Patch Management

What are Patch Management and Patch Management policies?

Datto RMM Patch Management allows you to both control and automate the deployment of patches to your Windows devices. The main objective of Patch Management is to create a consistently configured environment that is secure against known vulnerabilities in the operating system.

Patch Management is controlled in accordance with a device's patch status through policies at the global and site levels. Individual patch installations can be configured at the device level to permit exclusions or tolerances for individual patches without needing to alter entire policies.

IMPORTANT  Only Windows Managed Agents support Patch Management. Refer to Managed and OnDemand Agents.

NOTE  Patch Management support for macOS devices is available via the ComStore component Install Updates with SUPER [MAC]. For more information, refer to macOS Patch Management.
