Installing all updates

Patch Management Solution for Mac also provides the automated rollout jobs that let you install all software updates that match a specific criteria. For example, you can choose to install all available updates, all recommended updates, all updates that do not require a restart, and so on.

To ensure that Mac computers in your environment are always up-to-date, you can configure automated rollout jobs to run on a schedule. For example, you can configure the jobs to run weekly.
