It is used with Brother printer support.
BrYNSvc.exe is for the Brother Status Monitor of networked brother printers. In my case a WiFi printer. When I use my firewall to block this file I can’t see the status (online/offline and ink levels) of my WiFi printer. When the file is unblocked by my firewall the printer status shows as ready and not offline. I can also see the ink levels of the WiFi printer.

Appears to belong to a Brother printer
Brother printing monitor. Really boring that the first reaction is to call it something horrible. Better would be to say it may be a printer monitor - i.e., first look for it's purpose rather than a scare.
I also have a Brother Printer Connected only via WiFi My Printer Model is: MFC-J4410DW
Dangerous. It comes up in totally unrelated Internet stuff.
it checks for brother software updates. If I were to rootkit someone, I'd inject it there :P
