"Needs Work"

December 13, 2011  |  By revcall

 |  Version: GFI LanGuard 10.1

Pros

Does a good job discovering computers on the network and identifying missing patches.

Cons

Routinely fails to update Adobe products. While it is possible to only scan certain issues (patch scan only) it tends to scan ALL vulnerabilities and stores the info in the database. That means those areas continue to show up until you delete the scans from the database manually.

Summary

I'm not sure this product saves any time or makes updating any easier. I have spent many hours emailing and on the phone with technical support ironing out issues and there are still problems.

"Freeware not so free"

September 10, 2009  |  By valarclan

 |  Version: GFI LANguard 9.0

Pros

It installs. The full version is real nice... this aint that.

Cons

Install still says 10 days free and only 5 IP's?
The designation should not be listed as Freeware.

Summary

Program is worth buying if you have the money.
But when declaring it is freeware and then suddenly have strings/restrictions...
This is shareware at best with a time limiter.

Or they need to recompile the program to list the unlimited nature of freeware.
And definitely make it freeware fully or restate what this is...

Updated on Sep 10, 2009

After installing and seeing.
This "IS NOT" freeware.
Pure and simple.

Updated on Sep 10, 2009

This is not Freeware, this is Trialware.

Updated on Sep 10, 2009

This is TRIAL WARE.
There is no open usability and it is LIMITED in time, a TRIAL time.

"Totally Rocks"

June 05, 2006  |  By gbh1935

 |  Version: GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner 7

Pros

Great for seeing what is on your network and the status of it. Find problem machines before they become a problem. My use of this product to deploy patches is limited, I mainly use it for the scanning, it if fills that need.

Cons

The scanning bogged down the network a little, but it was worth it.
