  1. make a linux version of languard

    not just languard but more of your tools running on Linux would be a great benefit to Linux heavy environments.

  2. Add Intel Management Engine to list of supported third party applications

    Add Intel Management Engine to list of supported third party applications. The above software is installed on a large majority of devices that use an Intel chipset, this software is regually updated with no means of auto updating. It would be nice tobe able to push these updates out with Languard. Languard does detect the software but does not offer any updates.

  3. non-Windows machine scanned by relay agent

    Now relay agent can scan Windows machines. Please add non-Windows scanning feature.

    Since relay agent is Languard without GUI, I cant see why not scans non-Windows machines.

    Now relay agent can only be installed and used within internal network or VPN(still internal network).

    Customer who dont use VPN cant use relay agent.

  5. Make Agents compatible with Synology products

    I attempted to deploy an agent during my trial of LanGuard to my Synology NAS but sadly the software doesn't appear to be compatible. I'm surprised considering the popularity of these smaller devices for small business owners like myself. I use my NAS as an Email and DNS Server in addition to storage of business documents. If developing a patch for LanGurad is cost prohibitive, maybe a compromise for all parties would be to develop a LanGuard software 'Package' that can be deployed onto the NAS. Check out this link https://www.cphub.net/?id=6. Maybe the package can talk to LanGaurd from…

  6. Scheduled installation of Third Party Applications

    I would like to request the consideration of adding the ability to install third party applications (Deploy Custom Software) via the agent. I have computers that are located all over the world and are located in various time zones. A lot of the time, they are powered off while others are powered on. Being able to designate a package to be installed when the agent checks in with the server would be very valuable as I will never be able to have all my systems on at once for a new package rollout. This strategy works exceptionally well for patching…

  7. Postpone Scheduled Remediation Jobs

    I would like to see in a future feature release, the ability for us to Adhoc postpone a scheduled remediation job. This feature would be very beneficial in case we have numerous servers being patched. In our case we have hundreds. As it stands now, we would have to cancel the remediation job and forfeit and retry all of those servers, which is a huge headache when having to recreate the job.

  8. Display FQDN or IP on LanGuard managed system list and reports

    I would like for LanGuard to offer the option to display either the FQDN or IP address of managed systems on all screens and in reports. We manage multiple client email systems that are all named mail.clientname.edu. Since only the first part of the name is displayed in the managed systems list all we see are multiple listings for "mail"
    It also appears that some reports lump all results together by system name, so everything appears in one list for system "mail" instead of separating into distinct systems by IP or FQDN. I support the request to have reports list…

  9. Ability to turn off boot scan / only scan on next schedule

    I would like to be able to scan only on the next scheduled scan, and not have the machine scan on the next time it is booted if a scan Is missed. This would reduce load on the machine booting up. It would be an easy fix, I believe, but I've been wrong before. Thanks,

    A

  11. Option to Reboot by platform

    The company has many platforms (eg, Database and application servers) that is going in an order. Your application could have a button to make manual or automatic reboot. My job is to manage servers and the time window has to be approved by management.

    Thanks

  12. allow linux scanning with non root accounts

    Languard needs to have an option to connect to and scan linux machines with another account besides root. Most people do not allow root access to linux servers via SSH. That way we can have a dedicated account that will be used for scanning and patching linux servers without giving root access to the entire server.

  13. Show if PC is on or off

    Could you put a green or red little light next to the PC names to show whether the PC is turned on or off.
    Something like a quick ping test every 1-2mins (allow the user to change this) to check the status of the PC.

  14. Automatic exclusion of obsolete/superseded patches

    When selecting/approving a patch for installation, LanGuard should automatically disable patches that are no longer needed.
    E.g. if I select everything that's available for one machine which needs Service Pack 1 for Office 2013, LanGuard should not try to install patches that are included in/superseded by SP1 for Office 2013.

  15. Agent performance throttling

    LANguard agent should be capable of limiting certain 'counters' like CPU usage, memory usage and bandwidth usage per agent. In large environments and heavy used servers it is not always wanted to unwantedly share this much power to the agent. It finishes faster, but the drawback weighs heavier (some tell us 95% CPU and 500MB mem during a scan). In some cases the downloading of patches is also nicer if it could be limited.

  16. Software Audit - Option to Replace Old Software Versions

    I would like to see a optional setting that would replace older versions of a software when you do a full/software Audit.

    The setting would take older versions of a software for example Adobe Reader 9.5.1, uninstall it, and replace it with Adobe Reader 10.1.3.

  17. Option to reboot immediately if no one is logged on

    After patching or deploying custom software it is often necessary to reboot. However you obviously don't want to reboot immediately if a user is logged on but there's no reason not to reboot immediately if no one is logged on. It would be nice to add an option to the reboot menu to the effect of: Reboot immediately if no one is logged on else notify user and let them decide. Currently if I choose let user decide and no one happens to be logged into the computer it will wait until a user logs on and then tell them…

  18. Auto-Remediation Schedule

    Would love to be able to setup schedule and times when auto-remediation can take place. For instance, we like to scan nightly but only want auto-remediation to take place between certain hours on Sunday only.

  19. Software and licence keys inventory in GFI LANGuard

  20. Add Wake On LAN to Agent Scan

    I would like to be able to enable "wake up offline computers" for agent scans. Currently this is only an option with scheduled scans, which are much more network intensive. It shouldn't be too hard to have the LANguard server send out a WOL magic packet at the scheduled time for agent scans, what way we can reap the benefits of WOL and agent scans without having to resort to third party WOL software.
