"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

yes, it is called VMware Update Manager, as part of the VCenter Server now.
https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vum_pubs.html

As for the hardening VMware environment, this is the guide that I use:
https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.5/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-652-security-guide.pdf

Hope that helps.
