NinjaOne has been amazing in getting patching done. What has put it above and beyond though is its scripting. It natively works with batch, powershell, and shellscript. This means custom scripting is simple and fast. Some times, especially with shellscripts, they do not run properly but in comes direct access to the different tools from the computer screen. Being able to connect to a system using powershell, CMD, or Shell means you can directly input commands and not rely on a script for those one off issues.

Read full review Pros Ninja does a nice job on providing robust monitoring of network servers. It provides peace of mind with monitoring of clients server infrastructure. Ninja's interface is simple yet clean. It makes navigating and getting where you need to be easy. Ninja's staff is always willing to help and their support is top-notch! They work hard to address any issues quickly and efficiently. Read full review Alerting on outages. ThousandEyes provides a few different options to receive alerts: you can have alerts emailed to a subset of (or all) users, there is a basic Slack integration, and if more flexibility is required (or your preferred method of being alerted isn't built-in) webhooks can be used to hit another API. Speeding up mean time to resolution (or mean time to innocence if you're a more siloed and blame-happy organization). Failure alerts can be configured to include the cause of the failure instead of just "resource x is down." For example, the alerts can come out and say that a website was down due to an HTTP 500, which will help prevent staff from spinning their wheels trying to diagnose the network from the client to the web server. Post mortems and root cause analyses. After an outage has been resolved, it is possible to go back for up to 30 days without losing any level of detail for the test in question, and to view information like the DNS response received, the network path taken by the traffic, and any added latency incurred by an individual link. It can also be used to view Internet routing changes surrounding the incident. Support. Every ticket or chat I have opened has been met by a friendly and helpful staff member that has been able to provide helpful insight into what is causing a particular issue, and what steps they will take on their side to resolve an issue or provide suggestions of steps to take on our side if necessary. Read full review Cons 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. Read full review Continue to innovate and support more and more services. In the world of IOT and point to point traffic being more and more prevalent creating a flexible product is fantastic. Build on the end user product, last mile and even more sharing.

We will definitely renew and maybe even extend our usage of ThousandEyes. We have been using ThousandEyes now for a couple of years and it has shown us major benefits. With the new options it offers for SD-WAN for us it is a no brainer to renew our current licenses
Read full review Usability
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.

You have online support from the tool itself 24/7 and they are very responsive. We also have a specific account manager and specific engineer assigned to help us with very specific questions for our environment. The level of response to our requirements is always super high. We have requested specific features to be added and these have been developed and introduced very quick tot he product (within weeks). Their DevOps and agile approach seems to pay off.

NinjaRMM was easier to work with, better on price, and had less complicated software. Install was simple and use is a breeze. All the other vendors cost more and didn't have everything I wanted all in one place. Also, I like to support local companies when possible or at least work with companies in the same time zone, which they are both.

One of the biggest differences is the ability to use an enterprise-agent. This is huge because not all web applications are available on the internet. There are a number of internal-only applications that we need to collect data on and monitor availability. Being able to test those from internal is really nice. Both applications have various agents around the world for testing, but only Thousand Eyes let you specifically run your own agent.
