Pros
"The most valuable feature of GFI LanGuard is its email spam feature.""The most valuable features of GFI LanGuard are the vulnerability assessment, it provides us with substantial insight into what applications are running on the endpoint systems and what vulnerabilities are there in the running applications. The second would be the assets tracking. I'm able to see in the network whether my endpoint server is operating and if all the other IT equipment is running in the environment. Additionally, GFI LanGuard is not heavy on system resources. It gives a competitive advantage over others.""It is helpful to patch and scan vulnerabilities.""I like that the solution can block users from unnecessarily putting devices on the network.""The most valuable features in GFI LanGuard are patch management and vulnerability assessment.""The initial setup was easy.""The most valuable feature is that I am able to patch third-party solutions.""The most useful features of GFI LanGuard are vulnerability assessment and patching solutions."
