What are the most cost effective tools out there to update Adobe Reader and Flash as well as Java in domain workstations in a small business (40 PC's) automatically? I am already setting up WSUS for MS patching.

The easiest way is to create a GPO (Group policy) allowing java flash and adobe to update in the background. WSUS for all other updates.

Secunia is $2900 a year though. Wouldn't call that affordable either.
