Conclusion

ManageEngine SharePoint Plus and Quest solutions for SharePoint offer similar feature sets However, SharePoint Manager Plus has an edge over Quest in the following areas:

  • SharePoint Manager Plus is one product that does it all. On the other hand, Quest requires an administrator to deploy two individual products (i.e.) Change Auditor for reporting and auditing and Security Explorer to manage permissions.
  • SharePoint Manager Plus enables administrators to migrate sites from SharePoint on-premises to SharePoint online. Quest does not support site migration to SharePoint online.
  • Quest can only help administrators in managing permissions, whilst SharePoint Manager Plus can help administrators manage users and groups.
  • Quest does not have the option to archive audit logs which are essential in meeting compliance requirements.
  • SharePoint Manager Plus is priced much lower ($795) than Quest’s SharePoint solutions. Deploying both products of Quest would cost $4795.50.
