GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner (N.S.S.) 8 Launched

Latest Release Integrates Next Generation Technology for Security Scanning, Patch Management and Network Auditing Within a Singl

LONDON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/28/07 -- GFI Software, an international developer of network security, content security and messaging software, announced today the release of GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner (N.S.S.) 8, the latest version of its award-winning solution that addresses the three pillars of vulnerability management: security scanning, patch management and network auditing in one integrated solution. GFI LANguard N.S.S. 8 is an essential, cost-effective solution for businesses to safeguard their systems and networks from hacker attacks and security breaches.

GFI LANguard N.S.S. 8 scans the entire network for over 15,000 vulnerabilities, identifies all possible security issues and provides administrators with the tools they need to detect, assess, report and remediate any threats before hackers do.

Having to deal with problems related to vulnerability issues, patch management and network auditing separately, at times using multiple products, is a major concern for administrators. Not only do they have to install, learn to use and manage multiple solutions but their time is mostly spent trying to understand where the problems are instead of actually addressing the threats that may be present. Using a single console with extensive reporting functionality, GFI LANguard N.S.S.'s integrated solution helps administrators address these issues faster and more effectively.

What's new in GFI LANguard N.S.S. 8?

The latest version of GFI LANguard N.S.S. has over 2,000 new vulnerability checks -- using SANS top 20 and Open Vulnerabilities Assessment Language (OVAL) security definitions -- over and above the vulnerabilities which are discovered through its inbuilt vulnerability assessment functionality.

OVAL is an international information security community standard that is backed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and this is the first time that this technology is being made available to small and medium businesses (SMBs) as OVAL is mainly offered in enterprise level solutions.

The latest version of GFI LANguard N.S.S. responds to a number of specific customer requests over the past year, according to Andre Muscat, Director, Network Security Products, GFI. "We listened to feedback and are thrilled to present an updated product that will undoubtedly be well-received by our customers," said Andre. "Together with the technology advancements implemented such as support for OVAL and the SANS top 20, this latest version combines years of user experience and vulnerability management technology into one modestly priced solution."

Apart from more extensive vulnerability scanning capabilities, GFI LANguard N.S.S. also has a performance enhanced scanning engine, additional patch management functionality and a highly intuitive graphical threat level indicator. The latest version has received a variety of patch management improvements including added support to rollback Microsoft patches as well as technology to automatically download new Microsoft security patches when made available. It also supports scanning for vulnerabilities on Windows Vista-based systems.

As part of the launch, GFI LANguard N.S.S. 8 also includes a ReportPack add-on with over 30 customizable reports, which automatically generate graphical IT and management-level reports based on data collected during security scans.
