IT Management Software

I operate a small IT firm, yet we are growing.

Was wondering if there is anything out there free/inexpensive that can do things such as the following.

1 - Monitor installed software and/or alert when new software is installed
2 - Monitor what software isn't installed (such as AntiVirus).
3 - Handle rolling out simple software or updating simple software such as Adobe Reader, Java, Adobe Flash
4 - Handle blocking updates such as Java, etc.

I've searched but can't find anything.

I've used GFI Remote Monitoring & Management before, it will do what you are looking for, and is reasonably simple to setup and maintain. It uses an agent for asset reporting and TeamViewer for remote access. Worth calling them for pricing, plus there is a 30-day trial to see if it fits your business. Possibly you could set up for a client to offset the cost for your own business.

I think you should use a complete Software Inventory Management software
look at the both of the software as I think they are free a:
