with Patch Manager


Fully functional for 30 days

With an easy-to-use patch management tool, you can get a step-by-step walkthrough of the process for installing and preparing to patch all Windows servers and workstations in your IT environment. Patch management offers a flexible and scalable platform that meets the needs of small, centralized companies, and large enterprises with distributed systems. You can easily install, deploy, and begin updating patches to all your systems and workstations.

  1. Gain Control Over Patching Windows Servers & Workstations

    SolarWinds® Patch Manager integrates with WSUS and Microsoft update agent, and automatically updates Windows patches based on custom schedules. In addition, you can create different patching schedules for different business groups within the organization per custom requirements. Proactively identify which servers and workstations need to be patched and build patch deployment packages. You can control and schedule software patching for target nodes based on operating systems, IP range, or any custom grouping or individual selections.

    Simplify software patching and reporting for both Microsoft and third-party applications across tens of thousands of servers and workstations—physical, virtual, online & offline systems, and virtual machines. The software patch management tool from SolarWinds simplifies many steps during the patching process, from research, scheduling, deployment, reporting, and more.

  2. Simplify Third-Party Software Patch Management

    Create before and after deployment package scenarios to ensure complicated patches such as Oracle® Java®, deploy successfully without any complicated scripts. Easily build and designate specific actions to occur before or after package deployment to ensure that your patches get installed and deployed per your schedule. For example, having a set of pre- and post-deployment scenarios, such as starting & stopping services, running custom scripts, and dynamically detecting applications that require frequent updates, etc. are all dependent on server or workstation utilization.

    Simplify patching of custom software and other applications by easily creating custom packages—without any complex scripting involved.
