Use cases

There are several use cases that benefit from the data provided through the Device Recognition API. Contact us to explore additional use cases not listed here.

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)

SASE is a cloud-native cybersecurity architecture that merges network security functions with wide-area networking capabilities. It ensures secure access to applications and services for users, regardless of their location or device, by integrating networking and security features into a unified, cloud-based platform. Proper device identification is crucial for ensuring user legitimacy, and our Device Recognition technology is particularly effective with unidentified devices.

Zero Trust Security Model

Zero Trust operates on the principle of "never trust, always verify," requiring strict identity verification for every person and device attempting to access resources on a private network, regardless of their location. Lansweeper aids in identifying unmanaged devices that could potentially engage in unauthorized actions on the network.

Air-Gapped Networks

Air-gapped networks are isolated from external networks, such as the Internet, to provide high security by preventing unauthorized access and data exfiltration. This makes them suitable for sensitive or classified information. Our offline database offering from the Device Recognition service enhances the security of air-gapped networks by recognizing devices without compromising network isolation.

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

EDR solutions continuously monitor end-user devices to detect and respond to cyber threats, offering real-time threat detection, analysis, and automated investigation and mitigation for incidents on both computers and mobile devices. Combining this with Lansweeper’s device recognition technology helps identify unmanaged devices that could pose potential threats.

Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

XDR complements traditional EDR by providing an independent baseline for assessing the completeness of data scope, enhancing overall threat detection and response capabilities.

Network Detection and Response (NDR)

The Device Recognition technology, supported by machine learning, improves understanding of the devices entering or using your network, facilitating more effective investigation and response to suspicious activities.

Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR)

Our technology enables partners to gain a comprehensive understanding of customer environments, allowing them to orchestrate and automate incident response more efficiently, enhancing the overall cybersecurity posture.


By leveraging Fing’s advanced Device Recognition API, you can enhance your network security, improve threat detection and response, and gain deeper insights into the devices within your network environment.
