This article provides an answer to one of the recent common questions in work from home (WFH) reality - whether there is a cloud-based interface to access the GFI LanGuard through the web.
GFI LanGuard operates in different environments yet all of them are currently on-premise. Because of COVID-19 more and more companies move to the work from home model and are asking for the cloud-based LanGuard management server.
The cloud-based management server is not a feature currently available in GFI LanGuard but it is a project being worked on already by our product team. We would still use the LanGuard engine to scan and deploy patches but console would be closed based. Agents would communicate with the cloud via HTTPS so the machine does not need to be within the network.
You can join the conversation and add any thoughts on the Align LanGuard with new WFH reality forum thread.
