Top 5
Fully cloud-based, supports multiple platforms, easy to set up, and the interface is intuitive

What is our primary use case?

We are a managed service provider and we use Automox to patch our clients' systems.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's super easy to use and we haven't found anything easier."
  • "The biggest area they need to fix, without a doubt, is the ability to copy and sync profiles and worklets between all of the organizations you manage, and the ability to have top-level user access control across all of the companies that you manage."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering Automox is to utilize the free trial. It really doesn't take long to do it. What you can do is just install the agents on a handful of machines, then you can just put it in discovery mode. From there, it would tell you exactly what patches are missing, and you'll see the difference between what Automox is finding and how many things are missed already. Generally, whenever we do that, you see that the previous patching method is not as good. Then you can start testing out the policies a bit more and actually getting them installed.

Improves network visibility and keeps our products up to date with the latest patches

What is our primary use case?

The primary function for GFI LanGuard is as a patch solution, which updates all of my software. My second use is to perform vulnerability scans to give me insight into my network, and how it is looking. I also use it to check on the open ports, as well as to have visibility in terms of what is running on every user's machine.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is that I am able to patch third-party solutions."
  • "The documentation on how to use this solution in a Linux environment is not clear, which is something that should be improved because it is complicated."

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution that I recommend. In fact, those without it are at a disadvantage when it comes to managing their network. The biggest lesson that I have learned is in terms of visibility. GFI LanGuard has given me a wakeup call in terms of what is happening on endpoint machines. However, it is more than just having visibility. It is about having control in terms of what you want to block and what you're able to block. It keeps our network stable in that there are no running applications that you don't even know you have. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support has been good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very easy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is…
