ManageEngine Leverages Microsoft SCCM to Patch Third-Party Applications

New Patch Connect Plus Uses Existing SCCM Infrastructure to Patch More Than 250 Non-Microsoft Applications

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates and PLEASANTON, Calif. - Oct. 18, 2016 - 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, and a free trial can be downloaded at https://www.manageengine.com/sccm-third-party-patch-management/download.html.

ManageEngine will be exhibiting Patch Connect Plus and the rest of its IT 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.

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."
