Integrate patching for third-party applications

Integrate patching for third-party applications

Third-party application patching can be labor-intensive. With SCCM, patching that is not via Microsoft is limited by using System Center Updates Publisher (SCUP) and is only available for cataloged patches. By using SolarWinds Patch Manager (PM), you eliminate the need to use SCUP and extend the capabilities of SCCM to integrate with dozens of supported apps, including Oracle Java, Adobe Reader, and more. PM serves pre-built, tested, and ready-to-deploy packages. You can monitor the accessibility of new patches and integrate them with your schedule.

Address security vulnerabilities

Address security vulnerabilities

Businesses of all sizes need a patching plan that minimizes risk. That means looking beyond Windows apps for options that automatically protect third-party applications and virtual machines — common targets for hackers. The SolarWinds SCCM alternative lets you extend Microsoft WSUS security patching to close these gaps. PM even reaches offline and powered-off devices by using Wake-on LAN to boot target systems. View the status of endpoints managed by SCCM on a single dashboard and set pop-up alerts to catch new patches announced by vendors.

Demonstrate compliance with reporting tools

Demonstrate compliance with reporting tools

Companies must be able to prove compliance to auditors, and that requires in-depth visibility into their patch status. The SolarWinds SCCM alternative for small business and enterprise provides built-in report templates that facilitate fast, easy reporting. Admins can also create custom templates and design-specific reports. While SCCM reporting requires knowledge of SQL programming and the use of SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), Patch Manager provides granular reporting control without requiring SQL programming or scripting.

Achieve management visibility

Achieve management visibility

Gain better visibility into IT inventory. SCCM only provides visibility into System Center Essentials (SCE) environments that use WSUS natively, and requires the Extended Inventory collection tool for additional inventory. PM augments SCCM capabilities to keep track of Microsoft and third-party applications, hardware inventory, disk space, and other critical metrics. Use a default, auto-updated inventory or create a custom template. Stay on top of scheduled and upcoming updates using an automatic list of apps with labels like “critical,” “security,” and “third-party.”

Gain granular, on-demand control

Gain granular, on-demand control

Turn your SCCM environment into a powerful patch management solution. While SCCM does not allow for on-demand patching, Patch Manager offers admins crucial management capabilities. This SCCM alternative for small business and enterprise lets you simplify notifications, synchronization, deployment, and more. Unlike SCCM, the PM dashboard can filter views of your available updates and IT environment. While SCCM allows custom packages via SCUP, PM includes a Package Creation Wizard for streamlined custom patching, including before-and-after deployment scenarios.

View update notifications

View update notifications

With Patch Manager, admins can receive update notifications directly on the console or through email. While SCCM does not provide admins with notifications for failed updates, the SolarWinds SCCM alternative automatically flags update issues. The interface provides information within the client log file on why an update failed. Additionally, admins can view the Task History to double-check that update tasks are complete.

Schedule patches to suit your calendar

Schedule patches to suit your calendar

With SCCM, you can perform basic patch scheduling — but can’t be sure whether the target machine will be powered on to receive the update. With SolarWinds SCCM alternative, push patches to suit the company’s schedule based on time zones and the potential network impact associated with mass updates. Rest easy knowing your patches will reach even powered-off devices. PM uses Windows PowerShell for granular control over the update process. Schedule updates according to classifications like “critical,” “rollup,” or “security patches,” — or define actions for individual updates.

Diagnose and remediate client health

SCCM provides some client health data, but with the Patch Manager extension pack for SCCM, you can quickly diagnose and repair issues on Configuration Manager clients throughout both local enterprise network and cloud infrastructure, all through a single interface. This tool diagnoses and repairs Windows Update Agents and Windows Management Instrumentation on all managed clients, to help ensure that updates install successfully and on schedule.

Streamlined patch management requires a robust SCCM alternative
What is an SCCM alternative?
definition
An SCCM alternative for small business or enterprise use is a tool that extends the patch management capabilities of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). This product augments the capabilities of SCCM, a systems management software used for deploying applications and helping secure devices across an enterprise. Systems administrators can use an SCCM alternative to achieve greater control during patch management by leveraging more granular scheduling options, integrated third-party patching, improved privacy, and other features.
