Simply Superb!

Pros

Besides the fact that the features I use is free, the easy deployment and setup is simply mind boggling, to be free. Usually free things are not very user friendly, but boy am I wrong with Action1. Simply superb!

Cons

None that I can find to mention here, especially after I'm getting it for free...

Fantastic Patch Management / RMM solution

Reviewed on 6/3/2024

Really great, other providers nickel and dime you for features, don't support basic common-sense things, or are difficult to deal with in general. Action1 is fantastic, you're dealing with real people that understand what you're trying to do, not some public/VC company that just wants to squeeze every last penny out of you and doesn't care if their product sucks.

Pros

Patch management is great, lots of apps are covered, patches can be scheduled, you can set a retry window if a host isn't online. Very easy to use. Remote desktop works well and connects quickly. You can remotely deploy software and run scripts (from their library, or upload your own).

Cons

It's hard to find anything to complain about. It would be nice if they offered MDM like control over workstations (GPO type settings). Once in a while vulnerability management has a false positive but it's a fairly new feature at the time of writing.

Great resource for smaller companies

Reviewed on 13/7/2021

Pros

I appreciate the pricing and functionality of this software. It may be basic in comparison to other applications, but it does a good job with hardware inventory and software patch tracking. I also like the remote control ability. Not as robust as some application, but is still very useful.

Cons

Remote control could use some enhancements. The option to turn off the request for users to accept the remote control connection. Often can't make the connection to the client. No error message.

Response from Action1

Hi Kristin,
Thank you so much for sharing your kind words with us. Your review means a lot to our team.
We also appreciate you've brought some issues to our attention as we are constantly improving our product. We are glad to inform you that the ability to turn off the request for users to accept the remote-control connection will come with the next product release.
At the same time, we are sorry to hear you are having some troubles connecting to the client. Please, contact [email protected], and they will be happy to assist you.

Action1 is great. I love that they have a discord channel where you can talk with other users. I've received some great support from them, and from time to time the founders of the company even talk to us is the channel.

Pros

I love the fact that Action1 has many features straight out of the box. They market themselves as a Patch Management solution, but they do some great features such as software installation, Vulnerability scanning, and remote access as well.

Cons

The time from when you tell the system to perform a task, to when it actually does is a bit slow. Nothing too drastic though. we are talking around 30 seconds.

Action1 did more than NinjaOne with a flat pricing scale. Ninja was so much for this, and so much for that type of pricing.

I can only say that Action1 is fantastic, and I hightly recommend it to anyone looking for a patch managment solution.

Pros

Action1 has been a lifesaver for us as a small ICT Team. We now have full overview of our fleet of windows devices and can see any updates or vulnerabilites at a pane of glass. In my team we often talk about how a great find Action1 was. We looked at different solutions, but they were either too expensive or did not have the features we wanted. We love how the team at Action1 regulary keep us up to date webinars, and frequently publish new features.

Cons

I can't think of anything I don't like about Action1. I do wish that we also could see our MacOS fleet in Action1, but the good news is that that is on their roadmap.
