Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"If the product works, remote access will be a benefit. To this point we have not had reason to have confidence in achieving that access.""The most important thing for me is the autopilot feature.""The dashboards, the security, and the customization capabilities work very well for us.""We have not experienced any bugs or glitches with this solution.""This product offers an alternative solution to other UEM (Unified Endpoint Management) solutions.""Maturity makes it a stable product.""The most valuable feature is the UEM capabilities.""The most valuable feature for us is the security, including risk analysis and patch management."

More Microsoft Intune Pros »

"We looked at Tenable, Qualys and Rapid7. We found Tenable was the best of all three.""Tenable Nessus streamlines the process of scanning for our organization.""I find the features that are most valuable are the policies that help us identify the vulnerabilities. These policies are then used for scanning instabilities and then identifying the particular vulnerabilities.""The solution is very stable.""The most valuable feature is the breadth of vulnerabilities that it finds. It's able to find across a lot of different platforms and operating systems. It's also able to combine local testing with network-based testing.""Nessus is good at finding out what nodes you have in place. It will then provide you a report, by node, of what the vulnerabilities are. It does it quickly and stealthfully.""It also has an executive report where you don't have to provide the client all the detail for them to sift though. But if they wish to dig through the detail they can.""Among the most valuable features are scanning for vulnerabilities and the reporting. The reporting templates are okay. I like that I can see all the hosts with different vulnerabilities."

Cons
"The difficulty of the the roll out is surprisingly difficult considering this product is supposed to be an integrated part of the 365 suite.""I would like to see the ability to deploy custom packages as a Windows 64-bit package, as opposed to the Windows 32-bit, which is the only one available now.""It would be helpful if there was proactive remediation.""There are items that require improvements. One is the controls from iOS.""The reporting needs to be a bit more interactive.""There is no catalog for mobile access management (MAM) security.""The configuration could be better by consolidating options and making it simpler.""There's quite a lot of development that they can do within their Intune dashboard. I think there are too many lines hyperlinked to move you around. Others, in contrast, give you a simple dashboard and an intuitive administrative walkthrough."

More Microsoft Intune Cons »

"From my point of view the solution basically is not for the big enterprise.""This is still a maturing product. Tenable is only a scanner for one ability, while other solutions like Rapid7 have more tools for verification. We still have to manually verify to see if the vulnerability is a false positive or not.""We have had some false positives in the past, which we hope can improve in the future.""I would like to see an improvement in the ranking of high, medium and low vulnerability.""There is room for improvement in finishing the transition to the cloud. We'd like to see them keep on improving the Tenable.io product, so that we can migrate to it entirely, instead of having to keep the Tenable.sc on-prem product.""One area with room for improvement is instead of there just being a PDF format for output, I'd like the option of an Excel spreadsheet, whereby I could better track remediation efforts and provide reporting off of that.""We use credentialed scans. They need more permissions and more changes or settings on Windows and Linux.""There is room, overall, for improvement in the way it groups the workstations and the way it detects, when the vulnerability is scanned. Even when we would run a new scan, if it was an already existing vulnerability, it wouldn't put a new date on it."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For Microsoft 365 E5 clients, cost is not an issue as this product is one of the benefits.""The price of Intune is included with the license for Office 365, so we don't have to pay anything extra for it.""The pricing for Microsoft Intune is reasonable. Our clients are satisfied.""The price of Intune is often included as part of a bundle with other Microsoft licenses, which makes it somewhat cheaper."

More Microsoft Intune Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is much more manageable versus other products.""The price of Tenable Nessus is much more competitive versus other solutions on the market.""I think the price is fairly affordable. It provides a license that is fair."
