ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus have this feature which ensures that your devices stay up-to-date with minimal user intervention, enhancing overall security and performance. In my organization, we must submit audit reports, and compliance mandates that all endpoints have up-to-date patches. Thanks to this software, I achieve this requirement with no manual intervention, ensuring seamless compliance during audits.

  • supports patching for a wide range of third-party applications
  • integrates seamlessly with other ManageEngine products and third-party solution
  • provides a dashboard that offers a real-time view of patching status
  • user-friendly interface
additional features of ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus dedicated to third-party patching may not be necessary for proprietary software
  • We rely heavily on third-party applications (e.g., Adobe, Java, browsers) and this software can automate the patching process for these applications, reducing security risks
  • Overall satisfied after buying the product found nothing adverse

We use Patch Manager Plus in an educational environment where finding time to update is hard for teachers. One of the challenges we faced was that teachers would not update their apps during the school day and have outdated software. With Patch Manager Plus, we set up our distribution servers, deployment profiles, and gave teachers specific times of day when their computers would update. This helped solve our problems by allowing devices to update and not hinder the work day.
  • Efficient and kind support.
  • Updating apps with relative ease.
  • Simple to set up distribution servers.
  • More detailed explanations for “why” an update failed.
  • Better MacOS update support.
  • More customizable reports for building technicians.
Patch Manager Plus is a piece of software that does its job well under the correct conditions. This is not always perfect, and sometimes patching fails on a client system. This can be frustrating because there could be a number of reasons "why" a patch failed, but the system does not always tell you that in detail. I have been able to figure out that Patch Manager Plus will not update certain systems if the battery is too low, and the system is not plugged in. While I recognize this as a fault with the system, and NOT Patch Manager Plus. I still believe it would be nice if the software would tell me that on the back end, so that I can troubleshoot better. Overall, as said, Patch Manager Plus does it job perfectly under the correct conditions.
  • Patching
  • Simple for the end user
  • Distribution servers
  • Systems are regularly up-to-date
  • Systems are more secure
  • End users don't like forced reboots, but they are necessary

IT security nowadays has become of primary concern and given our very large number of PCs and Laptops (more than 1400) all connected to LAU’s network and having internet access, we realized that it is of utmost importance to have a solid patching solution. Up until now, we were relying on Microsoft WSUS for updating Microsoft products but over the past several years, it proved to be extremely unreliable and problematic. We tested Microsoft SCCM for the patching role but it also proved to be extremely impractical, unreliable and cumbersome. We did research to find out what are the best patch management (PM) applications on the market, tested 7 different products and found ManageEngine PATCH MANAGER Plus to be the best effective solution for our needs. Now we have an efficient automated solution that keeps our 2000+ PCs, Laptops and servers up to date and safe.
  • Integrates with Active Directory
  • Agent deployment on endpoints
  • It has a lot of very comprehensive rules and queries that can be used to group clients for the division of tasks
  • ManageEngine PATCH MANAGER Plus can patch servers as well as normal operating systems
  • It has a rich user interface that is easy to understand and navigate
  • Supports patching Mac OS and Linux in addition to Windows operating systems
  • Patching based on AD groups. It does not understand AD groups
  • Provide more agent/user options
  • Work with Solaris
If you are managing a very large number of computers, I would say 1000+, the standard patching tools provided by Microsoft will fail to do their job properly. This is where you will benefit from ManageEngine PATCH MANAGER Plus, being agent-based it is fast, easy to manage, and reliable. If you require functionality more than just patching, like security auditing, you have to look elsewhere.
  • Ease of management
  • Ability to handle different operating systems including servers
  • Good integration with Active Directory
  • Ability to handle 3rd party applications
  • The number of vulnerabilities in our infrastructure as reported by Qualys has gone down by 78% since implementing ManageEngine PATCH MANAGER Plus
  • We did not have a single virus outbreak since ManageEngine PATCH MANAGER Plus was implemented
  • After automating patch deployment, it operates standalone and administration time needed is at a minimum
SolarWinds was not selected because it runs on top of SCCM which in itself is problematic and unreliable. We need an application that runs in standalone mode and does not rely on any other application. SolarWinds is also one of the most expensive. Kaseya and GFI LanGuard are overkill as they contain functionality that we do not need or already have. GFI LanGuard for instance does security auditing the same as Qualys that we already have. Kaseya is a full management and automation solution.

We need some tested products for ManageEngine Patch Management and we choose the same. It updated my network very easily. Just create a policy on what to do and the rest will take care of ManageEngine Patch Manager.
  • All the patches are tested before delivered to us.
  • It's on cloud so we does not need to maintain Hardware and Network.
  • It also upgrades the hardware drivers & BIOS. But for BIOS only we use monthly updates no automatic policy just push to target computers.
  • Reporting needs to improve.
  • Support needs to improve. Ex. quick answer or timely answers. 6-8 hrs.
  • No prior information of client version update. They just pushed without intimation.
  • Automatic patching on scheduled time.
  • Ease of use.
  • No complex configuration.
  • Patching is really important for every business.
  • Easy solution to keep your system updated and check the status.
  • Its value for money.
Cloud Based.

We use ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus to assist with third-party application patchings, such as 7Zip, WinSCP, and Putty. The big problem that this software addressed is patching software for users who do not connect to corporate networks for more than 30 days. PatchManager solved that issue for us because it only needs to be connected to the internet.
  • Easy to Use UI.
  • Easy to understand dashboards.
  • Quick and effective support.
  • More customization.
  • The same set of software should be available on both on-prem and cloud.
  • Better reporting features.
Patch Manager is well suited for users that work remotely or away from main sites for long periods of time. It provides the patch administrator access to update the machine without requiring users to come to the head office.

Threat Intelligence
  • Increased insight into applications installed on end user machines.
  • Less time spending creating packages in SCCM.
  • End users do not have to make time to travel to the head office or a corporate network for updates.
Patch Manager Plus does the most basic job of monitoring machines, deploying packages silently, and keeping machines up to date.
The support team at Patch Manager Plus has been awesome. Very responsive and knowledgeable. There are times when there is confusion between different tickets but there is still good service.
