We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 and the version that patches workstations is about half that price at $22 USD."
"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."
