End Point Scan

Scan for devices connected to your network. Are you aware of all the devices that have been connected to your network, such as: USB sticks, CDs, floppies, smartphones, MP3 players, handhelds, iPods, digital cameras? 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 .
