I understand that all environments are different. However, I was wondering what most of you use to patch windows, third-party, VMware, etc.
My company evaluated a few applications: Ivanti Security Controls( formerly Patching for Windows), Solarwinds, Connectwise.
So far Ivanti is our top contender because it can patch esx hosts, VM templates, CVE lists, generates decent reports. Yet, it has a few shortcomings we didn't like. One was that there is no web-based console. We would need to leverage terminal services on a server for multiple admins to connect. Also, it doesn't have role-based administration groups.
I understand that all solutions will come with caveats. Any input will be appreciated.
