KACE Product Support Question

Can I patch Linux using the KACE Systems Management Appliance?

I am new to KACE and have found the documentation stating that you can patch windows and mac.  So, I assume that that is it, but I am hoping that I can also use it to patch Linux.

For those curious this question, there are options for patching Linux distributions using KACE SMA (aka K1000). The videos below highlight how patching can be accomplished along with using the Lynis Security tool to audit Linux systems.

  • KACE Linux Patching

  • KACE Lynis Security Scan

I just found my own answer at the following url that it does not support Linux devices: http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/understanding-patching-and-its-best-practices

Does anyone have a recommendation for patching Linux devices if you are using KACE for all of your Windows devices?  A Linux plugin would be my favorite answer.  :)
