Why your peers choose Ninja over SCCM for patch management

Patch management can be time consuming and complex…

Complex competiton
Many patch management solutions require on-prem infrastructure, workarounds for remote workers, and complex implementations which increase costs and leave vulnerabilities that could be exploited.

… but NinjaOne makes patching fast, easy, and reliable.

Patching Hero
With no complex infrastructure to manage and a modern, intuitive workflow, NinjaOne simplifies patch management, improves patch compliance, and reduces time spent on patching.

NinjaOne is the clear choice

No Infrastructure required

As a fully SaaS solution, the only cost of Ninja to you is the subscription. You don’t have to purchase expensive hardware and maintain or upgrade hardware over time. Ninja is easy to implement and requires minimal configuration which significantly reduces labor costs compared to SCCM.

Built for remote management

Ninja is 100% cloud-based and built to be both location- and network-agnostic making managing devices anywhere, on any network easy. Ninja solves the field, remote, and hybrid worker device management problem common in on-prem solutions. Off-network management via Cloud Management Gateway requires a paid addon-service for SCCM.

Pull-style patching

Ninja offers greater granularity and control over patching than SCCM with the additional benefit of utilizing pull-style patching. Ninja relies on individual endpoints to identify vulnerabilities and missing patches then automates approval and deployment. No need to create and curate baselines to keep all your endpoints in step.
