Pros: Patch Manager has been a critical part of our network management. We are able to keep all of our third party applications up to date, where we used to have to rely on our users to allow the updates to run. Patch Manager has also allowed us to remove Admin rights from our end users.

Cons: Patch Manager can be a bit difficult to use at first. We had to rely heavily on the administrator guide to get started. Make sure you can devote time to following the procedures in the manual.

Pros: I have been using this software for over 4 years and every year it get's better and better. Patch updating is so simple, that all you do is setup once and it automatically adapts to roles for any other device you add onto your console.

Cons: Every once in a while some devices, loose connection or is mis-configured, but after a few tweaks your back to patching as usual. Which is setup up and monitor if devices are patching.

Overall: It's the best way for IT Administrator's to start moving to cloud.

Pros: This software takes WSUS and dominates it, that is the best way I can explain it. The reports you can get are accurate and amazing. This is truly a magical patch management software

Cons: I wish that it could be easier for some newer feature updates to be updated on the actual software itself perhaps a way for it to "check-in" and update directly to solarwinds through an optional interface

Pros: allows for non windows applications to be patched and installed with Windows updates WSUS. It simplifies the update interface but still keeps true to WSUS

Cons: It was harder to install and configure correctly. Once it was done its a wonderful tool but can be a challenge to install the first time.

Pros: Support at solarwinds is not over seas, very nice to explain issues and not have to repeat yourself three times. The user cookbooks are very well done, and make it easy to get up and going with relative ease.

Cons: The cost is a major factor here, there are some free solutions out there but you just dont get the support SolarWinds has.

Comments: We've had issues with Microsoft WSUS by itself. Overlaying Solar Winds Patch Manager onto our WSUS server has really helped with our server patching.
