Collects good information from each workstation pertaining to all of the components of the network

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case for us is for patch management.

Pros and Cons

  • "This product is a great solution at a great price as long as it is only going to be used for a local area network."
  • "This solution is limited to the local area network only and cannot manage remote devices."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product to people considering it as long as they were only going to be using it for a local area network only. In that case, it is a great solution at a great price. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate GFI LanGuard as an eight out of ten. The thing that I learned using this product is that you need to be very organized and fastidious in order to make the most of the tool and get the full clear picture of your network.

Improves network visibility and keeps our products up to date with the latest patches

What is our primary use case?

The primary function for GFI LanGuard is as a patch solution, which updates all of my software. My second use is to perform vulnerability scans to give me insight into my network, and how it is looking. I also use it to check on the open ports, as well as to have visibility in terms of what is running on every user's machine.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is that I am able to patch third-party solutions."
  • "The documentation on how to use this solution in a Linux environment is not clear, which is something that should be improved because it is complicated."

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution that I recommend. In fact, those without it are at a disadvantage when it comes to managing their network. The biggest lesson that I have learned is in terms of visibility. GFI LanGuard has given me a wakeup call in terms of what is happening on endpoint machines. However, it is more than just having visibility. It is about having control in terms of what you want to block and what you're able to block. It keeps our network stable in that there are no running applications that you don't even know you have. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
