Patch and Asset Management

I am looking to replace System Center/WSUS/Systems Essentials. I am looking for a effective portal that can handle Microsoft patches and primary third party updates such as Adobe and Java for my computers on the network as well as a place for Asset Mangement of devices.

Any suggestions?

KACE by DELL is pretty good, we run that here and it works well. it handles all MS and third party updates that need to get deployed, this would be a hardware deployment. if you are looking for a software deployment to manage and distribute what you want, you can try patch authority plus by script logic whic i have used as well. it is LDAP driven as well and can find all your machines like WSUS, it can also deploy MS and third party updates (Java, Adobe etc..)

I inherited a SCCM environment that replaced Lumension's PatchLink product (which now looks like it is under a different name).  You may want to take a look into them.
