New features in GFI LanGuard 2012 SR1
Released: December 4, 2012
Mac OS patching support
GFI LanGuard now automates patching on Apple Mac OS X computers as well as Windows computers, all from the same console.
Enhanced compliance reporting
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).

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.
Microsoft® non-security patches
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.
Device vulnerability checks
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.
Smartphone and tablet identification
When auditing your network, GFI LanGuard can now identify iPhones, Android smartphones
Latest platform support
Windows® 8 (beta version) is now supported – as usual GFI LanGuard is ahead of the curve
regarding support for the latest Microsoft platforms.
