Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is easy to use and integrates well with other operating systems.""It is helpful to patch and scan vulnerabilities.""The most valuable features in GFI LanGuard are patch management and vulnerability assessment.""The most valuable features of GFI LanGuard are the vulnerability assessment, it provides us with substantial insight into what applications are running on the endpoint systems and what vulnerabilities are there in the running applications. The second would be the assets tracking. I'm able to see in the network whether my endpoint server is operating and if all the other IT equipment is running in the environment. Additionally, GFI LanGuard is not heavy on system resources. It gives a competitive advantage over others.""The initial setup was easy.""The most useful features of GFI LanGuard are vulnerability assessment and patching solutions.""The most valuable feature of GFI LanGuard is its email spam feature.""The most valuable feature is that I am able to patch third-party solutions."

"The most relevant feature is the monitoring, which provides built-in tools for sending commands.""The policies are probably the most valuable features. They're similar in function to Microsoft group policies where we can have it monitor certain things or push out software on a schedule. I would rate the policies eight out of 10. They're robust, I could monitor most of the things that Windows Performance Monitoring keeps tabs on.""NinjaOne has a feature where we can create custom scripts that we can run on devices remotely.""The tool's most valuable feature is third-party application updates.""NinjaOne's best feature is its monitoring.""It helps us to be able to have visibility into the overall performance of the servers, laptops, and desktops that we are managing currently.""The best feature of NinjaOne is the SLA system. Every IT person can check their performance, how long it takes to resolve an issue, and how many SLAs are breached.""The most valuable feature we have found currently is probably patch management."

Cons
"GFI LanGuard could improve the rollback feature. If we have installed the wrong we have had some issues with the rollback function. Additionally, more input from GFI LanGuard for the custom software push install.""If GFI LanGuard had a cloud version it would be better for people that are working from home.""When you want to uninstall software from an endpoint, sometimes it becomes very problematic.""The only drawback with GFI LanGuard is that you cannot directly integrate it from the Outlook email; instead, you have to first log in to the site to make changes.""The version we are using only allows one person to use it at a time and does not allow multi-users.""This solution is limited to the local area network only and cannot manage remote devices.""GFI LanGuard can improve by adding asset tracking.""The documentation on how to use this solution in a Linux environment is not clear, which is something that should be improved because it is complicated."

More GFI LanGuard Cons →

"NinjaOne's reporting module is cumbersome.""Lacks sufficient integrations with other PSAs.""It can have more integrations with third-party providers, such as Deep Instinct. They do partner with certain antivirus or remote access tool partners, but they can increase their portfolio to have more choices.""NinjaOne's dashboard could be easier to use.""The reporting is lackluster. NinjaOne is great for maintaining systems, but it's hard to use it to understand the state that systems are in without going in and mining the information myself. I rate the reporting two out of 10.""The NinjaOne distribution server is highly dependent on an active directory.""I wish that they integrated it with more antivirus solutions. Currently, they only push Defender, but it doesn't really have integration with SentinelOne. It also didn't integrate with Trend Micro, which we were using previously. I would also like to have more control from the mobile app. As of now, I am able to see some performance values, but I can't see, for example, disk activity or disk performance values. If they can improve their app a little bit, it would help greatly. They can also improve the tech interface. If I assign certain techs to a bunch of specific machines, they only get those alerts that they're assigned to.""NinjaOne's pricing and user interface needs improvement."
