  1. 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.

  2. Missing Patches Report - List All Computers

    I would like a way to be able to have a report that shows all of the PCs in a domain or grouping and have them listed on a Missing Patches Report, regardless of whether they are missing them or not. This way we could report on a group as a whole and forward that to department heads.

  3. No more NTLM authentication

    Some environments need the ability to shut off NTLM authentication. Kerberose or other authentication capabilities need to be available. Per GFI support: "Unfortunately there is no way or method to make languard not use NTLM. Languard was designed to use this and this can not be changed"

  5. Multiple Scans from Agent

    I would like the ability to set up multiple scans, at different intervals, with different remediation options from the Agent Status. With Windows updates being cumulative sometimes, a single scan during our outage window does not accomplish what we need.

    I would like to set the following schedule ALL from the agent (not by having to create staggered scheduled scans from Configuration -> Scheduled Scans)
    - A scan at 12:00PM on Saturday, with auto remediation, set to not reboot until 9:00PM on Saturday
    - A supplementary scan that kicks off at 9:30PM on Saturday, with auto remediation, which reboots immediately…

  6. No Desktop Shortcuts with patches

    By default set the command line parameters to not install any desktop shortcut icons when deploying a patch. For example, Quicktime, PDFCreator, etc. installs desktop icons for all users when a patch is deployed and standard users can't delete these shortcuts and it's quite frustrating for them.

  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. Relay Agent/Server to Install Local Agents

    To reduce Traffic/Bandwidth Consumption on slow networks. Instead of LanGuard Agents being installed from the main LanGuard Server consuming WAN Bandwidth.Allow installed Relay Agents to locally install\push normal LanGuard Agents to computers using it as a relay server since they are typically on the same LAN anyways.

  10. off-line computers not showing out of date

    Have the icons change to red if a tracked host has not communicated with the Languard server. As it is now if a host goes off line you have to check each host to see if it has not responded whereas if they were marked red after missing x number of scans you could tell quickly there was a problem.

  11. GFI Languard

    Hi

    Here is my improvement, if you could forward it on to the right people please:

    My improvement would be to put the most commonly logged in username next to the PC name. This would make it easier to identify which PC belongs to which user. I know when Languard scans a PC, it records have many times different users have logged in, so the data is available.

    At the moment the PCs on the left hand side look like this:

    PC01
    PC02
    PC03

    It would be good if it could look like this:

    PC01 - Fred Bloggs
    PC02 -…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. Agent install options

    LANguard agent has limitations that it always installs in certain paths and uses certain other paths to download the patches to. It would be nice if we can influence this (either in the interface, or in a accomanying MST/MSI-script).
    Installpath, downloadpath and temp-path is nice to influence in this case.

  16. GFI Languard - Group by IP

    Please provide the ability within the GFI Languard console to group by IP without using filters. The filters let you narrow down the machines but it will not let you apply settings based on IP. We need this for our setup and would benefit greatly from this simple feature which could be done in a small patch/hotfix.

  17. Software Removal from software tab

    I like the way that the dashboard > software tab displays all of the software packages on our machines, but there is nothing you can do from there. This would seem to me to be a perfect place to have an option to configure uninstallation of software. Instead (unless I'm not using the software correctly) I have to go into configuration, then to software inventory, find the software again and configure it from there.

  18. USB / hardware Devices - Provide more information

    Provide more details on USB/Hardware Devices:

    Specifically want information on the last time a device was connected, the first time a device was connected/drivers installed or at a minimum - the last write time of the registry entry for the USb Device.

    The setupapi.log on Windows XP systems does provide some of this information but it is very labour intensive to serach for very specific entries.

  19. Missing Security Updates: More Options for Update Timestamp

    I would like more options to search for Update Timestamp. Currently, you can only search for machines out of patches for last three months, last year, or older then one year. How about older then six months? Or better yet, a custom date search field?

  20. 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.
