If you are managing a very large number of computers, I would say 1000+, the standard patching tools provided by Microsoft will fail to do their job properly. This is where you will benefit from ManageEngine PATCH MANAGER Plus, being agent-based it is fast, easy to manage, and reliable. If you require functionality more than just patching, like security auditing, you have to look elsewhere.

If you are looking for an affordable solution to RMM that just works, you should consider using NinjaOne. Their platform allows you to lock down the installation and prevent uninstallation by end users, it allows for direct ticket integration within the sys tray icon, and it is a very consistent product that will stay running when it is in use. That is not always the case with RMM solutions and for the price, NinjaOne is great.

Pros
ManageEngine, A Div of Zoho Corporation Pvt Ltd
  • All the patches are tested before delivered to us.
  • It's on cloud so we does not need to maintain Hardware and Network.
  • It also upgrades the hardware drivers & BIOS. But for BIOS only we use monthly updates no automatic policy just push to target computers.

  • Remote connections: the NinjaRemote client is spectacular and very easy to use and navigate. It quickly connects to customer systems so my engineers are able to work. As a bonus, they also offer a really good mobile app to connect to client systems.
  • Antivirus: Bitdefender Endpoint Protection is built directly into the NinjaOne portal. This makes deploying and maintaining AV very easy.
  • OS Patching: NinjaOne makes it very easy to handle patching across multiple clients and locations. It is very easy to use and doesn't take long to set up.
  • Support: NinjaOne support is always very prompt and helpful.
  • Documentation: the NinjaOne Dojo is a one-stop shop for all of your FAQs, guides, and forum needs. You can find almost anything here to help you deploy and maintain NinjaOne.
  • Automation Library: NinjaOne comes preloaded with a large number of ready-to-go automations. They also provide you with a scripting module to create your own.

  • Would like to be able to still install patches that are older than 3 months
  • Would like to be able to upload our own installers, but understand this is part of endpoint central

  • NinjaOne does support Mac, however I would like to have more options for automation and scheduled task on Mac devices.
  • I would like it if NinjaOne also provided an MDM solution.
  • It would be nice is NinjaOne could integrate a PAM solution as well.

I have not had any real issues with NinjaOne and as long as it keeps doing what it is meant to do, I do not plan on looking elsewhere. I need software to be stable and NinjaOne is stable.

Ninja's interface is clean and simple. Overall usability from an interface perspective is good. Some items, policies and scripting for instance, are a bit cumbersome and it's really not clear how to implement with a best practice mind-site. Ninja RMM got the job done for us but as we pushed our needs more into automation and efficiency we felt it wasn't keeping up with our speed of growth. There is definitely usability in the product, and it will get the job done, but there are other RMM's out there that fit better in our business.

The support team at Patch Manager Plus has been awesome. Very responsive and knowledgeable. There are times when there is confusion between different tickets but there is still good service.

Support has been very responsive and my account rep Brian K. has communicated with me continuously making sure we had everything we need. Not like other MDMs where they sign you up and that's the last you hear from them. NinjaOne makes sure you use the product to its best application and you are successful and continue as the product features grow.

SolarWinds was not selected because it runs on top of
SCCM which in itself is problematic and unreliable. We need an application that
runs in standalone mode and does not rely on any other application. SolarWinds
is also one of the most expensive. Kaseya and GFI LanGuard are overkill as they contain
functionality that we do not need or already have. GFI LanGuard for instance
does security auditing the same as Qualys that we already have. Kaseya is a full
management and automation solution.

NinjaOne has more overall features than these competitors bundled in their package. Both of these other products have separate add-ons that will accomplish the additional features that NinjaOne bundles in. While it seems that both may be slightly more powerful when it comes to the overall RMM software, NinjaOne has a much cleaner UI and makes it much easier to work in. NinjaOne also seems to always be growing and implementing solutions that customer ask for, without any additional up-charges. These competitors seem to have their finished product and additional add-ons like ticketing are completely separate offerings that are both separate charges and a completely different product all together

Return on Investment
ManageEngine, A Div of Zoho Corporation Pvt Ltd
  • It has saved engineers so much time when monitoring patching out of hours.
  • We no longer need to log into each individual server to patch it if it's failed, it can all be done from inside ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus itself.

  • Seeing as how we are a remote/hybrid workforce, using NinjaOne has saved us hundreds of hours in remote management.
  • If we did not use Ninja and then migrated to using Ninja, it would pay for itself in one or two months for a whole years worth of costs!
