Cons

AWS CloudTrail

  • It could be more commercial
Paulo Henrique Orind | TrustRadius Reviewer

GFI LanGuard

  • It could be a bit of information overload which some things are shown can become noise. Maybe different levels of "security" for lack of a better term may be better where you have a summary vs detailed level when it comes to rating the vulnerability of the entire network.
  • I find I sometimes have issues with PCs on a different network accessed across a VPN where timeouts often occur with very large updates. This aspect can be improved.

GFI LanGuard 7.0
Based on 2 answers
I only tried to access there support once and it was a relatively pain-free process. They also have a lot of documentation available online which can be used to learn and tailor the software to suit your needs. It just takes time and effort to plan, execute and monitor going forward.

Alternatives Considered

AWS CloudTrail

The ease of building, implementing and searching AWS CloudTrail is second to none. The JSON file structure that included in CloudTrail in a log format is very useful. The logs will capture a lot of useful data from the API calls that can be used for crafting strong security policies if you choose to do so. This security policies can be implemented via Lambda or CloudWatch Events

WSUS was the other alternative I considered but I believe GFI takes updates, reporting, and functionality to a different level for an enterprise/medium-size business environment.

GFI LanGuard

  • Certainty. It allows you to know where on your network needs attention.
  • Peace of mind. As security professionals, we can only put the necessary things in place to prevent malicious persons from exploiting a network. The software allows you to know whether or not your risk of exploitation is high or low. and if high what to do with it.
