The integration of an automated patch engine provides comprehensive coverage and updates for the most prevalent and at-risk third-party applications. With Absolute Manage 6.8, IT administrators can manage operating system patches for Mac and Windows devices, along with a wide range of third-party applications in a fully automated system that detects and downloads missing patches.  Once each update receives administrator approval, Absolute Manage deploys and reports on the status of each patch.
