ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

Cross-platform Patch Management for all sizes of enterprises

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 550 third party applications. Patch Manager Plus automates scanning of computers, identifies vulnerabilities and the system health of machines, detects missing patches, allows testing of patches before deployment to check the 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, 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 notification, 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 reboot, 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 cloud, allows small and medium businesses to go about their business with minimal investments in infrastructure and maintenance. Patch management on cloud also means the database of latest patches are 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 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.

    Great experience. Just awesome support that is very responsive and helpful.

    Pros

    The ease of patching is simplified with this tool. It makes it so much easier to manage and easy to deploy. I really enjoy this application and though I am still evaluating this product, I feel this is the solution for us and I look forward to making this our solution for patching.

    Cons

    I guess the only con would be that the management interface could be a little better. But that is about it.

    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.

    Don't Delay, Use Patch Manager Plus

    Reviewed on 07/01/2021

    Pros

    While we are an SCCM shop, the use of Patch Manager Plus is amazing. It is easy to use from reporting to pushing patches, querying workstations, and setting up automated deployment rules. This tool has helped us "set it and forgot it" as it just runs (at least for the workstations that can be managed that way). ManageEngine is always looking to better their products and that is what I like about them.

    Cons

    I feel the on-premises Patch Manager Plus environment runs a little slow from a web server and SQL connection. While both servers have plenty of power, just seems the software should respond quicker. This is why we are moving to Patch Manager Plus in the cloud as it is super fast.

    Positive so far, currently undergoing a trial but will be paying for the end product at the end. Take out their 30 day trial and see what you think, there's no harm in testing

    Pros

    Fairly easy agent deployment, also like the test & approve patches section and the fact that the patch deployment supports a much wider range of apps than just using WSUS / Intune alone

    Cons

    Haven't come across many downsides yet. For some of our team, they found it difficult to get to grips with policy administration because it can be very granular. Personally, I like this feature but it may not be suited to all (i.e. the "set and forget" crowd)
