SCreviewIn professional baseball, scouts rate position players on a five-tool system. Only the very best can do it all: hit for average, hit for power, and excel in baserunning, fielding and throwing. The Major Leagues are filled with athletes that shine in one or two of these areas, but all five?

It’s rare. Fortunate is the team that features a five-tool talent.

GFI LanGuard 2014 is the network security equivalent. It recently received a five-star product review from SC Magazine. The review notes that our solution, which provides total vulnerability management via one application, offers “solid reliability and a first-rate, up-to-date feature set. This solid performance is what we have come to depend on from this vendor and they did not disappoint.”

The five-star status GFI LanGuard received is actually based on ratings in six categories:

  • Features
  • Ease of use
  • Performance
  • Documentation
  • Support
  • Value for money

Earning a perfect score in each category, GFI LanGuard received a perfect overall rating of five stars. The review notes that:

“We found the application to be easy and intuitive to use right away. We noticed that not much has changed to the user interface from last year, which was pleasant because we felt instantly comfortable moving around in the application and running scans. We also found this product to include many reporting templates for easy compliance-based reporting. These included several compliance standards, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, PSN CoCo, SOX, and GLBA, among others. Beyond compliance and vulnerability assessment, this offering also features many inventory-based features, including change alerts, ensuring antivirus and security applications are current and active, and full software auditing.”

The latest version of GFI LanGuard isn’t without new features as well. The solution offers vulnerability assessment for mobile devices, and patch management for Linux and various third-party applications.

The most eye-catching aspect of SC Magazine’s “scouting” report comes in the form of four words about our product’s weaknesses:

“None that we found.”

Scouts spring into action when they see a five-tool player; he can make an extraordinary impact on an organization.
