Lansweeper Agent (LsAgent)

Tags lansweeper

Lansweeper is an IT asset management and network inventory software used by IT Services to assist with maintenance of University-owned computers

Lansweeper includes a scanning agent called LsAgent which is a cross-platform, lightweight program that can be installed on Windows, Linux and Mac computers and that automatically collects an inventory from the computer it's installed on. LsAgent sends scanned data back to your Lansweeper installation, either directly or through our relay server in the cloud. Data is securely sent to the relay server over HTTPS, stored in an encrypted format and deleted once a scanning server has retrieved it. Thanks to the relay server connectivity, LsAgent can even scan computers outside of our network and over the Internet.
