But on with this week’s tools…! Here are the most interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops and phones this week. As always, EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.

A Tool

Lansweeper is an easy-to-use agentless IT asset management and network inventory tool that answers the question: ‘Who is using what?’ Features include a built-in helpdesk ticketing system, an inventory system, remote connection management, and in-depth information on each device. The company offers a free 20-day trial period so you can try it out before investing anything. Recommended by Chess_Not_Checkers as one of the “two things that I couldn’t live without.”


 


A Podcast

Security Now is a podcast where hosts Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte discuss hot topics in security. Gibson is about as expert in security as one can get — he’s the man who literally invented the term spyware and he created the first anti-spyware program. Laporte is founder and owner of the TWiT Netcast Network and has a long history in tech and media. Records live every Tuesday.


 


A Free Tool

Listary is an incredibly fast Windows search utility for finding/moving files and launching applications. Its lightweight interface doesn’t strain system resources, and it integrates with Total Commander, Directory Opus, XYplorer, Xplorer2, WinRAR, FileZilla and other tools. Thanks go to jelloeater85 for the suggestion.


 


A Blog

The Practical Sysadmin is where Josh Reichardt shares the interesting tidbits he discovers while designing and building simple, scalable systems. The blog covers a broad range of tech topics, with some recent areas of interest being building Docker, Rancher, Kubernetes and other distributed systems, as well as automating infrastructure with code.


 


A Free Service

Blacklist Monitor is an RBL monitoring service that can monitor all your IP addresses and domain names and notify you should anything get blacklisted. Helps you quickly find the source of the spam or malware that’s affecting you and immediately begin the delisting process. The service is free for up to 32 IPv4 and domain monitors.


 


Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments.
