"The solution is easy to use and integrates well with other operating systems."
"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."
"The solution is a good product and I have heard that the interface is more friendly than that of Windows."
"The most valuable features are device management and support for upgrading applications."
"I have found the interface and ease of use valuable features. Additionally, it is very easy to patch VMs and other systems, such a Linux. We are able to do patches even without the internet manually."
"Ivanti Patch's most valuable features are the patch module and the package distribution."
"GFI LanGuard could improve the rollback feature. If we have installed the wrong we have had some issues with the rollback function. Additionally, more input from GFI LanGuard for the custom software push install."
"If GFI LanGuard had a cloud version it would be better for people that are working from home."
"There are times when there is an update that causes some issues. These issues should be sorted out before the release."
"I tried to be a partner of Ivanti and, from this vantage point, the quotes are, perhaps, a bit high."
"The reports have to show the compliance level of the patching, which Ivanti does not provide."
"Ivanti Patch could be improved with better integration with other cloud solutions."
