What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that I am able to patch third-party solutions. The visibility that it gives me is not just on the endpoints, but also on mobile devices.

What needs improvement?

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. In the next release, I would like to see more support for pushing custom software.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I was using ManageEngine prior to GFI LanGuard, but we switched because it gave us much more visibility and control. ManageEngine had a limitation where it would only support Microsoft Update.

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… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) but we found that it had almost the same limitations as ManageEngine in that it could not patch third-party applications.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is centralized management. It is very easy to use. It requires only a few clicks to download the latest patches and forward them to the endpoints. This… more»

What needs improvement?

There are limitations to this solution when we are working with iOS, Apple laptops or desktops such as the Mac and iMac. All of the features are working with Windows, so they should be working for Mac… more»

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

Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis, and the charge for support is extra.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to this solution, we used SCCM. We switched because it is very limited to Windows, and for Windows users. Because we also have Mac computers on-site, we need a solution that handles these also.

What other advice do I have?

For anybody researching this type of solution, if you need one product for Windows, Mac, and Linux, then this is the best choice. This solution is very easy to use, and very easy to do the patching… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Ivanti SCCM before choosing this solution.

What is most valuable?

The solution's most valuable features are PerfStack, AppStack and AppInsight.

How has it helped my organization?

We monitor the main controller. When we change around one of the main controllers from primary to secondary, with some end application monitor modules, we fix the change with the entity server. That provides us with a bit of time-saving.

What needs improvement?

The solution should implement something like a network configuration manager, or some baseline for server configuration. Many of my customers need a recommendation for server configuration. Implementing that as a feature would be perfect… more»

What other advice do I have?

It's a good solution. If you work with Microsoft SCOM, or are considering it, you should look at SolarWinds instead. It's a perfect product. I would rate the solution ten out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before choosing this solution.
