Are you a device administrator responsible for updating Windows on dozens, hundreds, or thousands of PCs? Have you used WSUS, Configuration Manager or Intune? In this show, we'll explain all of the options and for managing Windows Updates from the cloud using Microsoft Endpoint Manager and how it compares to your options in Configuration Manager and WSUS.

Jason Githens from the Windows Management team at Microsoft joins Jeremy Chapman for a full tour of Microsoft Endpoint Manager's Windows Update ring, feature update, and quality update policies. These policies add a layer of control on top of Windows Update for Business Group Policy settings and are part of the foundation for Windows Autopatch. We'll take a look at your options and how to use each of them, along with best practice recommendations.
