GFI OneGuard®

Powerful network security and resource management tools that deliver centralized control

GFI OneGuard® offers:
  • Business antivirus
  • Patch management
  • Asset tracking

GFI OneGuard is unique in providing all three, reducing your total cost of ownership of these essential tools for your business.


System security through protection and awareness is at the core of GFI OneGuard. That’s why we integrate Kaspersky Lab antivirus at the centre of our solution. Kaspersky Lab is one of the leading, and one of the most respected providers of antivirus solutions. The antivirus within GFI OneGuard delivers real-time protection for all your connected Windows devices. Install an agent on each machine and control everything from the console. It’s an elegant, yet powerful way to protect your network.

Patch management

Keeping up with software and OS patches on a busy network is a vital task of any IT admin. Yet with multiple operating systems, device types and requirements, how are you going to manage everything? GFI OneGuard can help. The patch management element of GFI OneGuard allows you to scan the network for all connected devices, check what software is installed, detect any missing patches, broadcast updates when and where you see fit.

Asset tracking

To effectively manage a network, you have to know what’s truly in it. That’s where asset tracking comes in. GFI OneGuard makes it easy to identify and track every connected device on your networks anywhere in the world. Perform network and software audits from the console and leave the system to manage everything. GFI OneGuard will seek out and assess every device it finds and report back on what and where it is, what software it is running, whether it has any vulnerabilities and dozens of other metrics.


Reporting is the one way you can make sense of masses of data. Whether you need to analyse resources, report on hardware or software, prepare a business case for upgrades or a multitude of other reasons, the reporting engine in GFI OneGuard can provide it. A wide variety of reports are available for use which have the necessary filters to customize to the data you wish to extract. Reports can be generated in PDF or Excel giving you all the flexibility that is required.


Lack of communication/alerting on system events, outages or downtime will be a thing of the past with GFI OneGuard’s messaging tool. Administrators can broadcast messages to all users, groups, departments or whoever they like within your network to let them know about downtime or alert to critical issues. The messaging component of GFI OneGuard is a small but very important element. While it may not pack the punch of antivirus, it is the one method to keep users and managers happy and up to date with what’s going on.

Licensing model

One of the major advantages of using GFI OneGuard vs. traditional point solutions is that as an administrator, you also gain from much simplified licensing procedure. Instead of having to deal with different vendors, with different billing/invoicing methods, and the financial/legal paperwork that ensues, you will be billed for the services used only once for the duration of your agreement. Just one invoice/bill per year for everything you need to keep the network in tip-top shape.

Remote Shutdown/Reboot

This sounds like quite a basic feature, but in reality, you will be surprised of how often this is needed. No need to call up the user… asking them to restart. Administrators have the ability to remotely force shutdown a machine, and GFI OneGuard takes care of alerting the users and giving them notice as well as a countdown when the action will be taken.

Can be installed... anywhere!

GFI OneGuard is not an on-premise only, or a cloud-only platform – it can be deployed any way you like it. It can live wherever you want it, in any way your infrastructure demands. No other solution in the market is as flexible as this.

Infinite possibilities

These core services are just the start of what GFI OneGuard platform will ultimately become. Other services on the product roadmap include device control, server and services monitoring, web filtering and event log management.The platform and all of its services will constantly evolve with new tools and services to help you manage your business networks efficiently and with minimal effort.
