Sorry for the newbie question, but I can't get a thorrow answer of what are the differences between agent and agentless installations (except for licensing/cost). Can anyone please explain what is the difference between agent and agentless installations?

    Agent installation - you install agent on client computer (for example, by pressing right mouse button on computer in Dashboard, Deploy Agent..., Deploy Agent button on this window)
    Plus: low LAN utilization, more detailed report. All computations are performed on user PC.
    Minus: Agent may heavy overloads user's computer for 5-10 minutes sometime
    Agentless installation - you add the computer in Dashboard but do not deploy the agent
    Plus: All computations are performed on Languard Console PC.
    Minus: high LAN utilization, poor report

      This may help to give you idea about the Agent vs Agent-less
      Scans in Agent-less mode use the resources of the machine where GFI LanGuard is installed and utilize more network bandwidth since auditing is done remotely. When you have a large network of scan targets, this mode can drastically decrease GFI LanGuard file is transferred over the network.
      Or see on this link:  under Agent & Agent-less deployment
