Reviews from Real Users
Kaseya VSA is a solution that stands out when compared to many of its competitors. Some of its major advantages are that it’s easy to use, has a good Live Connect feature, and its unified portal.
A Team Lead at a tech services company explains what he finds most valuable about the solution: “The ease of access and ease of use was great. When Kaseya is deployed on the customer's computer, we have access to the customer. We just need the computer's name or ID, or sometimes, if the user has the same name as their first name, we can find them that way.”
"The most valuable piece of the puzzle for me is what they call Live Connect. It is the piece that allows you to support an end-user without having to take the keyboard and mouse,” says another Automation Team Lead at a tech services company.
PeerSpot reviewer Allan E., Director Of IT / Purchasing Manager at Macomb/St. Clair Workforce Development Board expresses, “One of the most appealing features is that it combines remote control, patch management, and software management into a single portal."
