Patch Manager Plus, our all-around patching solution, offers automated patch deployment for Windows, macOS, and Linux endpoints, along with patching support for 900+ third-party updates across 500+ third party applications. It’s available both on-premises and on the cloud.
Prior to Shoes for Crews finding Patch Manager Plus Cloud, they had been asking all our staff in Europe to connect to the VPN to update Windows and other Microsoft solutions via our WSUS Server, which would mean lots of chasing staff to do so. Then due to the nature of it, with laptops disconnecting to restart once the updates were done, the reporting was always out of date, so hours were spent having to chase to find out the state of the laptops. And as WSUS wouldn’t update non-Microsoft products such as Adobe Reader or Chrome, we would have no oversite as to what state these applications would be in, so we were very vulnerable to exploitations.
