  1. Automate "Synchronize with Active Directory"

    Currently the "Synchronize with Active Directory" function has to be executed manually. As this is a very repetitive task being able to automatically schedule "Synchronize with Active Directory" would save time and effort.

  2. Use central management server as alternate update location out of the box

    Because the central management server is already based on a webserver, the ability to use the central management server also as an alternate update location for the instances would be great. This is possible, with a lot of manual effort.

    Provide this feature out of the box within the configuration would be a great enhancement in secure environments, where not all LanGuard instances have access to the internet.

    It can looks like:

    - Add a additonal option on the update.exe (Updater) to choose the central management server
    - At the management server add an additional configuration point to use it…

  3. Option to manually approve the automatic distribution of a major version

    Currently, if you've got the "disable automatic approval for major version upgrades" option turned on, the only way to then get a major version installed/rolled out, is to manually select it for one or more systems and trigger a remediation.

    I would be great, if those major versions would pop up in the "Manual Approval" list and could be declined or approved there.

  4. Enable TLS 1.2 support in LanGuard and Central Management Server

    Central Management Server requires TLS 1.0 to connect to the SQL server hosting its database. This is a massive security hole.

    This is the error in Windows on a server which has TLS 1.0 disabled.

    "An unknown connection request was received from a remote client application, but none of the cipher suites supported by the client application are supported by the server. The SSL connection request has failed."

  5. Feature: Dedicated Site network security overview

    The network security overview if generated for multiple sites, is good, but with a little bit more site based statistics and information on which site it would be a great enhancement e.g. Items I would like to see:

    - World map
    - Most vulnerable computer with site information beside the IP
    - Which site is more vulnerable (Computer vulnerability distribution based on sites)
    - Show split and consolidated diagrams for
    -- Security sensors with the sites where something was found (e.g. Software updates: 8/18 computers on 1 site)
    -- Network roles
    -- Computers by operating systems

  6. Configurable interval between instance and central management

    It's not fully transparent when the instance will push the information/results/settings to the central management server. It seems only if new scan results are available -> settings, last sync date, results will be pushed to the management server.

    A configurable interval or something like a heartbeat would be great, because if customer look at their instance (especially on evaluation) and see that 20 - 30 minutes nothing was sync, while they have done some changes e.g. on the location/GPS coordinates, it looks as the connection between the instance and the central management server is not working.

    A heartbeat, would give…

  7. Feature: Adding site information and add grouping possibilities

    If we use multiple sites I want to see the sites in the reports and would know in which site the device appears. Especially in larger organization, to reach out to the responsible teams, it's an essential information where the device/node or specific vulnerability appears.

  8. Feature: Share reports via e-mail or other services

    It's great to create consolidated/centralized reports through the WebUI. But it would be much greater that the on demand generated reports can be directly shared via E-Mail.

    At the moment you need to do the following:

    - Create a report
    - Click on Export and save it to disk
    - Because the browser will display the pdf directly, you need to click on save to disk again
    - Take the saved/downloaded report and put it in an email

    For such a simple process 4 - 5 steps are very much. In the classical console, you can directly click on email…

  9. Load Balance Relay Servers Assigned by Location

    Rather than forcing a sysadmin to manually assign relay agents to machines - which is the only way to meet the <=100 machine per server requirement - build a Relay Server load balancer into the main server.

    Example:

    Allow each machine to know that its location (NYC, for example) has more than one relay assigned to that location (NYCRELAY1 and NYCRELAY2 and NYCRELAY3, for example). Have each machine check in the list alphabetically from top to bottom, and each relay should only allow 100 connections. When they hit the max, have the workstation check the next server in the list,…

  10. Better scheduling based on Patch Tuesday

    It would be great if there were better options for scheduling scans/remediation, specifically based around Patch Tuesday. For example, we have a test group of workstations and servers. They get the first wave of patches and test them for a few days. Then we roll out patches to the rest of our enterprise. Unfortunately we can't schedule this to happen on the X day of every month because it varies slightly in certain months. This creates a lot of work and rescheduling. Possibly a solution would be the ability to use Patch Tuesday as an anchor point, then schedule subsequent…

  11. Need to have feature to create reports using sql queries

    OperatingSystem | Hostname IP | Status | BulletinID | DatePosted | Title | Severity | EndDateTime | logged on user

    Need to have report in above format which is currently unavailable.

    So our recommendation is to provide sql like GUI where user can select the choice of columns he wants to have in reports and generate reports of his choice, you can refer to the Landesk product where they provide queries for users to create different reports based on options they have in their database, and it is included in the GUI hence a person who does not know SQL…

  12. No real time deployment for patches as well as Software

    When patches are deployed or scanning is initiated, if the selected system goes out of network or not turned on the process fails, and administrator has to restart the task manually, it is a hectic and overload the administrator day to day activity, we wanted to have the intelligence on agent or server side, which automatically detect or agent automatically pull the task or policy created for it from server as an when the system is available for which the policy or task is deployed.

  13. Responsive WebUI is not working on mobile devices

    It seems there are a lot of issue with the webui on mobile devices like smartphones or tablets. Because it's responsive the navigation and overall look and feel will try to fit on the screen resolution, but there are some issue I'm encountered on multiple devices:

    - Nav bar is not working
    - Nav bar disappears as soon as in dashboard
    - Dashboard is not scaled correctly
    - Overlay for site information appears in normal size
    - Upper panel some glitches (Icon over icon...)
    - HTTP 404 failure messages

    A suggestion as well:

    - On the small screen resolution (especially…

  14. Custom software’s deployment scheduling issue

    We deploy lots of custom software using GFI languard, but we are unable to find the option where we can deploy the custom software in real time like GFI does it for Patching, we would like to have this feature included in the product

  15. Allow to add computers with FQDN

    This limitation is existing in the version before as well, however I recommend to allow adding new computers (Dashboard - Entire Network - Add more computers - Add computers manually) with the full FQDN, because especially in multi domain environments it's essential to use the fqdn instead of the netbios name. The limitation I think is coming that we only allow to add the Netbios name (15 characters).

  17. Scanning profile editor takes long time to load

    I know that this behaviour was already in former versions. But maybe we have some chance to increase the overall performance for the scanning profile editor.

  18. Add Some Roles in LanGuard

    Feature requirement: Add Some Roles in LanGuard
    Our customers have submitted some suggestion about adding some roles in LanGuard:
    Some multi-national enterprises have more than one system or network administrators.
    Some of them are in charge of vulnerability scanning and some are in chage of patch management.
    They have different roles for IT, eg: IT security Auditor, Client Service (Windows Workstations), Network Engineer (Network equipemnt), OS&DB Engineer (Windows Server and DB server) etc.
    But now the GFI LanGuard only has one role --global administrator. And it has full permissions.
    I think it will not meet the needs of large-scale companies…

    This is already possible.

    Different roles are available in the Central Management Server.

    Each Administrator needs to have his own LanGuard instance that he manages, applies and approves patches, reporting is pushed to the central server for a unified view.

  19. Add support for Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 4.0 Light Agent

    Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 4.0 Light Agent is currently not recognised as an anti-malware product.

  20. Feature: Show the license status on the overview tab

    It's nice that the Home - Top sites will give license information about every single site. But as soon as click on a site the license consumption will not be shown anymore.

    Add the license information to the dashboard - overview or/and add an additional column at the dashboard - computer tab which shows the nodes which consum a license and not.
