Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I have found the interface and ease of use valuable features. Additionally, it is very easy to patch VMs and other systems, such a Linux. We are able to do patches even without the internet manually.""The solution is a good product and I have heard that the interface is more friendly than that of Windows.""Ivanti Patch's most valuable features are the patch module and the package distribution.""The most valuable features are device management and support for upgrading applications."

More Ivanti Patch for Windows Pros →

"The most valuable part of this solution is the security features that it offers.""This solution is our RMM tool and we love the deployment features.""The patch management and the remote support are very good, especially the remote support. There is a module built into the solution which allows remote control without necessarily interrupting the user. We could manage things in the background without them seeing or interacting with anything, which is a very useful feature.""I like the Live Connect module provided by Kaseya. It is a powerful module. I also like the Agent Procedure module. We work with it most of the time.""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.""I like the remote control, audit, inventory, patch management, software management, and monitoring features.""The remote support is the most valuable aspect of the solution.""The ease of access and ease of use was great."

Cons
"The reports have to show the compliance level of the patching, which Ivanti does not provide.""Ivanti Patch could be improved with better integration with other cloud solutions.""I tried to be a partner of Ivanti and, from this vantage point, the quotes are, perhaps, a bit high.""There are times when there is an update that causes some issues. These issues should be sorted out before the release."

More Ivanti Patch for Windows Cons →

"It never functioned as intended.""The solution is hard to use at first until you understand how it works.""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.""If you compare with other products, Manage Engine has some features that we like but are not present in Kaseya.""I believe we should include a VSA license to provide complete endpoint management.""The response to bugs is slow and software improvement comes slowly too. The lack of response to our feature requests made it feel like they were going into a black hole. Additionally, when we encountered bugs or issues with the VSA, they were slow to respond to those too.""Kaseya VSA could be improved with more features to support the latest operating systems.""The UI could be streamlined. The menu has 18 options, but we only use three. It has a lot of redundant stuff. Software management, software deployment, patch management, etc., all do the same thing, but they're different programs and licenses."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The solution is affordable."
  • "While the price is a bit high, it may be equitable with the features one gets with the product, such as that involving the interface."
  • More Ivanti Patch for Windows Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "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."
  • "Licensing is available on a yearly basis and is priced per node."
