Pricing and Cost Advice
"We are on the premium licensing, which is the one that has the API capability that we use.""There are no additional costs in addition to the extended licensing fees with Automox. You get your support and your per endpoint license with what you purchased.""For all these software tools, it is usually a subscription model. There is a monthly charge that we need to pass along to our clients because we are doing all this for their benefit. It is only a couple of bucks a month per computer, and that is a low enough price point where our clients, without exception, have accepted it, and said, "This is great. We will pay that. It sounds like a worthwhile thing."""The pricing and licensing costs have been great for us... My advice to others who are evaluating or thinking of implementing Automox is to give it a shot. If a free trial is still available, definitely use it, because it makes life a lot easier.""The product is a great value.""Automox just charges us a set amount per user, per month, for using the product. That is very important to us. Because it's a cloud-native solution, you're saving on the cost of hosting an on-premises solution on your servers.""We're doing it annually directly through Automox. It is per endpoint. It is $2 and some change per endpoint, but I believe the cost is right around $28,000. Everything is covered in this fee."

Overview

Facing growing threats and a rapidly expanding attack surface, understaffed and alert-fatigued organizations need more efficient ways to eliminate their exposure to vulnerabilities. Automox is a modern cyber hygiene platform that closes the aperture of attack by more than 80% with just half the effort of traditional solutions.

Cloud-based and globally available, Automox enforces OS & third-party patch management, security configurations, and custom scripting across Windows, Mac, and Linux from a single intuitive console. IT and SecOps can quickly gain control and share visibility of on-prem, remote and virtual endpoints without the need to deploy costly infrastructure.

Automox dramatically reduces corporate risk while raising operational efficiency to deliver best-in-class security outcomes, faster and with fewer resources.

Symantec Patch Management Solution can assist organizations in meeting their security needs by automating the detection and facilitating the remediation of security vulnerabilities for multiple operating systems (Windows, Mac, Red Hat, CentOS and SUSE) and for Microsoft applications and over 50 third-party Windows applications (Adobe, Java Runtime, common browsers and plug-ins, etc.). Patch Management Solution provides visibility into newly released software updates and the means to identify computers susceptible to the vulnerabilities addressed by such updates. It also automates the download of software update packages from vendor sites and the distribution of those packages to computers which require those patches.
