I'm working for a company that is considering purchasing GFI Languard
PSC. I would like to hear experiences (positive and negative) from users
who have used this product.

Please contact me.

Clarke,
Although I liked the fancy interface, and the ability to link to
BugTraq or CERT when a vulnerability was detected, I don't think that
LanGuard lives up to even nmap (http://insecure.org/nmap/), due to
one simple reason: LanGuard produces false results. This is quite a
problem. As I was helping to secure a friend's server, LanGuard could
not be convinced that POP3 wasn't running on the server. It wasn't.
In the end, even though we had our shiny new LanGuard, we ended up
using trusty nmap. If you really want a GUI, you can always use
NmapFE (nmap Front End).

Hope that helps some,
