Managing Microsoft Windows Feature Updates. Windows Feature Updates are new versions of Windows, released a few times every year. KACE Cloud allows you to manage the process of installing these updates on managed devices, to help easily install new Windows features and improvements as they become available. Windows Feature Update Configurations are available in the Security Library.
Windows Update Configurations. In addition to Windows Feature Update Configurations, available with a KACE Cloud Secure license, the Security Library also provides access to Windows Update Configurations. These types of updates typically help improve the performance of managed Windows devices and protect them from potential OS-related vulnerabilities. Access to Windows Update Configurations is available through your base KACE Cloud license.
