Reviews from Real Users

Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by Ivanti Patch for Windows users.

PeerSpot user Tom P., Group Chairman at Unixpac, says, “This is an extremely robust product. It now has almost 20 years of history. It is very easy to use, as well as extremely efficient and accurate. Most of our customers just set it and forget it. They install it, and it does all of the automatic patching, month after month.

A Sr. Administrator at a computer software company explains, “The most valuable features are device management and support for upgrading applications. If I want to upgrade a version of an application, for example, Google Chrome, then I can create a task and push a Google Chrome update.”

A Sr. System Admin at a manufacturing company says the solution is “Straightforward to install and the features are good.

Hussein M., Infrastructure Systems Engineer at a tech services company, says, “I have found the interface and ease of use valuable features. Additionally, it is very easy to patch VMs and other systems, such as Linux. We are able to do patches even without the internet manually.

    Good device management functionality, contributes to a streamlined patching process, but the reporting needs to be improved
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most valuable features are device management and support for upgrading applications."
    • "The reports have to show the compliance level of the patching, which Ivanti does not provide."

    What is our primary use case?

    This product has many use cases including device management, Windows patching, deploying applications, copying files to multiple systems, and USB blocking.

    How has it helped my organization?

    This product helps us to create a streamlined process and it is working as expected.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable features are device management and support for upgrading applications. If I want to upgrade a version of an application, for example, Google Chrome, then I can create a task and push a Google Chrome update.

    What needs improvement?

    The reporting is an area that can be improved, which is why we are looking for a replacement. The reports have to show the compliance level of the patching, which Ivanti does not provide.

    We need reports that are both good and presentable.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been working with Ivanti Patch for Windows for more than three years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    This is a stable product.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Ivanti scales according to the number of licenses. We have not had an issue scaling.

    We have more than 800 users who are supported by our IT team of approximately 10 people.

    How are customer service and support?

    Technical support is through the vendor and it is fine. We have not faced any issues with them.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is complex. If I want to send a report then it is very complex. The reports are not easy to understand and not presentable. There are many manual steps that are required.

    What about the implementation team?

    I was not with the company when Ivanti was deployed. It was done with help through the OEM.

    When a patch is released then we need to update it. Otherwise, there is no maintenance required.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We are looking for a product to replace Ivanti and are evaluating different solutions with similar functionality. Right now, I am in the process of evaluating ManageEngine to compare both of the products.

    What other advice do I have?

    My advice for anybody who is considering this product is that it is good enough for many situations but if you require a dashboard or reports to show your compliance level, then it is not there. In that case, you have to think about other options.

    I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    On-premises

    A good product with a complete set of features
    Pros and Cons
    • "The solution is a good product and I have heard that the interface is more friendly than that of Windows."
    • "I tried to be a partner of Ivanti and, from this vantage point, the quotes are, perhaps, a bit high."

    What is our primary use case?

    We mainly use the solution for patching Windows servers. 

    What is most valuable?

    The solution is a good product and I have heard that the interface is more friendly than that of Windows.

    What needs improvement?

    The pricing is a bit steep, although, as we can understand the features concerning the interface, it may be commensurate with the product's value. 

    The product is geared towards really large enterprises, such as those of our customers. We act as integrators, partners of Cisco, meaning we provide customer service. We are resellers, not end-users. We exclusively provide patches using the client's console. I tried to be a partner of Ivanti and, from this vantage point, the quotes are, perhaps, a bit high.

    I believe Windows to be free, included in the server license. Regarding the price, I would consider the product to be very good. I see no issues with it and consider it to be excellent. Its features are very complete. 

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using Ivanti Patch for Windows for around two years. 

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    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. 

    What other advice do I have?

    I rate Ivanti Patch for Windows as an eight out of ten.
