Upgrade to 10.0 by 2/1/2020 to ensure continuous operation of your patching functionality.
Dear KACE SMA Customer,
We wanted to make you aware of some enhancements and improvements to patching within the KACE Systems Management Appliance (SMA). The SMA has historically used a 3rd party patch feed to supply patches for both Windows and Mac. Starting with version 10.0 of the SMA (Released in September 2019), we have replaced this feed with the new KACE Patch Catalog.
Thanks to this new catalog, we are able to offer several important improvements to this core feature of the product:
- Patches will be available to you faster than the method used prior to SMA v10.0.
- More publisher/products will be offered than the current patch catalog.
- Endpoint patch detections operates at a significantly improved speed.
- Improved logging to help you track the patching process.
These product changes will make it easier for you to manage your patches by providing timelier patch availability, patch application and a wider catalog of patches to choose from than ever before.
Patching improvements are just one of the reasons to upgrade to SMA 10.0. You can find list of great new additional features towards the bottom of this notification.
