Hello IT Pro, 

Here's a blog post I wrote for MSPs & IT Pros needing to sell the concept of Security Awareness, either into an organization or internally to management. 

Each week we’re updating the full list on our website here. Enjoy.

But on with this week's tools...! Here are the most-interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops and phones this week. As always, EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.


A Free Tool

Google Apps Manager is a command line tool that helps Google G Suite admins easily manage domain and user settings. ninjatoothpick uses it almost daily because it "can be used to do almost anything in Google Apps, like creating/deleting users and groups, managing permissions and roles, and so much more. You can use it to find specific files in gdrive and look at ownership and access too. I've made a whole bunch of scripts that use the options that are available, so I can create a user in a specific domain with specific permissions and a password in specific groups by just calling one script."

A Tip

Credit for this helpful hint goes to AcceptEULA:
"I have\tools burnt into my brain. Blows a lot of folks minds when they realize you can access all that through File Explorer and you can map a drive to it."


Another Free Tool

Splice Admin is a remote Windows administration tool for retrieving information from and interacting with remote machines on your network. Appreciation goes to KlrFly for this recommendation.

A Book

Windows Performance Analysis Field Guide is a practical field guide approach to performance monitoring and analysis. Microsoft expert Clint Huffman explains how to identify and remedy problems with disk, memory, processor and network as well as how to leverage perfomance counters and various tools to troubleshoot. Helps you optimize your MS Windows performance and resolve tricky problems in the best way. Kindly suggested by jeffstokes72.

Yet Another Free Tool

Univention Corporate Server provides you with a central console for managing your entire IT setup simply. Lets you give your domain's users easy access to services and resources while keeping the digital identities under your control. bprfh tells us, "I like univention. You can basically drop in univention AD as a replacement for a windows AD server. Nice webgui and mail server too."


Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments.
