Pros
"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.""I like that the solution can block users from unnecessarily putting devices on the network.""The most useful features of GFI LanGuard are vulnerability assessment and patching solutions.""The most valuable feature of GFI LanGuard is its email spam feature.""The most valuable features in GFI LanGuard are patch management and vulnerability assessment.""The initial setup was easy.""The solution is easy to use and integrates well with other operating systems.""The most valuable feature is that I am able to patch third-party solutions."

More GFI LanGuard Cons →

"The tool's support needs improvement.""I find the user interface a little bit intimidating and not very appealing.""The cloud version should have option to add all the endpoints using the agent. Not only for Windows, but also the Linux version. There are some versions which are not compatible with SaaS Manager. So some customers do not want to use the latest version of Linux latest version of CentOS. Actually, CentOS is not available. But some are using and patch manager is compatible for some versions only, not older older versions. So there are some pros and cons that are referred to patch management.""The only area for improvement in ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus, which I noticed, is the reporting.""The solution's initial setup is not straightforward, and we have to customize it with our relevant features.""The agent can be a bit more intelligent.""The solution's UI is an area that requires improvement.""ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus needs to improve speed."
