Microsoft® Patch Tuesday can have many critical updates, and it’s imperative for system administrators to have the right software to help diagnose and fix Windows® Update Agent configuration problems. Using Patch Manager, you can:
The Microsoft® update packages are automatically synchronized to the Patch Manager server. Notifications are available on the Patch Manager console and via email. Patch Manager helps you extend and leverage your existing Microsoft WSUS server, which allows you to quickly publish Microsoft, 3rd-party, and custom packages in your environment. It’s easy to build custom update packages using the Package Wizard for deployment to multiple systems.
A comprehensive view of patch status and application vulnerabilities are provided through Patch Manager’s customizable reports. These can report over 500 fields of data using over 100 report definitions. Reports can be sorted, filtered, and grouped by application type, patch status, and WSUS target group. If you have custom packages (or software like Java™ withcomplex install scenarios) created for your environment that require a specific pre- and post-installation environment, you can automate these patches using built-in PackageBoot™ technology. Patch Manager in your WSUS environment helps you prevent security vulnerabilities by facilitating successful patching, which significantly reduces your patch workload.
