KACE Asset Management Appliance

The KACE Management Appliance does many different things, but does not do them as well as other products. It is an all-in-one system for Asset tracking, software management, ticketing system, Contact management, and reporting. If you require basic functionality for these, then this product will meet your needs. But when you begin needing advanced/granular functions from the appliance, it will fall short.

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

The number one use we have for it is in our periodic security reviews - we routinely check the logs for any anomalies, and ADAudit Plus is the tool of choice for me and for my team to get the ball rolling. We can check the dashboards for any out of the ordinary events, dig deeper into the actual log behaviors of the machines and users we manage, and then report the findings into CSV or XLSX format for further analysis or presentation.

Cons

KACE Asset Management Appliance

  • Configuring automated software installs is difficult, and logs do not present useful information for troubleshooting.
  • Customer support will just refer you to search itninja.com when you call in for support issues.
  • KACE community site (itninja.com), has outdated documentation, and answers to questions are usually vague at best.
  • KACE Amp agent constantly breaks, and has to be re-installed on end user computers.
  • A parent-child relationship in the ticketing system requires you to create a process.
  • Remote provisioning fails consistently and does not provide any useful information as to why it failed.
  • K1000 is overpriced for the jobs it actually performs and the work that is required to maintain it.

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

  • The UI is a bit clunky.
  • Installing SSL/TLS certs is less than optimal.

Alternatives Considered

KACE Asset Management Appliance

DAM blows away what Free wear we were previous trying to tweak and change for use to benefit the County. But as we looked into DAM we saw much more available with this product compared to what we had been trying to use over the last 10 years. It took a lot of convincing to get County Administration on board with County IT but after we had Dell come in and demo software and appliand to BOS and County Administrator they saw the added benefits of going with DAM!It has been a great addition to our County IT tools!

We use ADAudit Plus along with our Wazuh based SIEM, having removed AlienVault. The two together work in complementary ways, allowing us to not only audit, but also vet and analyze the results of our investigations and continuous quality improvement efforts. Logaholic was looked at as an alternative, but ultimately we felt it was too website-focused for our mostly-Windows server shop.

Return on Investment

KACE Asset Management Appliance

  • Asset Tracking works exceptionally well, until the AMP agent breaks an endpoint machine. Quick re-install of the AMP agent usually resolves the issue.
  • The remote provisioning tool fails 90% of the time. If this worked properly or informed us why the remote provisioning failed, this tool could become an invaluable asset.
  • We canceled the support contact because the renewal price was expensive and cost just as much as the initial purchase price.

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

  • It has helped with Audit time and accuracy
  • More time to do other work
  • Peace of mind knowing you are compliant
