Check out what customers have to say about GFI EventsManager.!
GFI LANguard S.E.L.M. (now GFI EventsManager) is working perfectly, sending only important information to our administrators instead of millions of low importance events collected in the logs. Before implementing GFI LANguard S.E.L.M., we had to spend many hours looking for critical information in logs. Now we only spend a few minutes for that!

We are using GFI LANguard S.E.L.M. (now GFI EventsManager)for part of our audit compliance. At first that's all it was meant for, but now thanks to GFI LANguard S.E.L.M. I have a better understanding of what's happening all over my network, and not just the audit issues. I would recommend this product to anyone who would like to have peace of mind about their Windows network.

I am pleased with GFI LANguard S.E.L.M.'s (now GFI EventsManager) monitoring capabilities and reporting. Needless to say, it has significantly reduced the amount of time it takes me to review the server event logs on a daily basis.

I am always impressed with GFI because of the speed to release products to the market that are cutting edge, the graphical interface that makes installing, configuring and using easy and the ease at which the products can be removed completely from a system without orphaned objects. My students have also all been impressed with GFI products. Keep up the great work!
I am a corporate trainer delivering in several different situations, college and business, and need numerous 'tools' to illustrate good security practices to my students and to give them insight into what is available on the market. When delivering security related products, I like to demonstrate GFI LANguard S.E.L.M. (now GFI EventsManager)

The Age (May 2004) reported that a prestigious Australian private school purchased GFI software to secure its systems. Canberra's Marist College had to reinforce its computer systems to stop hundreds of its own students hacking into the system. At one stage the school recorded up to 200 virus attacks within an hour. One such security breach made the school rethink its entire security set-up. The school needed to know at once if someone might be accidentally introducing a virus, not a long time after, when the virus would have already done the damage. Marist College decided to use GFI software to improve the system so such breaches would not occur again. The products used include: GFI LANguard Security Event Log Monitor, (now GFI EventsManager) GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner, GFI Network Server Monitor, and GFI MailEssentials. As a result, the school can now monitor who is doing what on the system, and can immediately contact them about it.
With GFI LANguard S.E.L.M., (now GFI EventsManager) for the first time the Windows administrator can perform detailed analysis of Windows security event logs, as well as gaining an instant appreciation of the severity of events thanks to GFI LANguard's highly detailed and understandable event descriptions coupled with its real-time alerts.

As a Windows 2000 security consultant and writer I have spent countless hours researching the audit facility and security log in Windows 2000 and Windows NT. In fact I've written over a dozen articles on the subject of the Windows NT/200 security log. Given the cryptic nature of the security log, idiosyncrasies in Windows NT/2000 auditing, how security events are scattered among all the computers in the domain and Windows NT/2000's lack of monitoring, reporting and management tools for the security log - I've often compared the security log to low grade ore. The gold is in there but it takes tremendous effort to extract it from the surrounding track. After working with GFI LANguard S.E.L.M., (now GFI EventsManager) I am impressed with how it addresses these problems with a simple but effective architecture. S.E.L.M. is the refinery that extracts the gold from Windows NT/2000 security log.
GFI LANguard S.E.L.M. (now GFI EventsManager) provides administrators an easy way to take advantage of the wealth of information captured by Windows NT/2000's audit facility without having to manually check the security of each computer in the network. GFI LANguard S.E.L.M. strikes an efficient balance between conserving system resources and keeping you up-to-date with suspicious events throughout your network. GFI LANguard S.E.L.M.'s real time alerts not only inform you of critical security events but also coaches you through responding to the event and how to interpret that event in connection with other related events to see the big picture. This is critical since a single Window NT/2000 security event is often only part of the story. I am highly impressed with GFI LANguard S.E.L.M.'s flexible Event Viewer, which has become my standard research tool for the security log. GFI LANguard S.E.L.M.'s Event Viewer is the event viewer that Microsoft should have written in the first place.
I congratulate you on your efforts in this important area of Windows NT/2000 security.
