Patch Management Solution for Windows lets you inventory managed computers to determine the software updates (patches) that they require. The solution then lets you download the required software updates from the software vendor and provides you with the tools to install the software updates. Software updates include but are not limited to security updates, hot fixes, and service packs. Software from vendors such as Microsoft, Adobe, Mozilla, Google, Sun Microsystems, and many others can be patched.
Key features include a software repository that provides comprehensive data on software bulletins, software updates, and inventory rules, such as technical details, severity ratings, and number of executables. The process of populating the information repository from the patch management metadata files can be started after you complete the installation of the solution.
Integration with Notification Server 7.x includes features such as hierarchy and maintenance windows. Hierarchy lets you configure features and settings for a parent Notification Server computer, then pass the settings down to child Notification Server computers.
