Open Windows shares usually present great security risk and many types of Ransomware scan for open Windows shares in order to spread the infection across networks.

This free tool views all network shares so you can close unsecure open shares to deter Ransomware and other security threats. It allows you to find hidden shares on network, find shared folder paths. Use it to centrally view all network shares instead of listing Windows open shares from command line (net view), running PowerShell scripts (Get-CimInstance Win32_Share cmdlet) or WMI queries (wmic share) on all workstations on your network. You can also create alerts when new file shares are open and receive emails when your users share any new folders.

Sign-up for Action1 Free Edition to install/uninstall software and patches, receive real-time alerts and view instant data from your endpoints, or run live or scheduled queries with the ability to export to CSV or Excel. Action1 Endpoint Security Platform is entirely SaaS, with online web interface (no management tools to install) and it has zero cost for basic functionality. Running in the Cloud, Action1 discovers all of your endpoints in seconds and you can query your entire network in plain English.


Latest Release: Action1 Endpoint Security Platform 2.0, December 20, 2019.
