Automatically detect security vulnerabilities on your network

GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner (N.S.S.) checks your network for all potential methods that a hacker might use to attack your network. By analyzing the operating system and the applications running on your network, GFI LANguard N.S.S. identifies possible security holes. In other words, it plays the devil’s advocate and alerts you to weaknesses before a hacker can find them, enabling you to deal with these issues before a hacker can exploit them.

Provides in-depth information about all machines/devices

GFI LANguard N.S.S. scans your entire network, IP by IP, and provides information such as service pack level of the machine, missing security patches, open shares, open ports, services/applications active on the computer, key registry entries, weak passwords, users and groups, and more. Scan results are outputted to an HTML report, which can be customized/queried, enabling you to proactively secure your network – for example, by shutting down unnecessary ports, closing shares, installing service packs and hotfixes, etc.

Patch management

GFI LANguard N.S.S. is a complete patch management solution. After it has scanned your network and determined missing patches and service packs – both in the operating system (OS) and in the applications – you can use GFI LANguard N.S.S. to deploy those service packs and patches network-wide.
