Application Patch Management

with Patch Manager


Fully functional for 30 days

An IT security manager or systems administrator aims to ensure that all applications are patched, and that the IT environment isn’t affected by security flaws. This is difficult due to various factors, including having to keep a variety of software patched, such as Microsoft® and 3rd-party applications, and the inability to automate and guarantee successful patch deployment.

SolarWinds® Patch Manager helps you prepare for this important task by simplifying application patch management with powerful discovery and compliance reporting functionalities.

Benefits of application patch management using Patch Manager

If you have WSUS or SCCM in your environment, you are likely patching Microsoft® software. It is challenging to use multiple software tools to patch non-Microsoft applications like Adobe® or Java™.

Using Patch Manager, you can:

  • Extend your Microsoft WSUS and SCCM capabilities for publishing 3rd-party applications.
  • Create the right pre- and post-installation environment for successful patching.
  • Reduce security risks by controlling patch deployment.
  • Create out-of-the-box reports, dashboard views, and manage known vulnerabilities to pass compliance audits.
  1. Implementing application patch management

    Patch Manager gives you a comprehensive list of available updates for applications, further categorized as critical, security, definition, and 3rd-party updates and service packs. Also, the update notifications are available on the Patch Manager console and via email. You can select a specific update and perform various actions, including defining the target computer group, choosing approve or not approve, and scheduling deployment time and date.

PackageBoot™ technology automates application patch management by allowing you to create the right pre- and post-installation environment for complex install scenarios for software like Java™.
