N-able

SolarWinds patch management has had issues over the years. Sometimes requiring manual intervention to get resolved. The UI [with N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)] makes it easy to see status of systems and identify any alerts easily. Remotely monitoring the status of servers/computers. Managing the systems, patching, systems maintenance and remote support.

Pros

N-able

  • It provides fantastic remote access capabilities. The Take Control tool gives us a robust platform that is capable of remote controlling almost any endpoint we need to and the chat, file transfer, and screen recording tools are all exceptionally useful.
  • SolarWinds RMM is particularly useful as a single pane of glass solution that allows us to monitor and manage thousands of endpoints across dozens of different clients. It does a solid job of allowing us to sort, organize, and filter based off of who and what we want to see at any given time.
  • Due to its client based nature, the platform excels at in-depth monitoring of services, event logs, and the functionality of systems with custom script checks.

  • Remote access. It's as good as any other on the market. It also allows for RDP connections which is a nice feature.
  • Inventory management. We get some great insight from the reports we can run.
  • Quick Jobs. If there's an app or service you use, there may be a quick job to install and update it remotely.

Cons

N-able

  • UI speed and threading across multiple windows (1 window refreshing, causes all refreshes to hang).
  • Load times in certain menus, regardless of server specs.
  • Integration with 3rd party applications.
  • Speed of dev team response in regards to existing features malfunctioning, or major bugs that Solarwinds does not consider major.

      Usability

      N-able

      The interface is easy to navigate. Setting up policies is straight forward. The antivirus and web filter are simple and exceptions are easy to make. Upgrading the agent is made simple and creating scripts is made fool proof. (Well, almost)

      The ease of use, full functionality, reliability and excellent support.[N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)] gives users a full suite of tools with a single installable file. Unlike standard tools, you don't have to install several different executables to be able to have fully protected end points.

      We have not had much trouble with Panda Systems Management. They've been fairly responsive, and do take suggestions. The onboarding process was smooth and about as easy as they could make it. There are times when it does take a while for them to respond, but they usually do respond within a few hours at worst.

      Alternatives Considered

      N-able

      SolarWinds definitely is the the most ready out of the box as far as getting is up and running and you can start using it where other system go from need ing a little setup like importing MIBS to completely needing to configure the system. As far a performance once things are up and working I feel they all do a good job at basic monitoring and management. The difference is that SolarWinds does a good job at having things templated but allows you to customize some attributes. If you are want to make major customization for alerts and monitoring and other things SolarWinds is not the best option. But, then again, you will not need a team just to manage the system.

      Return on Investment

      N-able

      • The ROI is immediate for us. The advanced alerting alone makes this product an ace in our bag. The confidence you have in your network is wonderful.
      • Another big ROI we get from the advanced alerting is the peace of mind that our engineers feel. We are a 24/7 shop, so being on-call goes from being hectic to extremely manageable.
      • The only negative I can honestly say is when the time comes to patch the product. Micro-patches are easy enough, but jumping versions can be a bit taxing.

      • It's allowed us to be more proactive when it comes to things. We can keep an eye on computers that may need replacement. It was a lifesaver when updating to Windows 10.
      • It saves so much time compared to our previous remote software, GoToAssist. While I think GoToAssist may be a bit more solid when in action, there's too much setup time, even with unattended access. Panda is click and go.
      • Remote command prompt has also been a lifesaver, and nonintrusive for the user. The users think we are magic.
