N-able

N-able N-central is highly suitable for IT Admins within large organizations that need oversight of all it equipment. Ideal for managing organizations that need inventory and management of more than 10 IT devices. Highly inappropriate for smaller scale companies that mange less than 10 PCs

SecurityCenter is definitely the juggernaut of the industry. You don't see many shops that are not using Nessus and or SecurityCenter. As a pen tester, I do not judge shops that use Nessus as a catch all, as there are a lot of things you can get hyper focused on and a tool like this helps you see things you may have missed.

      Overall we have liked our solar winds experience, however, as our company has grown to support larger enterprises, this product does not have the functionality that our teams need in order to fully support them. The lack of granularity with backups and lack of ability to support nutanix environments is slowly drawing us into the use of other tools.

      Usability

      N-able

      The user interface is fairly straight forward, with logic groupings for objects. I did not deploy this software, but am one of the daily administrators. Once you get the correct agent package (Which can be a challenge) the integration into AD is not bad. The UI could be more customized, but that may have been a design choice.

      Support Rating

      N-able

      For the most part, support has been good, but often we need to reach out to our account manager to ask that cases be escalated. First level support can often be frustrating to work with. There are particular support engineers that we know we won't get good service from when they are assigned to cases. The level of support offered did become worse when the company was sold to SolarWinds.

      N-Central has automation manager, which allows you to automate multiple tasks, thereby saving time and effort through Automated patching. AV and Backups are built into the system, and can be deployed by checking a box. It's easy to update and keep secure. File transfer and remote controls are great and make easy work from off-site.

      Tenable.sc [(formerly SecurityCenter)] has been around for a long time and in our opinion offered the easiest configuration for compliance scanning and it's rating system was more impressive than Rapid 7's.
