Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) is a software update service from Microsoft for the Windows operating system, as well as other Microsoft products. It allows administrators to approve or decline updates before they are distributed to clients, and to select which updates are applicable to specific groups of computers.
Windows Server Update Service (WSUS) requires significant on-premises infrastructure, workarounds for remote workers, and complex implementations which increase costs and leave vulnerabilities that could be exploited.
With no complex infrastructure to manage and a modern, intuitive workflow, NinjaOne simplifies patch management, improves patch compliance, reduces time spent on patching, and enables multi-OS patch management from a single console.
Additionally, WSUS patch management does not offer support for operating systems outside of the Windows ecosystem, such as Linux or MacOS unlike NinjaOne.
