in Utilities (E)

[prMac.com] Minsk, Belarus - Happymagenta has released update 1.9 for Scany - a powerful multifunctional networking instrument for finding connected devices, looking up detailed device information, network troubleshooting, scanning ports, testing network security and firewalls. Scany - one of the most popular networking apps of the last year in many countries according to App Store downloads stats.

The good about Scany is that it offers lots of useful tools in addition to its primary feature of scanning your Wi-Fi, LAN or any other network and providing detailed information about any device connected to it, its domain and network names, addresses and vendor. Scany also includes a whole set of networking utilities - ping, traceroute, remote wake (WOL), Whois, Geo IP and shows information about active network connections along with the external IP address of your router.

The recent update to Scany that comes with the interface available in many languages, Retina display optimized graphics and renewed icons also features a full support of internationalized domains and significantly improved Whois.

Scany is easy to use - just type in the domain name of a web site, the IP address of a server or any other networking device and Scany will do everything possible to get the maximum of detailed information about it - will scan for open ports and running services, will detect the hardware manufacturer and all network names assigned to the device, network address range, round trip time and also will provide an easy access to the Whois database for all device's domain names and IP addresses.

To scan the whole network and to find all devices connected to it just type in the starting and the ending IP addresses that are automatically detected in case of scanning the current Wi-Fi or LAN network address range.

It is also worth noting that implementing special scanning techniques Scany finds even hidden networking devices on a Wi-Fi or a LAN, whose owners do not want to advertize their presence for various reasons and hide, for example, behind a firewall. This feature is useful for testing if anyone is using your Wi-Fi access point, office or home network without your permission.

There is no need to think on how to set up Scany - the app works perfectly with default settings, which along with the use of asynchronous networking algorithms allow achieving the highest speed of scanning. There are also a number of flexible settings that allow the complete control over the scanning process for advanced users.

Tools like ones that Scany includes are in use all the time by both the security experts and the hackers for gathering information about networking objects.

Thus Scany helps owners and administrators of web sites, home and office networks to look at their properties through the eyes of hackers, to test their firewalls settings and to detect if it is something unwanted is open to the outer Internet that may become the vulnerability which potentially hackers can take advantage of.
