NinjaOne vs. Tanium FAQs

While Tanium tackles enterprise needs, NinjaOne boasts a comprehensive, unified endpoint management system that scales to fit businesses of any size. This makes NinjaOne a better choice for IT teams and MSPs seeking scalability and flexibility.

NinjaOne is also built with ease of use in mind, ensuring that even teams with limited IT experience can navigate its features and functionalities effectively. This focus on user-friendliness can significantly reduce onboarding time and streamline overall IT operations, unlike solutions with steeper learning curves, which is one of Tanium’s shortcomings listed above.

Tanium has a Knowledge Base that everyone can access. However, it may need improvement to be more intuitive, modern, and user-friendly. NinjaOne, on the other hand, has a comprehensive knowledge base that is always up to date, ensuring IT teams can easily find the information they need to troubleshoot problems and optimize their workflows.

Tanium offers documentation and video training as part of its module user guide. Tanium’s target audience may find these resources helpful for learning the software. NinjaOne offers powerful documentation and training videos, too. The platform also offers unlimited free onboarding sessions, ensuring a smooth learning curve and continued user success throughout your NinjaOne journey.

Compared to NinjaOne, Tanium has limited customer support channels. NinjaOne has an email/help desk, FAQs, forums, and a comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge base.

NinjaOne’s dedicated support team boasts an average first response time of 68 minutes with an average CSAT score of 98%. This makes NinjaOne’s support and service rank #1 based on a third-party survey for MSPs. Overall, it offers responsive support, ensuring users receive timely assistance when needed.

One of Tanium’s shortcomings mentioned above is that users may find picking up the query language challenging and complex. This differs from NinjaOne’s “single pane of glass” approach, which is built with ease of use in mind and ensures a smooth workflow for its users.

Both Tanium and NinjaOne offer free trials with full access to features, allowing you to test the software and see if it meets your organization’s IT needs.
