Downloads

Network Detective Application
Network Detective Application Required The Network Detective Application and Reporting Tool is a rich .Net application that is used to generate Network Detective reports. This is installed on your workstations/laptops; it is not intended to be installed on your client or prospect sites. The Network Detective Report Generator requires .NET 3.5 to run.
Data Collectors
BDR Needs Assessment
BDR Data Collector Required The BDR Data Collector is a special purpose windows application that performs the data collections for the BDR Assessment.

Run the BDR Data Collector on any computer in the network using Domain Admin rights or with shared rights in a workgroup. You will need to know hostname or IP address of the domain controller.

Copy the file(s) to a USB drive (or email/transfer to yourself) for importing into the Network Detective Application/Report Generator.
This download is a self-extracting zip file and does not require installation when run on client systems.

This data collector requires .NET 3.5 to run.



If the target system does NOT have .NET 3.5, download the legacy data collector.

Remote collection relies on WMI. Please ensure that WMI is available on the network and systems are able to be access via WMI. If you are able, you can set group policy to allow WMI access in mass.
BDR Push Deploy Tool Optional The BDR Push-Deploy Tool pushes the local data collector to machines in a specified range and saves the scan files to a specified directory (which can also be a network share). The benefit of the tool is that a local scan can be run simultaneously on each computer from a centralized location. During the local scan, the BDR local data collector will assess disk space requirements, partitions, connected storage, as well as looking for use of cloud applications and storage. The Push-Deploy Tool can be run from any machine on the network. Documentation can be found in Appendix V of the Network Detective User Guide.

Network Detective - Computer Data Collector Optional The Computer Data Collector is a windows application that is run on individual computers (workstations or servers) to collect information for each system. Use this if/when WMI and other network protocols are blocked from working over the network from the Network Data Collector scan, or when scanning non-Domain networks.
This download is a self-extracting zip file and does not require installation.

Output is a ".cdf" file. Copy this file for merging with the ZIP/NDF file when importing into the Network Detective application.

This data collector requires .NET 3.5 to run.



If the target system does NOT have .NET 3.5, download the legacy data collector.
Network Detective Mac OSX Computer Data Collector Optional The Mac OSX Computer Data Collector is a Mac application (OS X Snow Leopard or later) that is run on individual computers (workstations or servers) to collect information for that system. Use this to collect computer information from Mac systems to be merged into the network data collection.

This data collector is a version of computer data collector only and cannot perform Security Assessments or Network Data Collection.
This download is a zip file and does not require installation. Unzip it, then launch the application.

Output is a ".cdf" file. Copy this file for merging with the ZIP/NDF file when importing into the Network Detective application.
Network Detective Linux Computer Data Collector (BETA) Optional The Linux Computer Data Collector is a Linux application (works on most modern Linux versions) that is run on individual computers (workstations or servers) to collect information for that system. Use this to collect computer information from Linux systems to be merged into the network data collection.

This data collector is a version of computer data collector only and cannot perform Security Assessments or Network Data Collection.
This download is a tar gzip file and does not require installation. Unzip it, then launch the application using the command below:

tar zxf NetworkDetectiveLinuxCollector.tar.gz | ./NetworkDetectiveLinuxCollector

Output is a ".cdf" file with the filename -.cdf. Copy this file for merging with the ZIP/NDF file when importing into the Network Detective application.
