Clientless Network Scan Tool for Preliminary Technology Assessment
Posted on 2014-08-30
We are searching for a tool that will allow us to perform a scan of a businesses network from inside their network to help identify trouble spots.
We need to scan approximately 400 devices. Primarily Windows workstations.
The information we’d like to obtain is:
- IP of Device
- Operating System Version (Windows XP vs. Windows 7, for example)
- Manf. Date of Device
- Anti-virus installed?
- Anti-virus out of date?
- NIC Type (Gigabit or 100mbs)
We are performing a preliminary assessment and are thus not yet ready to deploy a remote monitoring tool which is designed to operate on an on-going basis. I know that this tool, complete with clients on each workstation could provide us with the the information we’re seeking.
For our initial assessment - we’re looking for a clientless solution.
#1 Can we get the information we’re seeking without a client?
#2 We will have administrator access to any on-premise servers but are not yet aware of the OS’s. Can we get it using this?
#3 Can you recommend a product or tool that would accomplish our needs?
Thank you for your advice!
