Review of Ivanti
May 29 2020
What is most valuable?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… more »
What needs improvement?Customers sometimes ask about non-existent features, and we pass these requests on to Ivanti.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The price depends on which version is being licensed. For the one that works with SCCM, it is relatively inexpensive at $8 USD per node, yearly. The standalone product has two versions; the one that patches servers is about $45 USD annually… more »
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We have had experience with our clients using similar products like BigFix and the SolarWinds Patch Manager. We assisted them in switching to Ivanti because their previous solution was too cumbersome or too complicated. There have been… more »
What other advice do I have?This is a product that we have been selling for 16 years and I recommend it with no hesitation. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
Review of Tanium
Jul 26 2020
What is most valuable?I'm not so familiar with the tool but I like the interaction of the console to the picture. Patching is the primary model I have been focusing on for the last couple of weeks. So I have created a proof of concept environment and have been… more »
What needs improvement?Tanium comes with multiple models, so definitely the threat protection is the primary opportunity area my organization is looking for. It is going to be primarily used for event collection, which is being fed into our centralized tools for… more »
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?From a licensing perspective, it is a bit expensive if I do compare them with basic settings. It is nearly two or two and a half times more expensive.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Tanium has certain privileged features compared to BigFix. It has offline patching.
What other advice do I have?From a tool perspective, it is capable. I do not want to comment on how efficient it is because ultimately, I'm not aware of its capability. My opinion is that it is definitely a capable tool and it all depends on planning. It's about how… more »
Review of GFI
Jan 16 2020
What is most valuable?The most valuable feature is the vulnerability information pertaining to all of the components of the network. It is good for the information that we can collect from each workstation.
What needs improvement?The main improvement that the manufacturer should consider is to make it so this solution will not be limited to the local area network only. Currently, it is limited to only the LAN. If there was an… more »
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?I really don't know which products in the patch management category to compare LanGuard to directly, but generally, GFI LanGuard has very fair pricing compared to other similar solutions out there. It… more »
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?While we still use this product, we are currently considering switching to another product, so it really is the other way around. It is not that the product is bad. The main reason for considering… more »
What other advice do I have?I would recommend this product to people considering it as long as they were only going to be using it for a local area network only. In that case, it is a great solution at a great price. On a scale… more »
Which other solutions did I evaluate?I currently have experience with only this one patch management system, GFI LanGuard. I am considering switching to a new system, and I wanted to compare GFI LanGuard to IBM BigFix to be sure it will… more »
