Automox

Product Summary

Automox is a cloud-native endpoint management solution that offers automated patch management and configuration of endpoints across multiple OS. Automox provides managed service providers (MSPs) and IT teams visibility of all endpoints. It allows organizations to automate software patch deployment, create custom scripts for Windows, MacOS, and Linux endpoints, and support third-party software.

Use Cases

  • Patch management:
    Automox automates software updates and the deployment of critical patches for endpoint device systems. Patch automation and custom configurations are available for Windows, MacOS, and Linux, as well as third-party software, including Google, Amazon, Adobe, and Java.
  • Remote monitoring:
    The built-in Automox Remote Control offers full visibility of all endpoints. IT administrators can locate non-compliant devices and remotely access, patch, and troubleshoot any issues.
  • Automated vulnerability remediation:
    Automox can integrate with scanning solutions to detect endpoint vulnerability.

Shortcomings

  • Complexity:
    Some users might find the platform’s advanced features a bit overwhelming, particularly if they are looking for a simple patch management solution.
  • Pricing:
    Automox’s pricing can be on the higher end for small to mid-sized businesses, which may pose a challenge for budget-conscious organizations.
  • Reporting:
    Some users have expressed that Automox’s reporting capabilities do not meet their needs as reports have limited information. Furthermore, the lack of multi-tenancy requires users to view reports from each tenant individually.
