I manage 3 servers and ~100 workstations across 3 small sites. I use WSUS to keep Microsoft software up to date but I need a (semi-automatic) means to ensure that Adobe Reader and Flash Player and other typical office software is updated on a regular basis. I have looked at using Software Installation GPOs but have had limited success. I need something robust to relieve me from what is otherwise a never ending and time consuming manual task i.e. periodically manually updating software on clients across 3 geographically distant offices. The environment is Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard servers with a combination of Windows XP and 7 clients.
What is the best method for deploying and keeping non-Microsoft software up to date?
Appreciate any suggestions.
(wasn't sure where best to put this question... this is best guess)
