ManageEngine, ( the real-time IT
management company, today formally announced Patch Connect Plus, its
software that uses Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager
(SCCM) to manage patches for third-party applications. The new product
eliminates all system vulnerabilities present in the network by using
an organization’s existing SCCM infrastructure to perform updates
required for non-Microsoft applications. Patch Connect Plus is
available immediately.

management and security portfolio at the 36th GITEX Technology Week
being held in Dubai, October 16-20, 2016. ManageEngine is meeting with
customers, partners and attendees at Dubai World Trade Centre, Hall 7,
Stand A7-10.

Patch Connect Plus usage and benefits

In 2016 Trends in Cybersecurity, Microsoft reports that less than 10
percent of publicly-disclosed software vulnerabilities concern its
software, which means over 90 percent of those vulnerabilities involve
non-Microsoft software. Additionally, over 90 percent of attackers use
Adobe Flash Player and Java applications in their attacks, so keeping
those applications updated is crucial to an organization’s security.
While SCCM is widely used, it cannot manage patches of Flash, Java or
any other third-party application.

“Patch Connect Plus lets Microsoft SCCM users completely automate the
management of non-Microsoft updates using their existing
infrastructure and console,” said Mathivanan Venkatachalam, director
of product management for Patch Connect Plus at ManageEngine. “In
turn, users don’t need to set up a new tool, reconfigure their clients
or learn how to use a new product. And the large catalog of supported,
third-party applications will help users combat all system
vulnerabilities and assure security from attackers.”
