Plan Your Maintenance Works

Install Windows Updates to Remote PCs

Deploy multiple updates from a centralized location. How it works? As simple as it sounds, check the endpoints where you want to push the updates and select "Deploy Update". Action1 takes care of your managed endpoints even if they aren`t connected to a corporate LAN. You can be sure patches will be deployed to all devices including computers of remote or traveling employees. If some endpoints are offline at the moment, Action1 will retry installation later.

Orchestrate Patch Management Workflows

Tailor Action1 to your IT workflows. Do you need to review and approve updates before delivering them? Not a problem! Mark pending updates as approved or declined and then choose which to launch. Go beyond that and automate your deployment routines. Choose a delivery schedule, specify days when the updates will be distributed and customize time slots to ensure updates don`t disturb your colleagues.

Orchestrate Patch Management Workflows

Reduce Load on Your Network

Even if you force several updates on 1,000 endpoints at once, you won`t experience any internet bandwidth issues. Action1 orchestrates the procedure in a smart way. The endpoints won`t download all updates at the same time. Action1 has designed a unique algorithm that speeds up KB download while keeping the network load to a minimum.

Frequently Asked Questions



1. How do I check what Windows updates are missing on a computer?
On a local workstation, navigate to "Control Panel/System and Security/Windows Update". There you will see pending updates and can push their deployment. On remote PCs, you can rely on command-line tools such as WMI or try out a patch manager such as Action1.

2. Should I install Windows updates?
Absolutely. Windows updates help protect your systems as well as enhance its operability.

3. How does Windows Update work?
Depending on a local computer settings, Windows Update downloads and prompts you to install new hotfixes and KBs. Locally, you can check installed and pending updates in the "System and Security" center.

4. Can Action1 roll out Windows security updates on remote PCs?
Action1 pushes security updates to remote workstations and servers. If the endpoint is offline, Action1 will attempt to roll out the hotfix later. On top of that, Action1 provides you with installation statistics.
