Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Clear visibility regarding the status of the endpoint."

More Ivanti Patch for Endpoints Pros →

"Patch management was very useful. Backdoor access to the clients was also very useful.""VSA installs an agent on every computer that allows users to create a help desk ticket with one click. That's why I chose VSA. Many users never create tickets when they have a problem. Sometimes I won't know about an issue until they run into me and say, "Hey, this has been broken for two months."""The most valuable features of this solution are automation, inventory, and patch management.""The solution was scalable.""The remote support is the most valuable aspect of the solution.""I like the remote control, audit, inventory, patch management, software management, and monitoring features.""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.""Kaseya VSA's best features are auditing and reporting."

"Inability to configure a rule-based management."

More Ivanti Patch for Endpoints Cons →

"It never functioned as intended.""If you compare with other products, Manage Engine has some features that we like but are not present in Kaseya.""The main difference would be the addition of audio transfer between the end-user and the remote connectivity software. That is the one critical piece that we are currently lacking.""We actually upgraded the solution due to the fact that we needed the support for Apple devices. We haven't had a chance to test that part of the product just yet, however, that was our biggest criticism of the product prior to this most recent update.""Kaseya VSA could be improved with more features to support the latest operating systems.""I believe we should include a VSA license to provide complete endpoint management.""There should be more Mac support. Whenever a new Mac operating system comes out, the support is very limited. It takes them a while to get things up to date. We're seeing more and more people move to Mac from the Windows environment for various reasons, but their support for Mac is very limited. A lot of it might have to do with Mac itself, but there are ways to improve upon that. That would be my biggest thing for improvement.""The deployment process could be better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "I think it costs more than ManageEngine."
  • "The dollar exchange rate in Brazil is very high, so the price should be better for our country."
  • "It depends on what products you want. Kaseya loves packages, and if you are packaging, it is more affordable. If you're not packaging, it tends to be a little bit more expensive than others."
  • "It is not expensive. Anyone can afford it. Most of the time, we get a discount for licenses. We had about 5,000 agents, and we received a discount on the price. There is only the licensing cost. If you use the on-prem version, you also have the infrastructure cost."
  • "With the on-prem, you buy the agent license. That's a one-time fee, and it varies depending on how many you have. You also pay annual maintenance on the number that you have. So, there are two fees involved: a one-time fee and a recurring fee."
  • "We pay a monthly fee, but it's a three-year contract divided by 36. They don't offer a true SaaS plan where you can add licenses monthly as you go. The cost is $7 per person per month, and we are paying about $1,700 a month."
  • "We were looking at a price of $22.50 cents per user."
  • "Without the managed antivirus, it was about $2,000 a month for the team. It's quite reasonable in that sense. The industry standard is anywhere from $0.90 to $1.10 per endpoint for antivirus, depending on how many you have, so it was fairly priced."

    Top Answer:When compared to what we were previously using, one of the most appealing features is that it combines remote control, patch management, and software management into a single portal.
    Top Answer:We do a yearly license with them. The cost appears to be determined by the number of computers on which the endpoints are placed. We were looking at a price of $22.50 cents per user. That works out to… more »
    Top Answer:One aspect we did lose when we moved from NetOp to VSA, is the ability to transfer sounds. In the past, if we connected to your machine and you were watching a video, we could hear exactly what was… more »
