Patch management tool comparisons
Filed under: News, Rants
In this month's IT pro there is a patch program comparison... now I can't talk about other products....but I can talk about the one I personally own and the chart says that Shavlik doesn't support uninstalls and rolling back patches but I've got 126.96.36.199 [Which according to my machine is the latest version] and there's patches that I can roll back....not that I want to go ripping patches off my production server mind you on a Friday night just to prove the author wrong... [I do have a BIT more of a life than that] but I do have the option to do it. I have tested it at home though. Also, I know that they patch ISA server and Linux as well. So if those items are wrong, the best thing to do is do your own homework.
Might want to do your own due diligence regarding this table. But, it is a nice chart though of all the vendors in this space to get you started.
