Action1

Product Summary

Action1 is a cloud-based management system for internal IT departments and managed service providers. The platform features a typical monitoring and management tool, but the solution mostly highlights its patch management capabilities.

Use Cases

  • Patch management:
    Action1 poised its patch management capabilities as its cornerstone feature, allowing continuous patch compliance for servers and workstations.

    Technicians can quickly deploy applications and software to their endpoints.

Shortcomings

    The Action1 agent is strictly Windows. The core platform requires a Windows machine (Windows 7 or later) to function.
  • Navigation:
    More advanced features are buried within the platform, making it hard for technicians to locate them.
  • Reporting:
    Action1’s reporting section could be improved since there’s currently no way to pull a report per device of all the software installed.
