Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution is very dynamic. I can do what I need to do with it.""Its dashboards are valuable. It is easy to access dashboards and implement policies."

"The ability to send an iPad out to someone and have them auto-provision it when they are out in the field is fantastic. We don't have to have it all configured before we ship it. This is probably the biggest value add.""The most valuable features are mobile device management and security (which allows you to quarantine infected devices).""We've found the scalability to be very good.""MaaS can force people to lock their phones. Not everyone likes having a PIN and other security features on their phones, but this sets a requirement that you can't get your emails unless you have a PIN on your phone. That was a good feature, and we were able to easily increase the PIN from four digits to six digits. Overall, it was pretty user-friendly.""The solution is quite stable.""My customers value the ability to control all their devices from a central point in IBM MaaS360.""All features that we have deployed are useful. We do access office emails on our smartphones, and we have complete sync with Active Directory. Our calendar also gets synced in the MaaS360 application. We also ensure that the data from these official applications is not being misused by any of the employees. We have disabled cut, copy, paste, and all such features. It ensures that all the official data that our employees have on their smartphones is secure. Security is the paramount feature that we value in this product.""Using this solution has made things more convenient. Earlier, we had to depend a lot more on IT to find and resolve our issues."

"As a partner, we consider 42Gears to be a unified endpoint management (UEM) solution. So, we should be able to manage users with this particular solution. This is something that is currently not there. It is probably an area for improvement for 42Gears.""The dashboards could be improved."

More 42Gears SureMDM Cons →

"The look needs to be updated and it could be simpler to use.""Local technical support would be helpful.""User interface is basic and not very intuitive.""An area for improvement would be handshaking with Microsoft in terms of trying to get a DLP on Microsoft OS.""IBM MaaS360 can improve the information provided for DLP control. Some of our customers would benefit from this.""The reporting and alerting could be improved.""When we have MaaS360 installed on smartphones, it consumes the battery of the device at a much faster pace. This is one of the areas of improvement that I would like to highlight. We have also observed that in the contact list, a lot of duplication is happening. A single contact is duplicated three or four times, which also consumes more memory resources. If they can work on improving it for these aspects, it will have a more positive impact not only on the way the application is being consumed by the user but also on user satisfaction. A lot of new features are being deployed or rolled out by companies that are competitors of IBM MaaS360. IBM will have to ensure that all those features are on board so that we have a complete suite of features in the platform, rather than deploying multiple diverse solutions to cater to the requirements of our customers.""The user experience really isn't so good."

  • More 42Gears SureMDM Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Fees are monthly and it's approximately $8 per user."
  • "Price is something for which we are always under pressure. If we have to look at the MaaS deployment, the price definitely has to come down. This is clearly one of the areas that we will have to work on, not only as a provider to our customers but also as a consumer of this service."
  • "I feel the pricing to be very high."
  • "MaaS360 is priced at a balance. It is not as expensive as AirWatch or Jamf and is not a cheap solution like a few of the local products."
  • "The licensing structure is broken down into levels, each with different functionalities available. Depending on your license, there may be additional fees for extra features."
