Patch Manager Plus for Windows Patch Administration

2018-09-18

PMP has become an essential administrative application which improves security and saves time and energy.

Pros

Automation tools. The 'Automate Patch Deployment' mechanism of the software is instrumental in maintaining secure infrastructure without sinking time into manually managing updates.

Cons

The setup, teardown, migration and maintenance of the software in an on-prem installation using built-in binaries and tools can be clunky and hard to understand.

Good product for a great price!

2018-09-18

Great all around. The program has been out for a while and it very polished. There have been instances where I needed support and was able to get it very quickly, which is very nice.

Pros

It does 3rd party updates which WSUS does not do, so it is a great package.

Cons

I cant think of any deal breakers. The software doesnt constantly need to be updated and seems to be rock solid from my experiences.

Great for Server Patching, workstation patching needs some improvement.

2018-09-21

This has helped us manage our patching, servers have been awesome, end user workstations can use some improvement.

Pros

Great product for patching servers. Solid list of supported products and related patches.

Cons

Workstation patching is not as reliant as server patching. Pending reboot status is listed even after rebooting endpoint.

Inexpensive but Effective

2018-08-02

Pros

It is very easy to set up and once you do, it pretty much runs itself.

Cons

We tried to run it in AWS and had issues with downloading patches. We moved it to an on-premise server and it worked much better.
