Use prtg to push software updates




Can we use PRTG as a centralized tool to monitor installed software updates in all connected elements ( servers , workstations OS , other network elements that does not have Windows operating system such as Cisco switch ) ?

Can we also use PRTG to push these software updates to all network elements above ?

If yes what are the requirements for both monitoring the installed updates and push siftware updates please ?

We can only monitor Windows Updates at this time. We do not have the capabilities to monitor software or OS versions on non-Windows devices.

We do not have the ability to push updates from PRTG either.
