Cloud communications small- to medium-sized business (SMB) expert GFI Software is now making life just a little bit easier for those using the company’s esteemed GFI LanGuard, which allows them to identify, quantify and prioritize vulnerabilities as well as automate deployed security patches and service packs, by updating the solution with new vulnerability assessment and patch management capabilities.
Trends such as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) have escalated this year, and are expected to continue to do so moving into 2013; therefore, vulnerability assessment of all devices has become absolutely crucial for all SMBs
To maintain a secure network, GFI LanGuard performs patch management, vulnerability assessment and network auditing, specifically aimed at the unique problems faced by the SMB. Now boasting a deeper portfolio of compliance standards reporting tools, the solution better enables IT professionals to scan, detect, assess and correct potential security risks on their networks with minimal administrative effort.
Not only does it carry on more than 50,000 checks against operating systems, applications, and devices, but it also integrates with over 2,500 security applications.
Even more, GFI LanGuard perfectly assists IT administrators in generating dedicated reports for nine of the top regulatory compliance standards, including PCI (News - Alert)-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley), HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act).
Phil Bousfield, general manager, IT Infrastructure, at GFI explained in a statement, “We have seen a steadily rising demand for all of our products to support Mac systems. Business networks often have a mixture of devices and we have developed GFI LanGuard to address this and meet today's demands. The combination of Mac and PC patching as well as device audit and vulnerability assessment make GFI LanGuard the administrator's choice for maintaining the strength of a business network.”
