GFI LanGuard 2014 R2 continues to extend support for new devices, operating systems and enhances mobile devices scanning with support for cloud based platforms.
The top improvements for this new major release are:
Support for Office 365, Google Apps and Apple Profiles Manager: In addition to support for Microsoft Exchange servers introduced in previous version, in GFI LanGuard 2014 R2 customers can scan mobile devices that connect to Office 365, Google Apps and Apple Profiles Manager.
A network is as vulnerable as its weakest point and therefore network devices such are routers, printers and switches must not be neglected. To the Cisco and HP devices supported in previous versions, GFI LanGuard 2014 R2 adds support for vulnerability assessment of the devices from the following vendors: 3Com, Dell, SonicWALL, Juniper, NETGEAR, Nortel, Alcatel, IBM, Linksys and D-Link.
Support for Fedora: Starting with LanGuard 2014 R2, Fedora is 7th Linux distribution supported by LanGuard for automatic patch management.
We have added dedicated reports for a new regulation: Children's Internet Protection Act.
LanGuard 2014 R2 is now also available in Chinese Traditional and Simplified.

Based on data from the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), Apple iOS® is the operating system with the most security vulnerabilities in 2012, surpassing Windows® operating systems for the first time. Now, GFI LanGuard offers agent-less vulnerability assessment for all smartphones and tablets that connect to your Microsoft Exchange servers. Apple iOS, Google Android™ and Windows phones are supported.
LanGuard 2014 is now a perfect fit for mixed environments because it allows automation of patching from a single console for the entire network, including Windows, Mac OS X® and major Linux distributions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Ubuntu, Suse, CentOS and Debian.
Keeping all your systems fully patched is now much easier that it used to be. GFI LanGuard 2014 includes automatic patch management support for a significant number of new third-party applications covering: instant messaging (Pidgin), utilities (CBBurnerXP, ImgBurn, Notepad++, CCleaner), media (VLC, Audacity), documents (LibreOffice), imaging (IrfanView, Paint.Net), online storage/backup (Google Drive, Mozy, Box), FTP clients (WinSCP, Core FTP) and Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign).
Released: December 4, 2012
GFI LanGuard now automates patching on Apple Mac OS X computers as well as Windows computers, all from the same console.
GFI LanGuard includes dedicated reports for additional compliance standards (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Public Services Network - Code of Connection (PSN CoCo), Sarbanes–Oxley Act (SOX), Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLB/GLBA) as well as the Payment Card Industry Digital Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
Released: July 24, 2012
With relay agents, patching may be offloaded from the GFI LanGuard server to agents on machines designated as relays. These contain copies of the patches that were previously stored on the GFI LanGuard server. This is extremely effective in large networks and in multi-site networks where it is much faster to patch machines from a local relay agent than it would have been from a remote LanGuard server.
GFI LanGuard has long supported patches for Microsoft applications and operating systems, as well as for third-party applications. GFI LanGuard 2012 now also supports non-security patches for Microsoft operating systems and applications. (With third-party applications there has not traditionally been a distinction between the two types of patches, so we continue to support all patches for these applications). This means that there is no longer a need to run Microsoft WSUS to apply non-security patches. GFI LanGuard does it all.
GFI LanGuard can now detect vulnerabilities in the firmware of network devices such as printers, routers and switches, from popular manufacturers such as HP and Cisco. In total GFI LanGuard now checks for over 50,000 vulnerabilities on your network.
When auditing your network, GFI LanGuard can now identify iPhones, Android smartphones
Windows® 8 (beta version) is now supported – as usual GFI LanGuard is ahead of the curve
regarding support for the latest Microsoft platforms.
Hardware requirements depend on network size. Refer to table below for the minimum specifications according to your network size.
