For IT administrators, efficiently managing and updating software on the numerous desktop computers in their organization is a steep challenge. Technology continues to evolve at a fast pace, and online security threats are impacting how organizations do business worldwide. IT departments need to digitally transform how they deploy software updates to stay ahead of the changing nature of technology and security, while at the same time, maintain the stability and efficiency of their own network infrastructure.

Today, the Adobe Update Server Setup Tool (AUSST) and Remote Update Manager (RUM) for Adobe Acrobat DC and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC are available to help IT organizations with limited resources completely control their update management process, so they can focus on higher priority projects.

AUSST enables IT managers to set up a secure, internal update server that all the organization’s client machines can automatically check for products and updates. IT departments can choose when to roll out these updates securely, without having to rely on external servers. With RUM, IT administrators can remotely invoke the Adobe Update Manager and install updates across all machines with administrative privileges. They no longer need to log in to each machine to install updates.

Imagine that your organization has employees throughout the world. You want to make sure all computers have the latest Acrobat Reader DC and Acrobat DC features and security updates. It’ll be too expensive and too time consuming to update each machine. AUSST built into your internal server allows you to decide when to roll out those product updates securely, and RUM is set up to invoke the Adobe Update Manager to install future Acrobat updates to those machines. It means fewer machines to manage manually, improved protection against security vulnerabilities, and your employees have the latest Acrobat capabilities they need to do what matters most.

IT administrators and managers can learn more about the Adobe Update Server Setup Tool and Remote Update Manager for Adobe Acrobat DC and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC through our Enterprise Administration Guide as well as the support pages for AUSST and RUM.
