There has been patches that were missed & lapses in patching timely for non-Windows
platforms.   I noticed, Wintel was quite up to the mark on patching & I reckon this is
due patch management automation using WSUS : patches (for both functional fixes
as well as security patches) are downloaded early.

Q1:
I heard Redhat Satellite (for patching automation like WSUS) can be used on Solaris
besides Linux.  Is there any equiv products for AIX & Cisco devices (routers, switches)?

Q2:
Does WSUS assess if particular MS patch is relevant or applicable to each server/endpoint
prior to deployment?  I mean if a software, eg, MS Access is running on that server/end-
point, then only patches for MS Access will be deployed to that server & checks the version
of the MS Access is applicable for the patches that are released
