Does anyone have experience with update management software like System Center Essentials, Altiris, LanDesk, etc. ?
I need software similar to the above that will be able to manage clients on a workgroup that is outside of our AD forest. We can open up ports (thats how we got our backup software to work) but otherwise these systems are isolated.
Unfortunately, from what I'm reading, most of these programs require that all nodes be in the network.
I'm new to the IT field, so let me know if I didn't explain this right.
