Hello IT Pro, 

It’s Tuesday again, and you know what that means—more useful and interesting tips are on the way. As usual, EveryCloud is not affiliated with any of the brands below, unless we specifically state otherwise.


Lansweeper is a system that allows for IT asset management and inventory management that can run without an agent. It’s simple to use and keeps track of every item in the register. You can quickly and easily find out who’s got a piece of inventory out with a few clicks of the mouse.

You’ll be able to manage connections remotely and be able to access all the details of each device in the inventory. It’s a paid service, but the company allows you to try it out for free for 20 days before committing to buy. Chess_Not_Checkers told us about this tool and says that it’s one of the things he couldn’t live without.

Security Now

This podcast, hosted by Leo Laporte and Steve Gibson, is all about the latest in the security industry. Gibson is the person who coined the term spyware and came up with the first software to combat it. Laporte founded the Twit Netcast Network and is very experienced in media and tech. 


This search utility is blazingly fast and will help you find or move files or launch applications. It’s light on system resources and will integrate with:

  • Directory Opus

  • Xplorer2

  • XYplorer

  • Total Commander

  • WinRAR

  • FileZilla

  • And many others

Thank you for jelloeater85 for letting us know about this cool tool.


The Practical Sysadmin

Josh Reichardt’s blog is an outlet for him to share his experience in the design and build of systems that are both simple and scalable. You’ll find a wide selection of topics covering various area of technology. You’ll also find interesting information on building distributed systems like Rancher, Docker and Kubernetes. You can also pick up some useful tips on how automating the infrastructure using code can help make the process smoother.

Blacklist Monitor

This is a free monitoring service you’ll want to check out. It monitors all the domain names and IP addresses you use and notifies you if any of them are blacklisted. It will also help you find what caused the issue and help you start the process of being removed from the blacklists. You can cover up to 32 domain monitors and IPv4.


Enjoy your week ahead, and remember to keep those comments coming.
