ManageEngine Desktop Central Review

Patch management is now a more streamlined and automated process with the use of deployment schedules.

Valuable Features:

  • Patch Management
  • Software Licensing
  • Asset Management
  • Reporting
  • Mobile Device Management
  • Remote Control

Improvements to My Organization:

Patch management was being done manually and as a result many workstations and servers were lacking current critical/important security updates and OS fixes. With the implementation of Desktop Central's patch management functionality, it is now a more streamlined and automated process with the use of deployment schedules aligned with Patch Tuesday from Microsoft. In three months over 1000 critical/important updates were applied to over 1500 workstations/servers using this tool.

Room for Improvement:

It would be helpful to add image management to this tool.

Deployment Issues:

We had no issues deploying it.

Stability Issues:

There have been no instability issues.

Scalability Issues:

It's scaled just fine.

Other Advice:

Don't use it with Internet Explorer, as it's glitchy. Chrome or FireFox work best.
