WSUS does not push. The client connects and checks what updates are available for it. It then downloads and installs the updates based on the configured update schedule or based on the package deadline setting.

If you as the WSUS administrator approve the update the client will install it on the above referenced schedule. Shavlick/Altiris are ....
