Quickly Deploy Security Patches

with Patch Manager


Fully functional for 30 days

Unpatched software leaves your network vulnerable to malware and cyber threats. When a widespread software security incident occurs, system administrators rush to apply the security patch or critical fix to hundreds of thousands of servers and workstations.

SolarWinds® Patch Manager helps you proactively address known software vulnerabilities and security patch management, saving you weeks of time- and labor-intensive work.

Benefits of security patch management using Patch Manager

Security patches released for Microsoft® or 3rd-party software, including Java™, are important updates that need to be rolled out quickly to a select group of servers or workstations. Failed updates commonly occur when packages are not installed properly, leaving computers vulnerable to security threats.

Patch Manager allows you to:

  • Quickly check for critical or security updates
  • Ensure with PackageBoot™ technology that there are no failed patches
  • Gain tighter control over patch deployment
  • Run readily available reports to assess current patch status, manage known vulnerabilities, and pass compliance audits
  1. Implementing security patch management

    SolarWinds Patch Manager notifies you of all updates via email and the console window, and extends your existing Microsoft® Windows Server® Update Service (WSUS) or System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) environment to publish 3rd-party updates as well. To simplify the patch process, the updates are categorized as security, critical, definition, 3rd-party, and service pack updates. You can select the specific Microsoft or 3rd-party update, approve it, and schedule or deploy the update to the select computer group or Active Directory® organizational unit (OU).

  2. How security patch management works

    SolarWinds Patch Manager gives you control over the patch process by automating approval processes, shutdowns, and reboots, defining the correct pre- and post-installation environment, and creating comprehensive reports. For example, after rolling out a critical security update, you can quickly run a Percent Failed or Percent Not Installed report to assess the patch status. This enables you to take swift and appropriate action to deal with any failed updates.

    Security patch management in your WSUS/SCCM environment can become more effective and less time-consuming and error-prone with Patch Manager.
