GFI LANguard is an award-winning network and security scanner used by over 20,000 customers that allows you to scan your network and ports to detect, assess and rectify security vulnerabilities with minimal administrative effort. As an administrator, you have to deal separately with problems related to vulnerability issues, patch management and network auditing, at times using multiple products.
However, with GFI LANguard these three pillars of vulnerability management are addressed in one package, allowing you to have a complete picture of your network set-up and maintain a secure network state faster and more effectively.
GFI LANguard performs network scans using vulnerability check databases based on OVAL and SANS Top 20, providing over 15,000 vulnerability assessments when your network, including virtual environments, is scanned. GFI LANguard allows you to analyze your network security state and take action to secure the network before it is compromised.
When a network scan is complete, GFI LANguard’s patch management capabilities give you all the functionality and tools you need to effectively deploy and manage patches on all machines across different Microsoft operating systems and products in 38 languages. Apart from automatically downloading missing Microsoft security updates, you can also automatically deploy the missing Microsoft patches or service-packs throughout your network at the end of scheduled scans.
GFI LANguard’s network auditing function tells you all you need know about your network by retrieving hardware information on memory, processors, display adapters, storage devices, motherboard details, printers, and ports in use. Using baseline comparisons you can check whether any hardware was added/removed since last scan. GFI LANguard can also identify and report on unauthorized software installations and provide alerts or else automatically uninstall these unauthorized applications whenever they are detected on the network.
