    Tech support is horrendous - very slow response and email only
    Adding more licenses after the original purchase is not cost effective

    lots of man hours saved using this application to patch machines across the network

    Pros

    The software provides automated re-starts , patching of third party software and providing a list of users on the domain

    Cons

    reports are not the best, the next version should have the input for better reporting.
    It is suggested that this area be looked at.

    Pros

    The ability to do multi patching and updates simultaneously. I like the reporting feature where you are able to generate reports and send patches to the client without interrupting work.

    Cons

    The unnual renewal and maintenance cost. This may need to be reviewed as the ability to added users are sometimes limited by this.

    GFI Languard is used to patch Microsoft and other third party tools. The reports generated needs to be sorted in order to be used for reporting. This feature requires improvement, but overall the tool is worth the cost.

    Pros

    automatic patching of work stations

    Cons

    Reports need tweaking

    Languard is a great product to deploy patches throughout distributed environments. Easy interface, user friendly, nice reports, automation and scheduling of tasks, auto remediation, etc. It also serves as a scanner to check for vulnerabilities, not only software-related but miss-configurations and other things that can be mitigated. It can be used to scan everything.

    Pros

    non-stop ongoing patching and remediation, based on locations, settings. Relays can be set to distribute the load. One single pane of glass for all patch-related information. I heard new version is web based and has multiple administrators.

    Cons

    Currently one single console user at a time can use the system and will have to RDP into the server, so if you are running a task and another person logs on to the server, it will bring a duplicate session but will not work. The new version is supposed to fix this (hopefully).

    Also, need faster convergence on reports coming back from agents.
