I would like to request a feature upgrade to keep LanGuard as an option in the new Work From Home reality.

We are a midsize software consulting company and because of COVID-19 everyone works from home.
All our IT services (email, wiki, file sharing, etc) are cloud-based, our users don't connect to the office over VPN.
That prevents the communication of the agents with the GFI management server.

Because of some security and contractional obligations, we are forced to look into a replacement of GFI with a product that can have full cloud-based functionality.

However, we like all the features and would really love to renew our LanGuard.
If GFI provides a cloud-based management server it will be great.

Does anyone else think this makes sense?

Regards,

TJ

Hi

Yes we are working on this product. We would still use the LanGuard engine to scan and deploy patches but console would be closed based. Agents would communicate with the cloud via HTTPS so machine does not need to be within the network.

Hi, are some news about some beta or info about the new features for the cloud version of GFI Languard?

We'll have new features or maybe GFI will be launching a new product that could be used for actual users(clients of GFI Languard?

Thanks!

I am wondering the same. Due of Corona and home office we definitely need a cloud solution that is indipendent from dns and vpn.

Is there progress on this project?
It would be much appreciated if there's any news or statement from GFI Team to assure their clients with regards to this request.

GFI already had such a product but decided to kill it for some reason after Aurea takeover.

I believe you're talking about GFI OneGuard. GFI OneGuard combined the functionality of aspects of GFI EndPointSecurity and GFI LanGuard. Ultimately, there was never a lot of interest in GFI OneGuard and it only existed in an extended beta for about two years. We pulled the plug on it about two years ago due to lack of interest in the product.

LanGuard 12.6 has several enhancements planned for it. One of them does involve with updating the Agent scanning so it isn't as reliant on SMB and would work better over a VPN. This is what Ian mentioned earlier in the thread. We are also planning to include an update to the Agent that would allow it to work on Mac OS as well. This is all still subject to change. LanGuard 12.6 is currently planned to be released later this year.

The WFH concept is no longer on the road map?

We are still planning on adding this extra functionality. We plan to release LanGuard 12.6 soon, but the Remote Scanning enhancement is going to be pushed to 12.7.

LanGuard 12.6, we are aiming to release in the next 30 days. But it specifically is going to address issues we are seeing with the LanGuard 12.5 installer with the latest version of SQL. LanGuard 12.7 is still on the road map to be released this calendar year.

What does "Remote Scanning" entail? Unless GFI takes the WFH reality seriously and adds remote patching functionality VERY soon our org will have to look elsewhere. It's been a year and a half since Covid began and we've seen no news or activity to address this request.
