The Real Costs of WSUS

The Real Costs of WSUS

Is WSUS Actually Worth It?

“Why should I pay for an IT management tool? I get WSUS for free with Windows!”

While WSUS might come with Windows, it is certainly not free—there are hidden expenses to consider.

Looking at the number of hours wasted and additional software needed to fully manage your environments, WSUS comes out as more expensive than any paid-for IT management software.

According to analysis by Tolly, using WSUS requires an average of 2,454 hours of labor per year. With an assumed IT labor rate of $50/hour, that’s $122,700 a year! Then you have to factor in the management of servers, Mac devices, Linux devices, and third-party software.

Why Syxsense is the Better Choice

Spending so many resources on only updating your Windows OS is a dramatic waste of the time your IT team could spend on more critical or interesting projects.

Implementing a solution, such as Syxsense, will simplify your deployment process. From a single browser Syxsense can manage PCs, Macs, and Linux devices, as well as devices inside and outside the network. You can also deploy third-party software, track task status, generate reports, and more. You can manage and secure everything, everywhere, all from the cloud.

Syxsense allows you to manage and secure vulnerabilities exposed by open ports, disabled firewalls, ineffective user account policies, and security compliance violations from remote workers. Gain visibility into OS and third-party vulnerabilities while increasing cyber resilience through automated patch management and vulnerability scanning.

With an IT management solution like this, you save money. The cost of the software is offset by the time and resources reallocated into IT projects that improve your company.

Proactively Protect Your Organization

It’s important to get the most out of your investment, and in this unpredictable time, detecting software vulnerabilities isn’t enough. Traditional security scanners only do half the job by identifying and tracking possible vulnerabilities and exposure without eliminating the risk.

Our vulnerability scanning feature not only shows you what’s wrong, but also deploys the solution. Insights into the OS misconfigurations and compliance violations reduce your attack surface and increase peace of mind.
