This article serves as an entry-level introduction to GFI LanGuard.
What Is LanGuard And What Does It Do?
GFI LanGuard is a patch management and network auditing solution that enables customers to easily manage and maintain endpoint protection across devices within the environment.
Keeping your network safe starts with being aware of all the elements that make it up. GFI LanGuard delivers this visibility, lets you assess where there may be potential vulnerabilities, and gives you the means to patch them. GFI LanGuard offers these powerful capabilities in an easy-to-use and easy-to-deploy application.
- See your network and where threats get in—Automatically discover all the elements of your network: computers, laptops, mobile phones, tablets, printers, servers, virtual machines, routers, and switches.
- Patch the holes that make you vulnerable—GFI LanGuard lets you deploy patches centrally and
automatically, or by deploying agents on machines so they do it and save server processing.
Don’t depend on individuals to keep your perimeter patched. Control which patches you install
and roll-back patches if you find problems. Install more than just security patches: many patches
fix bugs to help applications run better.
- Report on compliance & vulnerability requirements—Compliance regulations have many
requirements to ensure financial, health, or other personal data is secure in networks and
systems. Get the automated, formatted reports auditors need to demonstrate compliance for the
multiple requirements in PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, PSN, and CoCo regulations.
- Find the gaps that threats exploit—Scan your network for missing patches. Over 5,000
patches are released every year; anyone may be the flaw hackers target. Find the gaps in
Microsoft, macOS, and Linux operating systems. Identify missing patches in web browsers and 3rd
party software such as Adobe, Java, and 60 more major vendors
