  1. 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…

  2. Support for Symantec Endpoint Protection 14

    When will Symantec Endpoint Protection 14 be added as Antivirus? It was released recently and LANguard doesn't recognize it as valite AV.

  3. Cancel remediation job

    Need the ability to cancel a job that is stuck in the downloading updates or with computers showing as "Pending" and not progressing. There is currently no way to cancel the job. And if for some reason it gets past it's hang up and finished the job, the remediation may complete and reboot servers (if that option is selected) during production hours.

  4. 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.

  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. 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…

  7. Display which particular signature has flagged a vulnerability

    It’s too difficult to identify which particular signature of a vulnerability has triggered a detection – i.e. which file or registry key has been found.
    So when verifying what looks like a false positive it is very painful to work out why GFI thought there was an issue.

    It should be made clear exactly what files\reg keys\values e.t.c have flagged a vulnerability - and acknowledge these if necessary.

  8. 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"

  9. Display current Acknowledge / Ignore status for vulnerabilities.

    i.e. on the "Details " panel of each Vulnerability, above "Type" add "Ignored for Entire Network Forever" or "Acknowledged for this device until May 13, 2012" or blank if it is something which hasn't been dealt wit already. It is silly to have to look it up in the Rules Manager to make sure that I've handled it. Even better than this would be to color code each one in the Vulnerability List panel - uncolored for not dealt with; gray for Ignored, blue for Acknowledged. Give me an at-a-glance status for all vulnerabilities for each device.

  10. Agentless Scanning using Relay Agents

    Since Relay Agents are basically Console-less Languard Servers, and since a lot of people dislike dealing with and managing Agents regardless the Software Vendor not to mention they are probably Tech Supports #1 headache. I would like to see Relay Agents be able to Agentlessly scan their associated LAN, when done, report it back to the Main Languard Server. Possibly removing the need for so many Agents and Tech Supports Time Consumer.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Ability to deploy software that languard provides patches for.

    LanGuard currently supports patching of a number of software products by default (flash player, adobe reader etc..), however it does not currently give any option to install the underlying package.

    This means that I have to find and download the installation media and create a new custom package to push out, almost every time I do this LanGuard then pops up messages showing patches needed for that version, ie have Java V6, install V7 and then LanGuard prompts for the patches on V7.

    I think it would be quite useful to have the installers for the items LanGuard can patch…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  18. Mark Servers that Failed Last Scan

    In Dashboard view of servers, it would be very helpful to see some sort of icon/badge identifying which servers failed the last scan. Instead of just leaving the old list of patches from the last scan.

  20. Compliance Reports GDPR

    Introduce reports about the GDPR. For example, something like the compliance reports about ISO/IEC 27001 & 27002, but then for the GDPR. It would be nice to have this feature.
