NinjaOne
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
NinjaOne
  • 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.

Cons
NinjaOne
  • 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.

Usability
NinjaOne
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.

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.

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

Not as polished as Veeam, but a lot cheaper when backing up data from over 10 servers. Otherwise, if you are backing up just one server, and don't need much in the way of support, the Veeam Community edition is a very cost-effective backup solution. When comparing the support and cost of Novabackup for a small to mid-size business, it is a very reliable solution.

Return on Investment
NinjaOne
  • 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!

  • Provides confidence that we can recover from data loss or corruption.
  • Enabled easy P2V for our servers.
