You can’t shield it if you don’t know what’s out there

Computer Security Day 2017

You can't ensure adequate cybersecurity throughout your organization without an accurate end-to-end view of your IT environment. The discovery of hard- and software data plays a critical role in maintaining an up-to-date synopsis, and leveraging that collected network data is a fundamental starting point for implementing security measures across your organization. This essential discovery phase has been Lansweeper's strong suit throughout the years, but it doesn't stop there. The information that Lansweeper gathers, can be used to analyze and enhance your overall cybersecurity.

The crusade for unauthorized software

Is there any menacing software installed on the corporate workstations in your organization? Lansweeper enables you to mark identified software as authorized, unauthorized and neutral. Using one of the built-in reports, keeping track of unauthorized software installations is just one click away.

Assess your defense strategy

Is your Windows infrastructure protected against viruses? Identify if there are any Windows devices without anti-virus software and whether the anti-virus is up-to-date. Several built-in reports assist you in pinpointing possible vulnerabilities in your network.

Check for breaches in the wall

Do your Windows devices have the latest hotfixes? As notably demonstrated by our WannaCry ransomware report that we released in May, Lansweeper can be used to retrieve Windows machines that are missing crucial hotfixes to mitigate vulnerabilities. Scan your assets regularly and use Lansweeper reports to be alerted of missing hotfixes.

Have an up-to-date garrison

Are your assets covered? Check the warranty for your Dell, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, Lenovo or Toshiba assets to make sure that your assets are still under coverage with the manufacturer. Quickly identify which assets are out of warranty by using our built-in reports.

Only lower the drawbridge for allies

Do you know your administrators? Lansweeper helps you to authorize administrators on an asset-by-asset basis or for an entire domain. Capture all the unauthorized administrators via a built-in report so that you can control who can manage your assets.
