Through the IHC, GFI VIPRE Antivirus , is even easier to deploy, cost effective, and backed by a trusted industry leader.





Q:I already use WSUS, why would I need GFI LanGuard?

A:WSUS is a patch management tool that works only with Microsoft products and it is quite difficult to install and get running. It installs only on servers, requires Active Directory and IIS, has poor control over deployments and it is extremely hard to manage computers which are not part of the domain. On the other hand, GFI LANguard is easy to install on both servers and workstations, patches Microsoft and other software applications, and is a complete network security audit solution providing vulnerability assessment and network and software audit.

Q:How long will it take to scan “x” number of IPs, using LanGuard?

A:It depends on the size of the network and scan profile used, but on average around two minutes per IP.

Q:Why use GFI EndPointSecurity if I can block the drives using the computer BIOS?

A:Blocking through the BIOS is not practical and not everything can be properly blocked. With GFI EndPointSecurity, you do not need to waste any time accessing BIOS, changing settings and setting up password protection. Everything can be controlled remotely and transparently.

Q:What is the use of GFI EndPointSecurity if my organization requires that most users need access to devices?

A: Having an organization where users need access to devices essentially makes GFI EndPointSecurity even more crucial. Blocking use is only half the protection, so in your case, even though users have access, GFI EndPointSecurity enables you to log all operations performed by the users, generate reports, and keep an eye open for suspect behavior.

Q:Why do I need GFI EndPointSecurity if I can block access using the Active Directory Group Policy?

A:GFI EndPointSecurity provides a level of granularity that you will not get using Group Policy as well as various functions such as real time monitoring, more flexibility in applying permissions, and highly granular access. All these functions help keep your endpoints secure. GFI EndPointSecurity is easier to configure than Group Policy and can be used to protect computers not joined to a domain.

Q:I know I should be monitoring my events but I do not have the understanding and skills required to implement such a solution. What should I do?

A:GFI EventsManager comes with a wide-range of pre-set rules that allows the administrator, even with little knowledge of events management, to use the product effectively and out-of-the-box.

Q:How big is the database going to get?

A:You can collect events data from GFI EventsManager installations on multiple sites and locations across your network into a central database using the Database Operations functionality. This enables you to easily monitor thousands of workstations and servers across the network without impacting on bandwidth and storage use. It integrates and centralizes events collected/processed and allows you to backup/restore events on demand. Through database operations you can manage the size of the database – without the need for manual intervention – not only through centralization but by also being able to export events and back them up as needed.
