About ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus is a web-based/cloud-based software for complete automated patch management. Patch Manager Plus enables users to deploy patches to Windows, Mac, Linux, and over 850 third-party applications. Patch Manager Plus automates the scanning of computers, identifies vulnerabilities and the system health of machines, detects missing patches, and allows testing of patches before deployment to check compatibility and installation success. Users can choose from a choice of flexible deployment policies to automate patch deployment and also delay the deployment for a certain number of days. Users can also manage compliance using audits, analytics, and patch management reports.

Patch Manager Plus supports patch deployment to heterogeneous endpoints including desktops, laptops, servers, virtual machines and even roaming users. Ready-to-deploy pre-built packages are provided for common non-Microsoft applications, and users can access patches for Adobe applications, multiple web browsers, and a range of other applications through the third-party application catalog. Patches can be tested on a small group of computers before they are deployed across the business, with users able to manually or automatically approve patches following successful tests. Patches can also be declined for specific computer groups, and applications, or based on issues encountered in testing, and all declined patches can be re-added later for deployment.

Custom deployment policies can be created, allowing users to control deployment windows, end-user notifications, reboot policies, and more. Automated scans can be scheduled for vulnerability identification, any missing patches can be downloaded automatically, and patches can be automatically deployed to vulnerable systems. Patch management reports give users insight into vulnerable systems, systems requiring reboots, missing patches awaiting approval, supported patches, and more. Users can also create custom query reports to retrieve information from the Patch Manager database and refine reports using various filters.

Patch Manager Plus, now on the cloud, allows small and medium businesses to go about their business with minimal investments in infrastructure and maintenance. Patch management on the cloud also means the database of the latest patches is always synced, the deployments are light and fast, and there's no downtime while managing the computers.

Patch Manager Plus comes in two editions: Professional and Enterprise and it is completely free for 25 endpoints. For businesses willing to keep their computers patched and up to date, to ensure total security against cyber attacks, Patch Manager Plus will be the best bet, ManageEngine promises.

    Really good. It was very easy to get started and anytime I needed support assistance, they are available via chat in a matter of seconds.

    Pros

    To me what makes this product so great is it does NOT utilize the built in Windows Update service that has been giving us trouble for so long. ME uses their own agent / service. This has made the patching process a lot smoother during our trial. The management console is also super user friendly and very easy to navigate.

    Cons

    it made our patch scheduling for production servers a bit difficult because there is no option to manually click install when ready to start installation. instead we are relying on detailed auto install policies which work for us but this is the biggest limitation I have see thus far.

    Automox and Kaseya VSA

    Reasons for Choosing ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

    SW was an extremely manual process and we were looking for something more automated. Also, having a cloud solution makes patching off network devices such as laptops a lot easier.

    Switched From

    SolarWinds Patch Manager

    Reasons for Switching to ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

    Automox relied on the built in Windows Update service causing many issues from the beginning. Kaseya utilized their own agent like Patch Manager Plus but: 1) they were a lot more expensive 2) the console was not user friendly and was filled with tons of features that we did not have access to.

    The ability to schedule custom jobs for workstations versus servers greatly helps. The custom jobs including being able to use wake-on-lan to update the machines after business hours. We are a small IT staff and I handle all of the infrastructure related tasks including updates. This has greatly reduced the time I spend each week getting updates/patches deployed. After using it for a while there is very little effort needed in getting deployments scheduled.

    Pros

    The ability to download and deploy patches with ease for both Windows and OSX.

    Cons

    It took a little getting used to but that is probably my fault for not reading and going through the demo.

    Alternatives Considered

    Automox and SolarWinds Patch Manager

    Reasons for Choosing ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

    Needed more of a scheduled deployment outside of group policy and a way to update OSX.

    Reasons for Switching to ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

    It met our requirements for Windows, OSX, and WOL. It was also very reasonable priced especially for a nonprofit organization.
