Configuration Manager users can spend a lot of time researching, installing, creating and publishing packages - sometimes up to 4 hours per patch!  With at least 10 critical 3rd party patches per month, that's at least 40 hours of patching and that's assuming nothing goes wrong. Who has that kind of time?
Patch Manager generally reduces this process to about an hour by providing pre-built and pre-tested packages - all from the Configuration Manager console.  Patch Manager supports common application updates including Oracle® Java, Google® Chrome, Adobe® Reader, Skype® and so on.
Patch Manager's integration with Configuration Manager 2007 was accomplished by pulling client information from the site server for display in the Patch Manager console.  Now, with our latest release, we also have native integration in the 2012 console.  Deploying 3rd party patches with either Configuration Manager 2007 or 2012 is accomplished using the native configuration Manager deployment tools.
When updates are made available, they are immediately synchronized with the Patch Management server and are visible in the Configuration Manager Console.
From the Configuration Manager Console, publishing to the software update point is as simple as selecting the update and click on publish.  Voila!
In addition, to ensure that you can effectively patch your systems, Patch Manager provides a collection of client management and repair tools such as Client Actions, Agent Configuration Utilities and the Computer Explorer.
