    Ivanti Patch Manager Solution for Monthly Windows 10 Delta Updates



    The Ivanti patch manager content provides a solution for monthly Windows 10 updates. This solution enables customers to apply the Windows 10 delta updates or the cumulative updates to the Windows 10 clients as detected on the clients. By determining if a delta update can be applied, network bandwidth consumption can be reduced.




    This current solution supports the following clients:

    • Windows 10 Version 1607
    • Windows 10 Version 1703




    1. 1. Ivanti creates one vulnerability definition for the monthly Windows 10 cumulative and delta patches. The definition will include four detection rules:


    • two rules are for Windows 10 cumulative update patches (x86 and x64)
    • two rules are for Windows 10 delta patches (x86 and x64)
