  1. Generate notification on location changes

    If you change the name, location, gps coordinates, you will not getting informed. Especially if multiple administrators managing a central LanGuard infrastructure and registering or changing locations, it would be great if this will be shown on the notifications tab as weel on the home screen.

  2. Remediation failures due to patch dependencies suggestion

    As I understand the default behavior LG will attempt to apply a patch even though the patch may have a dependency on another patch that is not yet applied. It would be really cool if LG could know this, and prevent the patch from being applied (which results in failure) until the dependency patch is applied. At this time, the patch just fails with an error like "program missing" or "different version" and to "verify the program to be upgraded exists on your computer". Alternately, a bold warning or at least the possibility of a dependency should be communicated as…

  3. Scheduled Reports Excel Output In One Sheet

    In scheduled reports when I set the output type to excel I have no custom settings for it and the output file includes tons of sheets for every page. I want them to be in one excel sheet. This can be set when I generate the report manually right now. Please add this setting also to the scheduled reports section.

  4. Attendant Service on Agents

    When an Agent installs it creates an Attendant Service using Log On As 'Local System', which causes some computers, for whatever reason, to make the agent not communicate until the service is changed to a Domain Admin account. I would like to have the option to set Log On As settings for the service before it's installed.

  5. Create an API for retrieving all available products, including versioning

    We wish to be able to list all available products (not of a specific asset).

    The only way there is now to retrieve this list, is by manually manipulating the lanss_11_patchmngmt.mdb GFI file.

    Create an API for retrieving all products and also be able to retrieve the full list and just the deltas (probably API should include versioning of the retrieved data).

  6. Add drag and drop of columns in the computer view at the central management

    The classical LanGuard console has a great feature, to sort and group devices and create reports with the grouping. It would be great if this will added to the webinterface as well, because it will give a better overview of a large amount of devices/nodes.

  8. Organize Activity Monitor And/Or Dashboard

    I would like to have a way to Organize my Scheduled/Agent Scans in the Activity Monitor. When you have tons of agents that scan in one day it can be difficult to find a specific one i need to check on.

    I would like to see either a Filter or some drop down lists categorized by OU/Attribute in the activity monitor much like how it is on the Dashboard.

    Or

    On the dashboard you can see (depending on what you have selected) quite a bit of data, such as Security Sensors, Computer Details, and Scan Activity, the graph on the…

  11. Authenticate to SQL database with Active Directory credentials

    When utilizing an off-server SQL database, currently Languard 12 only allows the use of local SQL credentials or the currently logged in Windows account credentials.

    This is terrible practice. Any enterprise worth its salt utilizes Active Directory authentication for MSSQL databases, allowing the use of a Service Account for tasks like this. Utilizing individual SQL accounts like SA is effectively impossible to manage when you have dozens of SQL servers in a decent sized environment and a reasonable security policy.

    When installing GFI and choosing the back end, I should be able to select "SQL Server", then specify the server,…

  12. Custom Jobs Order of Install

    Please change the custom jobs deployment to install custom software in the order that each package is listed. For instance, when installing some software, I need to run multiple .msi or .exe files, then at the end run a custom .cmd or .bat file to make registry key changes. Languard often decides to run the installs in a random order, and when the .cmd/.bat file runs before the install, it screws up the install. After all, how can it delete a registry key that hasn't been created yet? Languard claims the install was successful because all 4 parts of the…

  13. Be able to deploy Windows updates to Windows Embedded Devices

    We have several HP Thin Clients with Windows 7/10 embedded. It would be great to be able to deploy Windows updates to these with LANGuard. Currently you can deploy them but only if the write filter is off, what I would love to see if the ability in the batch job to have it disable/enable the write filter or be able to commit the changes in the write filter after the updates are deployed. Examples of the TCs we use are the HP t620 and HP t630.

  14. Add Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 to supported Operating Systems

    Add Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 to supported Operating Systems. Currently there are massive issues with both OS. Mostly because of the RPC Service during Agent installation.

  15. LanGuard should check that the node which has been connected to is as expected

    On many occasions we see LanGuard connect to a host name which resolves to a DHCP address that has since been assigned to another machine.

    In this case, LanGuard installs patches and updates for the original machine onto the wrong box!! It should check the identify of the node using a GUID or at least validate the local hostname before installing.

  16. Add Federal Gov't (USGCB/FDCC) compliance checks to LanGuard

    Every federal government agency (and many contractors) must scan devices and check for compliance with the U.S. Government Configuration Baseline (USGCB), previously Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) & FISMA 800-53 compliance. The feature could be implemented as a report, similar to the checks for PCI compliance.

  17. Languard - Licensing change needed!

    Current licensing solution makes the otherwise good software LanGuard not suitable for use in especially larger companies.
    Because LanGuard automatically gives a licence to computers from active directory.
    Almost every company has old, not anymore used machines in Active Directory and won't put any effort and money in cleaning this up.
    So it happens that a company has for example 70 PCs in use and buy 100 LanGuard licences. Languard finds 170 PC in AD and gives licences to machines not in use anymore. So important machines like servers don't have a licence free for use, even the company bought…

  18. Advanced Scheduling in Languard for Patch Management

    I would like to see more advanced scheduling options for rolling out patching to test groups in stages / delayed timings, for example - rollout updates to a test group just after patch tuesday - then 2 weeks later the second group will get automatically approved

  19. LANguard should detect if Silverlight is installed

    LANguard should have logic to determine if Silverlight is installed on a machine before reporting that it is missing a Silverlight update after a "missing patches" scan. I scanned several machines that do not have Silverlight installed. GFI LANguard reported that these machines were missing Silverlight updates. This is a false positive. The security personnel running the scan operation should not have to validate which machines have Silverlight and which ones do not. Then the security personnel must manually check the box in LANguard to "ignore" this finding. GFI Tech Support said this is currently the only workaround. However, if…

  20. Change the hardcoded retention policy for incomplete and stopped scans.

    Please change the hardcoded retention policy that is deleting all incomplete and stopped scans after two days.

    It would be nice to be able to decide for my self if incomplete or stopped scan results are trash or not.

    I am experiencing often that I am losing alot of important data because of this policy.

    Please fix this so we are able to chose for our self :)

    Thanks
    Kent
