ManageEngine Desktop Central

Simple to use for managing endpoints (mass deployments, imaging, remote control) [and] simple to learn for new users. Simple to implement.Not very good at reporting Software Inventory and not suitable for controlling non-office assets (Additional add-on needed).

Tanium

Tanium is suitable in any sort of organization where you want to look at your machines and what kind of applications they are running. One good example is removing an application from where it is not supposed to be in the organization. By using Tanium trace with basic English, first you can search all the machines which have that application, and second you can create a package either through a power shell command or CLI command and remove that application from all the machines at once.This is really saves lot of manual work, time, and also helps in balancing assets across an organization.

Pros

ManageEngine Desktop Central

  • System inventory - ManageEngine scans every computer, listing a detailed report of all hardware and software.
  • Patch management - Microsoft products and most third party software receive security updates on a regular schedule without user intervention.

Tanium

  • Tanium helps in identifying a list of infected machines with any vulnerabilities. For example if we create a package with list of Windows vulnerabilities, it will push the package through its sensors to all the nodes, and trace out the infected machines in our organization.
  • It helps in adding IOC's which helps us in track down the hashes or shah files existing with that IOC 's machines.
  • The most impressive thing about Tanium is that it can quarantine the machine of our choice without connecting to the network, which really helps a lot of times in containment of any infected machines.

Cons

ManageEngine Desktop Central

  • Sometimes it will report that systems are missing patches when they are really not.
  • I wish it was able to pull warranty details for computers directly instead of having to enter manually.

Tanium

  • One issue is its ring topology, as the data is stored in central hubs and pushed through its peer nodes. If the central hub fails, then the associated node will also result in failure.
  • Another problem is that all Tanium management is on premises requiring the customer to maintain it. If we want ask any help from Tanium support we always get a response like "you are maintaining it yourselves and it's your responsibility.
  • The Tanium User Interface could be improved a bit as, although the tool is rich in performance, a more impressive UI might really attract new customers.

The other tools we use do not have an inventory management tool. Also not many tools we use intergrate well with this product.

Tanium

Tanium is best for identifying infrastructure infections, and it is easy use where a user who has basic English knowledge can search his queries very easily. Tanium's exceptional feature is quarantining the machine from network, and this is a really impressive feature which should gain them new customers. Tanium helps in removing the suspicious application quickly, which saves time and manual work.

Return on Investment

ManageEngine Desktop Central

  • The impact has been positive. Being able to manage entire sets of assets, rather than addressing them one at a time, has been huge. The ability to deploy an application without disturbing an end-user is great as well.
  • No negative impact on ROI.
