Simple device discovery using Open-AudIT
By Mark Unwin, Open-AudIT Founder and Product Architect, Opmantek.
Open-AudIT will discover any device on your network.
Using the correct credentials will allow Open-AudIT to retrieve a great deal of information about any given device via SNMP, SSH or WMI.
Windows, Linux, OSX, AIX and VMware have specific audit scripts that can be run against the target device and will do so automatically as part of discovery.
Other network devices that respond to SNMP can have their most important attributes retrieved.
When running a Discovery session you can automatically assign any detected devices to a location and/or organization.
Check out the video below to see how quickly you can see exactly what is connected to your network – if it’s connected, Open-AudIT will find it!
