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.

Tripwire Enterprise is great for hosting/data center environments and it greatly helps where console screenshots and reporting fill a lot of our client internal audit needs for security and change control.

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.

Cons
ManageEngine, A Div of Zoho Corporation Pvt Ltd
  • 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

  • In previous versions the management console was a little hard to navigate in some respects.
  • I'm sure this has changed over time but we hope the reporting system has gotten more granular.
  • I really don't have to many cons for this product, I recommend it for every company I work for!

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.

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.

Honestly, I haven't used other products to do what Tripwire does, it's always my first recommendation.

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.

  • Tripwire has been a positive business impact for us because of its trusted name. Our customers require software like Tripwire because they know their data and security concerns are in good hands when it's deployed.
  • The ROI for Tripwire is also a positive for our business because of the time and man power saved in due diligence and reporting for our clients' internal auditing.
