Virtual Security Consultant
To help you maintain a secure and compliant network, GFI LanGuard provides a
complete view of your network set-up and provides on-time risk analysis. GFI
LanGuard assists you in these key areas:
- Patch management
- Vulnerability assessment
- Network and software auditing
- Assets inventory
- Change management
- Risk analysis and compliance
Over 45,000 vulnerability assessments are carried out across your network, including
your virtual environment. GFI LanGuard’s checks your operating system, virtual
environments and installed applications using vulnerability check databases such as OVAL and SANS Top 20. It allows you to analyze the state of your network security, what the risks are, how exposed your network is and how to take action before it is compromised.
For additional security, GFI LanGuard allows you to create an assets inventory of every device on your network. All servers and workstations, virtual machines or IP-based hardware such as routers, printers, switches and so on are discovered and identified via a network scan. Asset inventories help you identify devices attached to your network that you were unaware of or had forgotten and these, unless properly patched and secure, could become entry points for hackers and malware.
Reduce total cost of ownership by centralizing vulnerability scanning, patch management and network auditing.
Tackles the risk of missing security patches by providing on-demand or fully automated
detection, downloading and deployment of missing patches – both for Microsoft
software and other applications. Patch management is a feature of utmost importance as missing security patches are one of the main reasons for network security breaches. GFI LanGuard helps you fix vulnerabilities before they are exploited and reduces the time required to patch machines on your network.
Network and Software Audits
GFI LanGuard provides a detailed analysis of what is happening on your network –
which applications or default configurations are posing a security risk. With GFI LanGuard, you get a complete picture of what applications are installed, the hardware on your network, the state of security applications (AV, anti-spam, firewalls, etc.), what ports are open, any existing shares and services running on your machines.
The best way to maintain a secure network over time is to know exactly what’s
happening on your network. Changes to configurations that could have security
implications, new applications that are installed, services that are started/stopped and so on, are all events that an administrator needs to know about. GFI LanGuard gives you a complete history of network changes that are relevant to the security of your network and sends notifications when these occur.
Helps your organization to gauge the effectiveness of your PCI DSS compliance program
while safeguarding your network.
