GFI Cloud Clearly Good

GFI is one of many third parties that are now moving on-premises wares to the cloud. In GFI's case, its network server monitoring software and Vipre security software now form what is known as GFI Cloud.

Redmond magazine's Brien Posey recently took a look at GFI Cloud and unlike Wayne and Garth, found it worthy.

The first claim Posey tested is that the software can be set and operational in minutes. Posey set up a trial through the Web and signed up through a wizard which asked for some identifying information then offered the selection of services, and then the download of the management agent began.

The ten-minute claim turned out to be accurate, although each additional machine could take a minute or two.

Bottom line is, the software works just like on-premise, just with a lot less fuss.
