Native SCCM Plug-in

 

Avoid searching every nook and cranny of the software library for third-party updates.The Native SCCM Plug-in from Patch Connect Plus obtains a list of third-party updates in a separate tab in the SCCM console. It also displays a complete report on client systems to help you easily distinguish which machines are missing patches.

Features of the Native SCCM Plug-in include:

  1. A complete list of third-party updates.

    The Native SCCM plug-in provides information on every available third-party update in its own tab, so you won't have to filter through the complete list of software updates.
  2. Deployment of non-Microsoft applications.

    Facilitate deployment of third-party applications using the Native SCCM Plug-in. This includes scheduling regular scans, getting vulnerability information, and deploying patches to the managed endpoints.
  3. Complete reports on client machines.

    This plug-in provides complete system-based reports on all machines in the network. Users can easily find which endpoints are missing patches.
