A cost effective, comprehensive patch management solution.

2021-05-17

As mentioned, this platform caught patches our main RMM tool didn't find.

Pros

PMP is very hands-off in that you can schedule something and forget it. Reports are informative, and there is no guessing if something applied or not.

Cons

You may have to rely on a third part configuration management tool to push out the installer.

Patch Manager Plus Cloud SaaS Capabilities

2020-07-21

Security posture of Microsoft Endpoints for users working from Home was a big challenge as third party software was causing security non-compliance events and disrupting the M365 Conditional Access policies.

Pros

The product is very well designed for an on premises Active Directory network.

Cons

It is not yet a seamless Cloud SaaS experience when using only Azure AD with no on-premises AD.

Awesome Alternative to WSUS

2020-02-28

We were using WSUS an decided to get a better solution that gave us more flexibility. Patch Manager Plus gave us this and a lot more. I have used Shavlik and IBM for Windows patching but this product is much simpler to use and deploy and just as equally effective as the bigger names out there.

Pros

The setup, reporting and support is hands down the best I have used for Windows patch management. solutions

Cons

More out of the box reporting could be included but there is a link that allows you to request more reports.

Patch Manager Plus Improves Security Posture

2021-05-19

When I started at this organization, there was no centralized patch management solution so Patch Manager Plus helped fill that gap and helped us improve our security posture.

Pros

Patch Manager Plus is fairly easy to configure and automatically deploys Microsoft and third party patches.

Cons

The only downside I see is that there isn't much explanation as to why some deployments fail and sometimes it takes a while to find a solution.

Patch management made simple

2021-03-05

I am still running a trial but so far I am very impressed, it eases the work for patch management immensely, and helps us focus on clients that have fallen behind in patching.

Pros

The ability to effortlessly patch servers and workstations with windows patches as well as a huge number of 3rd party software.

Cons

filters and settings are not reused from one menu to another nor between users. meaning that all users have to set up the same filters in all menus.

Excellent Patch Manager

2020-12-10

We're still in the trial, but so far this has been a vast improvement over our last Patch Management software system.

Pros

ManageEngine provide a free one-to-one demo session for all new customers - covering any and all aspects of setup and use. 24 hour support through live-chat facility hosted system available, meaning rapid installation, and no server requirement huge range of 3rd party apps can patch drivers, and even (some) 3rd party a/v definitions

Cons

If anything, it would be the time it might take to fully customise the solution to your needs - but that's simply a consequence of such a vast feature set.
