Atera

For me, Atera has been a great tool that I added to my arsenal. I wanted something where I could manage my clients' Windows updates. As I used the software, I began to realize all of the various things Atera could do. Now it is a critical component of my business and I would not be able to properly function without it.

In my opinion this is the best software for managing and controlling changes in Active Directory. Besides that it comes default with lots of very handy built in reports and alerts. And if you need more, just create one yourself. Suitable for any size of company that leans on daily changes in Active Directory and want to maintain their security at a high level.

  • Logons - reports are very clean and concise and accurate
  • Account Lockouts - very challenging to do without ManageEngine ADAudit Plus. The tool allows us to easily locate the device or, at the very least, point us in the right direction!
  • AD change management - IT admins should consider this a necessity, and ManageEngine ADAudit Plus facilitates this seamlessly

Cons

Atera

  • Ticket automation, more options to specific cases or conditions, and change client assigned to ticket, or be able to assign a ticket for the client without hassle of emailing them back or having to create a fake contact.
  • Include notes for client that are not file attachments, maybe integration with a cloud service like Google Docs or OneDrive.
  • Integration with other remote access tools would be helpful.

  • It would be great to feed data from ADAudit Plus to ad manager and use that for changes
  • It would be great to have an sql like language to report against the data
  • It would be great to store the data 100% in the cloud

As of right now, we have found nothing that can offer as many features as Atera does along with the affordability. They are doing monthly releases each month and not just making small changes (shared scripting library, chocolatey support, Install packages, Splashtop SOS support, Scheduled tickets to name a few). The uptimes are great and accessibility to the dashboard has yet to be limited. We are a happy customer and bordering on fanboy status now

Support Rating

Atera

Atera support provides answers to my questions lightning fast. They have never left me feeling like I'm out there on my own. I can ask questions by email, or by chat, or by opening a ticket with them and they are always on it quickly. They also have a forum where other Atera users can help you if you need it, and you can also add feature requests via the forum.

The attention to cases or situations with the tool has been exceptional. being able to count on the manufacturer either by mail, call or chat. generate cases directly from the application allows you to have personalized support in order to solve problems that has been able to appear.

Alternatives Considered

Atera

We had tried Syncro, Naverisk, Pulseway - dollar for dollar stack for stack, Atera blew them out of the water. Atera is easy to use, easy to manage, has flourishing facebook and reddit groups for support and they update their knowledge bases daily. Their communication and support has been bar none.

Used and tested various other products before settling down with ADAudit Plus in the past, and never have the organization regretted its decision to go with this product over others. It's lightweight and fast and does what it needs to be without being an annoyance. Best of all, you can actually reach a live person for help when needed.

Return on Investment

Atera

  • The lack of cost per unit is a great asset. Our team consists of two members who really use the product, and the cost being per member means we can have hundreds of machines and still only pay for two users.
