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.

Sophos Mobile Control is greatly welcome when corporate networks allow BYOD on the office, and on the wireless networks around it. It allows you to control what the users are doing, and on this kind of explanation that I'm doing, perhaps EVERY company is suited for this kind of example. Nowadays the same user that has access to our corporate network is allowed to access multiple apps, that the IT security department isn't aware of. To have visibility is one of the most important things among security issues.

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.

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.

Sophos

  • The platform was developed many years ago, a fresher look (even for the cloud-based console) would be appreciated.
  • The ability to control mail platforms other than MS Exchange.
  • The ability to control more features on iOS (knowing how the iOS Platform is at the moment).

      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)

      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.

      Personally, haven't seen any other MDM on the market, but I feel since Sophos is greatly known to have easy to use products, that the others may not be as easy to use as Sophos Mobile Control. One of the key factors for organizations to choose Sophos Mobile Control and Security is because the Android OS (most attacked OS on the planet) is protected with award-winning antivirus and anti malware from Sophos. We have seen as advisors, how unprotected customers, get huge telecom bills because of the lack of security, since they think that an Android OS is healthy enough... big mistake. One simple thing I always tell friends, family and customers, protect your Android device with Sophos Security (it's free for home users).

      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.

      • We invest and make the ROI very quickly seen, when management on any company sees what they were missing on possible data breaches.
      • As a positive impact, it allows end users to quickly catch the true meaning for "Corporate Data".
      • A negative impact, sometimes is that the end user feels as it's being followed all around, which depending on the profile, it's a must on a device with corporate data access and/or storage.
