Pros: The software provides automated re-starts , patching of third party software and providing a list of users on the domain

Pros: The ability to do multi patching and updates simultaneously. I like the reporting feature where you are able to generate reports and send patches to the client without interrupting work.

Cons: The unnual renewal and maintenance cost. This may need to be reviewed as the ability to added users are sometimes limited by this.

Pros: automatic patching of work stations

Cons: Reports need tweaking

Overall: GFI Languard is used to patch Microsoft and other third party tools. The reports generated needs to be sorted in order to be used for reporting. This feature requires improvement, but overall the tool is worth the cost.

Languard is what we were needing for a long time..

Pros: non-stop ongoing patching and remediation, based on locations, settings. Relays can be set to distribute the load. One single pane of glass for all patch-related information. I heard new version is web based and has multiple administrators.

Cons: Currently one single console user at a time can use the system and will have to RDP into the server, so if you are running a task and another person logs on to the server, it will bring a duplicate session but will not work. The new version is supposed to fix this (hopefully).

Also, need faster convergence on reports coming back from agents.

Overall: Languard is a great product to deploy patches throughout distributed environments. Easy interface, user friendly, nice reports, automation and scheduling of tasks, auto remediation, etc. It also serves as a scanner to check for vulnerabilities, not only software-related but miss-configurations and other things that can be mitigated. It can be used to scan everything.

Recommendations to other buyers: We struggle with one type of custom report we could not make happen, so it is not so "custom" after all. Please add a way to put in as many options as possible to really create a custom report.
