Sedulo Study

Hidden expenses increase total costs
for WSUS and SCCM to over $6.6M.

Hardware requirements and operational costs for WSUS and SCCM push the total cost burden to over
$6.6 Million, or $11 per endpoint per month, for typical customers.

Managing remote teams with on-prem tools costs 350% more.

Using WSUS and SCCM to manage on- and off-site teams is far more difficult and expensive compared to cloud-native tools.

Cloud-based patching offers comparable value and better benefits.

Automox offers the core components that drive users to SCCM and WSUS, plus provides more features and benefits beyond just Windows support.

On-prem tools cost orgs $3.58 more per endpoint.

With WSUS and SCCM, orgs pay over $11 per endpoint per month versus $7.42 per endpoint with Automox over five years.

Automox easily scales to meet needs and cuts costs immediately.

Switching to cloud-based patching requires no hardware costs, is easily deployed, and can even be done through SCCM before decommissioning.

Patch faster, more frequently with automated endpoint management

Automation is vital to hardening your endpoints faster than adversaries can exploit vulnerabilities. Only Automox lets you automate any task that can be scripted on any endpoint, regardless of location or domain.

With Automox Worklets™, you can automate and enforce any scriptable action on endpoints, from software deployment to enforcing local configuration policies.

Reduce complexity by eliminating on-premises patch servers

WSUS and SCCM solutions require on-premises hardware for each location, which demands constant versioning maintenance as Microsoft releases new features and bug fixes.

As a completely cloud-native endpoint hardening platform, Automox does not require any on-premises hardware, so you can focus more time and energy on doing what matters for the business.
