7 Minute Security

Oct 2, 2020

Hi again! It's sort of fun to release two episodes in one week for a change. If you missed part 1 on our ioT security series, check it out here. Today we dive into some free/cheap monitoring solutions you can use to keep tabs on your ioT network (or any network, really):

  • Nagios - it's old school but gets the job done. This article helped me get it going on an RPi.

  • SolarWinds IP monitor - it was quick and easy to get up and running, but the 40 monitors you're allotted get burned up pretty quick if you have a decent number of devices to monitor

  • PRTG - this is the winner in my book. It has a generous amount of monitors, quick/easy install, and a native mobile app!
