With the recent directive issued by the US CISA to disconnect or power down SolarWinds Orion, it is important to note that simply powering down does not help in the continued protection of the networks, operating systems, and applications which run on these networks.  

GFI would like to extend an invitation to assist anyone affected by this directive to leverage GFI LanGuard to stay protected.  GFI LanGuard is free to use with full functionality for 30 days. This can keep you secure until you are back on your feet.  

GFI LanGuard allows you to scan, detect, assess and rectify security vulnerabilities in your network and connected devices. It provides a complete picture of your network and helps maintain security with minimal effort.

GFI LanGuard includes patch management, vulnerability scanning, network auditing, and network security insights to help keep your network safe and prevent endpoints from being exploited. It can help you in this current SolarWinds Orion situation.

How does GFI LanGuard compare to SolarWinds Orion Patch Management?

GFI LanGuard includes all the same core features and functionality as Orion and adds vulnerability scanning.

 

This means that not only will you scan the network for missing patches and be able to remediate them, but you can also view high-risk vulnerabilities across the entire network, network devices, and support all major appliances.

 

Can I use GFI LanGuard to scan for SolarWinds agents?

Yes, GFI LanGuard supports scanning for installed software, in addition to creating custom scanning profiles to fit the criteria you need. This can then be used to identify any machines in the network which satisfy the profiles.
