Schedule a Complete Network Scan by IP Range

You are free to scan any IP addresses you want without limitation. You can split up subnets to customize their behavior individually. For example, you can choose when specific subnets are scanned, or what devices you want to ignore. You can also configure IP ranges that you’re looking to discover and specify a separate scanning schedule for each range. At the scheduled times, IP address range scanning adds the submitted ranges to your scanning queue. Thanks to the variety of configurable settings, customizable scanning requests are easy to set up.

Profit from Agentless Asset Discovery

Keeping track of every IT asset is a difficult undertaking, especially when you haven’t discovered every asset on your network first. And installing a scanning agent on every device is too time-consuming. You don’t experience that problem with the Lansweeper advanced IP scanner, as it works with various agentless scanning methods, meaning you don’t need to download it on every device.


Instantly Results with Credential-free Device Recognition

Lansweeper values the security and confidentiality of your data and credentials. Everything is encrypted before it is added to your Lansweeper database and the database itself is also protected with a password that is automatically randomized to prevent unauthorized access. But passwords on devices can also slow the scanning process. Avoid having to manually input credentials into secured devices with the Credential-free Device Recognition of Lansweeper

Track Your Assets in Real Time

Our Passive Scanner, named Asset Radar, helps you to track and identify new assets the moment they are connected to your network. It is also IP range independent, which means you don’t need to configure an IP range and start a new scan in order to detect these new devices. The Asset Radar does that for you automatically and instantly, regardless of whether or not the device appears in a previously defined range. This allows for real-time IT management and swift action. It is a feature that is particularly useful to identify unknown or rogue devices or to future-proof your network for new trends like BYOD.
