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.
  • Vulnerability discovery:
    The management and monitoring tool provides real-time vulnerability discovery, reducing ransomware risks for the IT infrastructure.
  • Easy deployment:
    Technicians can quickly deploy applications and software to their endpoints.

Shortcomings

  • Software compatibility:
    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.

Shortcomings

  • Patch management issues:

    Whereas Datto limits functionality at the start to lure you into signing a contract, NinjaOne allows you to use their entire platform so you can fully understand their solution from the beginning.
