It has an Admin friendly interface and easily customable for us. Works so stable and fast.
After upgrading software, client agent upgrade operation must be faster than current.

Tries to do too many things
Comments: This product advertises a lot of features and functionalities that try to make the solution a one-stop shop for IT departments. Unfortunately none of the features work well or work at all. When compared with other patching solutions, software deployment solutions and help desk toolsets, it falls flat on its face and does not meet the demands of an enterprise sized organization. Support staff is foreign based and can be very difficult working against the language barriers or trying to explain the problem even though they appear to be trying to help.
Useful dashboard for inventory of hardware and software.
Patching is extremely complicated compared to competitors. Agents deployed to endpoints consume large amount of CPU and RAM. Customer support is a small team with most tickets taking 3 days minimum. Every case starts with uploading logs. Product patches are being released constantly to fix the large number of bugs in software. Bandwidth management for remote offices does not function well and will easily consume an entire circuit. If this happens it is difficult to stop the traffic until the action has completed. Small mistakes can have big consequences when configuring deployments.

Endpoint Central - All the Options
Comments: We've used this for years and it seems to get better and better every update. We've looked at other products every year or so but they tend to lack some functions.
EC has patch management, Nessus integration with threats, OS deployment and remote control. The remote control works well for our helpdesk as well as the OS deployment from images. These are used daily.
I'd like the ability to change some default options so I don't have to change them every time (remote control). I'd like more insight into failed patches without log diving.
Alternatives Considered: NinjaOne
Reasons for Choosing ManageEngine Endpoint Central: We wanted an all in one, easy to use software.
Reasons for Switching to ManageEngine Endpoint Central: A few more options were in EC that we wanted. OS deploy, firmware deploy.
ManageEngine make managing remote workforces easy
Easy and reliable patch management for Windows, Mac and Linux, including 3rd party support for applications and browsers.
Asset management only works for devices it manages, sadly no option to include other equipment like monitors, etc.
Alternatives Considered: ConnectWise ScreenConnect
Reasons for Choosing ManageEngine Endpoint Central: WSUS didn't integrate well with other products, automation was flaky and reporting non-existent.
Reasons for Switching to ManageEngine Endpoint Central: Best support matching our requirements and outstanding remote access. Also, it offers a self-service portal for users making common software simple and cutting down on service requests.
