GFI LANguard NSS 8 Arrives

GFI Software announced the release of GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner 8

LONDON -- 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.
