Spotlight: Spiceworks Network Monitor update now includes IoT


Spiceworks added the ability to monitor and manage Internet of Things devices to its Spiceworks Network Monitor. The free tool enables users to monitor and manage servers and network – and now IoT – devices in real time. The IoT is an incredibly broad definition of device types, but what Spiceworks really has in mind for enterprise monitoring are things like security cameras, printers, projectors, appliances and industry-specific devices in various verticals. That's not to say Network Monitor is limited to those types of enterprise and industrial IoT devices, but they may be some of the more common managed devices within an enterprise.
