I am looking for recommendations for both a backup software for an organization as well as Patch Management software. Can you offer any good suggestions for this?

    Personally I think the Best Patch Mnagement Software is Shavlik.

    They originally created the hfnetchk for Microsoft for patch management.

    For Backup it has to be the all time favourite Symantec Backup Exec
