Agentless patching is the best of all the products I've used. The real-time updates that don't require re-scanning after each step is great.

Pros
Ivanti
  • Trusted ownership checking is a good way to implement effective basic protection.
  • Patching is important today to react quickly to security problems. With Security Controls, it's easier than ever before.
  • One console for whole security.

Skybox Security
  • Skybox manages compliance for firewalls better than we have seen with other tools.
  • Skybox integrates into standard change management tools so change control can flow through Skybox and assist with all decisions to implement a change.
  • The Skybox network map is more detailed than other management tools showing us paths other tools didn't find.

Cons
Ivanti
  • Performance of the console when using agentless machines.
  • The console layout is a bit cumbersome - would be better if all functions were accessible from one screen.
  • Common deployment examples to assist with deployment types.

Skybox Security
  • User experience. On the first approach, it's not the simplest tool that I have ever used.
  • Web-based console. In my honest opinion it's very important [to have] this type of functionality to extend the use of Skybox.
  • Too many updates of the product.

It is user friendly and quite easy to use. It centralizes all info in one portal and generates good reports to help you visualize and assess your change management decision

Support wasn't used as the cost didn't justify the expense. We have yet to use the support.

Skybox Security
The support team needs to be improved especially in their response and awareness about recent bugs in their solution. For example, sometimes they are not aware about how to integrate specific vendors like Microsoft Azure and they still don't have answers to it until now.

Alternatives Considered
Ivanti
Since we have been using Application Control for about 15 years, it is, of course, the best solution for us. We also looked at other products (RES One Workspace), but they didn't convince us. Some features of RES were good and are now part of the User Workspace Manager. The Microsoft solution seems too complicated to us and does not have the advantages of Trusted Ownership Checking.

Return on Investment
Ivanti
  • Reduced amount of operating hours for administration of patching.

Skybox Security
  • Overall ROI is good as this product is an augmentation for us but we already have a mature security program with an experienced security team so the ROI is high.
