Alternatives To Kace K1000 Patching: GFI LanGuard, etc
Good Day Everyone,
I would like to know what are some good Windows, Linux, and Unix patching systems out there besides Dell Kace K1000. I have had nothing but issues from patching using Dell Kace K1000. Sometimes systems take over 3 hours to patch. Some laptop systems were slow and usable after patching with Dell Kace.
Can anyone suggest better products? How is GLI LanGuard?
Desktop Authority worked real well and Dell has actually revived Desktop Authority.
Anyhow just not happy about Kace patching!!!!!!

We currently use GFI LanGuard for our patching. It does what it says it does, but its not flashy. There is no way to get gfi to automatically patch the system till its up to date(unless getting it done over a span of a few days is fine). You have to manually refresh the information and then manually remediate to get it up to date in a day. It is my understanding the KACE will patch, reboot and patch again until it's all patched?? GFI gets the job done, but probably just like all things, it could be better. I think i'd rather have one product do many things with good reporting, than have multiple products doing different things with individual reporting.
