Patch Tuesday implementation
Deploy lets you implement Patch Tuesday methodology by providing granular category-level control of update behavior. Critical and Security updates can be set to be automatically approved and will update as they're released, while Upgrades, Feature Packs and Service Packs can be frozen until you're ready for your monthly or quarterly update cycle.
Defer and Approve before Production Deployment
Deployment of patches in a test group lets you customize before they are rolled out to the entire network. This makes the deployment error-free and stable. When you have a team of system administrators, you can ensure that the patches tested by the team are directly approved for deployment, providing administrators more time for other critical tasks.
The pending updates grid in the Windows Updates dashboard gives you a bird's-eye view of missing patches in your network. This grid auto-updates, however, a manual refresh can be triggered to instantly discover new critical updates that might render your environment vulnerable.
Timely Definition Updates
Definition updates are crucial for enterprises that rely on Windows Defender to protect their computers from attacks. With definition updates being released frequently, automating definition updates can help avoid possible mishaps. Deploy can automate this process by enabling pre-approved installation of the Definition and Security Updates categories
