Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The training that we received was quite good.""The patching is very efficient and we can rely on the alerts that we receive.""I like the remote control, audit, inventory, patch management, software management, and monitoring features.""The most valuable part of this solution is the security features that it offers.""Patch management was very useful. Backdoor access to the clients was also very useful.""The remote support is the most valuable aspect of the solution."

Cons
"I have been looking for a way to deploy patches via the internet to selected equipment from Kaseya VSA, but it seems impossible.""The predefined reports are not up to the mark and you have to do a lot of customization.""The agent-based monitoring solution can be improved.""If you compare with other products, Manage Engine has some features that we like but are not present in Kaseya.""Its scripting language kind of sucked. They have their own version of PowerShell inside VSA. if you want to reach out and grab endpoint information, for instance, to know how many end devices have a program installed, you actually have to write a script for that. It wasn't like how it is in CrowdStrike where you can just do a search, and it just happened. In VSA, you have to write your own script to do it. In terms of new features, an integrated MDM for mobile devices would be awesome.""We actually upgraded the solution due to the fact that we needed the support for Apple devices. We haven't had a chance to test that part of the product just yet, however, that was our biggest criticism of the product prior to this most recent update."

"The partnership models and subscriptions can be improved, as regional master resellers sometimes hog the space."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is quite good and we are satisfied with it.""I think it costs more than ManageEngine.""The dollar exchange rate in Brazil is very high, so the price should be better for our country.""It depends on what products you want. Kaseya loves packages, and if you are packaging, it is more affordable. If you're not packaging, it tends to be a little bit more expensive than others."
