Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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.""We've found the scalability to be very good.""Maas360 uses distribution groups to deploy apps, which makes it a bit easier than, for example, Intune.""Remote enablement feature and access to internal resources on the VPN.""The solution is quite stable.""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 solution is easy to implement."

"The Autopilot feature is fantastic. It is a Microsoft product, so it deals best with Microsoft operating systems, but it can integrate with iOS, Mac OS, Linux, and Android.""The biggest thing for us is enforcing logins only from devices that are managed by Intune.""I can reach devices or computers over the internet. I don't need to worry about the network connectivity between the offices. I can manage any device. That is the most important part.""If the product works, remote access will be a benefit. To this point we have not had reason to have confidence in achieving that access.""We already use a lot of Microsoft products in our company, and therefore, it made sense to also use this product.""The performance of Microsoft Intune is good.""For the price, the features included with Microsoft are appealing.""The mobile application management, MAM, is the most useful aspect of the solution."

Cons
"The user interface could definitely use some improvement.""The price could be lower.""Local technical support would be helpful.""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.""Zero day support is something they can work on. They can make it a little bit more user-friendly.""The look needs to be updated and it could be simpler to use.""We opted to go with Microsoft Intune because it just seemed to be a more mature and comprehensive enterprise solution, whereas IBM MaaS360 didn't seem to have the necessary breadth to manage all of our equipment. Along with laptops, I've had some BYODs. IBM MaaS360 just didn't seem as mature in our assessment."

More IBM MaaS360 Cons →

"Reporting could be improved. It needs to be more expensive and robust.""The configuration and pricing can be improved.""They could also make it easier to use because there are some other products that may be easier to use in terms of the look and feel of the dashboard.""Microsoft Intune could improve by being more user-friendly and having it geared toward device management. The graphic interface is not very good.""China blocks Google and Google Play Store, which makes installation challenging. Microsoft Intune is a company software, which has to be installed to the app portal or Microsoft Software Center.""It would be helpful if there was proactive remediation.""The solution could improve its flexibility.""There is no catalog for mobile access management (MAM) security."

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."

  • "For Microsoft 365 E5 clients, cost is not an issue as this product is one of the benefits."
  • "The price of Intune is included with the license for Office 365, so we don't have to pay anything extra for it."
  • "The pricing for Microsoft Intune is reasonable. Our clients are satisfied."
  • "The price of Intune is often included as part of a bundle with other Microsoft licenses, which makes it somewhat cheaper."
  • "Licensing depends on how you are providing support to your enterprise, whether it's device-based or user-based."
  • "We work with the subscription rather than a server license. I think it's economical this way because we don't have to have a server license for that, and I think that works in our favor."
  • "Pricing can be improved."
  • "The price could be better."
