  1. Apple Mac OSX Agent Support

    Please create an agent for Apple Mac OSX. As at present we only have the option for network scans, so this create unnecessary network traffic and performance of scans are slow

  2. 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.

  3. It's time for a better configurable Linux Agent

    We need a better Linux monitoring agent with an editable .conf file to manually correct where/how checks are gathered for delivery to the dashboard.

    Unlike Windows servers, we have a lot of options out there. Instead of statically mapped checks, define the check in a config file that we can edit so simple checks like disk space can be pointed at /dev/sda1 or we can point NIC monitoring at the correct spot. This shouldn't be too difficult, but it's going to require Languard engineers to understand that Linux syadmin's are 10x more likey to want to "get under the hood"…

  4. Add ability to add SNMP V3 credentials for devices

    In a highly secure environment SNMP V3 is implemented with access credentials, Languard SNMP scanning has no means of logging on to retrieve SNMP information.

  5. Ability to audit changes made to the Languard Configuration

    This gives the ability to generate a report detailing the changes made for auditors to verify scan rules are not switched off.

  7. 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?

  8. 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).

  9. Set a "Timeframe" option under "Vulnerability Assessment options

    In our environment, we have a 2 week window of testing patches. This forces us to go through and deselect any patches that we know are in this timeframe when deploying patches to systems. If we were able to create a scanning profile that allowed us to detect all patches outside of a current date (the current options are Last Month, Last Year, and Older Than one Year) it would be much easier for us to just scan our entire network with this scan, and scan our test systems for all missing patches. This would keep us from having to…

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Change default path for agent

    It would be interesting to be able to change default path for agent installation when you deploy from the server.

  17. 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.

  18. Terminal Server Patching - Install Mode

    It would be great if GFI LanGuard had advanced options to put a Windows Terminal Server in "Install Mode" (change user /install), apply my patches, and then put the Terminal Server back in "Execute Mode" (change user /execute).

    I have a Terminal Server and need to deploy both Windows and Office patches. (May only be necessary for the Office patches). This would be handy.

    Thanks.

  19. Schedule deployment of Languard Agents.

    At the moment there is one option for deploying agents. Deploy. I would like to see a scheduler. The ability to schedule the push out of agents during non business hours. Also it would be nice to see a thread adjustment so it doesn't try to push them out 10 at a time, a sliding scale or at least a few options as to how many it can push out at the same time like it does with remediation.

  20. LanGuard HP UNIX support

    It would be a nice feature if the LanGuard supports the HP UNIX machines. In the financial sector a lot of companies use HP UNIX machines in the network.
    Also extending the remediation (Patch management, etc) to UNIX machines would be a good idea.

    Thanks in advance
