. The information presented refers to devices connected both currently and historically. Click here to view a sample report.

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or later with Internet security settings set to Medium. Please note that this version of EndPointScan does not work with Mozilla FireFox.
