GFI builds on its vulnerability assessment heritage with LANguard 9.0, a network vulnerability and patch management tool that can tell whether the system being scanned is physical or virtual and, with one click, can launch a remote desktop connection to scanned Microsoft Windows clients. The tool is crucial for network security consultants and a solid choice for SMBs, though larger enterprises will probably want to find something more scalable. Patch management comes through tight integration with Microsoft's Windows Software Update Services, a free tool used to deploy updates to various versions of Windows Server 2000 and Windows XP, and other Microsoft applications.
