One of the most important features in any network security monitoring and patch management application such as GFI’s LanGuard is the ability to automate tasks e.g automatic network scanning, email alerts etc. This allows IT Administrators, Network Engineers, IT Managers and other IT Department members, continue working on other important matters while they have their peace of mind that the security application is keeping things under control and will alert them instantly upon any changes detected within the network or even vulnerability status of the hosts monitored.
GFI LanGuard’s email alerting feature can be easily accessed either from the main Dashboard where usually the Alerting Options notification warning appears at the bottom of the screen:
