Managing Agents

GFI LanGuard can be configured to deploy agents automatically on newly discovered machines or manually, on selected computers. Agents enable faster audits and drastically reduce network bandwidth utilization. When using Agents, audits are performed using the scan target's resource power. Once an audit is finished, the results are transferred to GFI LanGuard in an XMLAn open text standard used to define data formats. GFI LanGuard uses this standard to import or export scanned saved results and configuration. file.


GFI LanGuard Agents can be deployed only on machines running Microsoft Windows operating systems that meet a minimum set of system requirements. For more information refer to GFI LanGuard system requirements.
