Hello IT Pro, 

The reason EveryCloud was created 10 years ago was to help IT Pros do their jobs better. It’s also why we publish IT Pro Tuesday. It’s been a winning strategy that our clients really appreciate. The growth of EveryCloud has proven that.

If you’d like to experience the EveryCloud difference yourself, why not give our free trial a spin? If you have already and are eager to get onboard, request a quote.

Now, let’s get back to the tips for this week. As usual, we’re not affiliated with any of the brands listed below unless we specifically say so. 

Starting Off with a Bang

Are you looking for a new telnet and SSH client? PuTTY offers a highly effective, free, open-source solution. It was initially made for Windows, but you can get the source code as well so it can be adapted.


Security Onion

This open-source Linux distribution is designed to improve your security. It’s a whiz at intrusion detection, makes monitoring enterprise security simpler and has a log management function as well. The developers have also created a super-simple setup wizard, so you can quite easily build sensors for your whole network.

It includes:

  • Logstash
  • Elasticsearch
  • Kibana
  • Suricata
  • Snort
  • Bro
  • Squil
  • Wazuh
  • CyberChef
  • NetworkMiner
  • Squert
  • And a lot more.

Your Universal Multiboot Installer does what you’d think – helps you create a bootable drive for a range of operating systems, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, antivirus utilities and so on. That might not sound like a big deal, but  wait until you hear how it does so.

The software doesn’t make use of the normal grub to help you boot the ISO files. Instead, it first uses syslinux and boots extracted distributions. If necessary, it will use a grub when booting a variety of ISO files. Videoflyguy likes it because it’s an easy way to install many ISOs to a single drive. You can even remove one or two of the ISOs if you need to add updated versions.


That’s about it for today. Remember to bookmark our main list and to comment with any suggestions you might have.
