WAM is a complete software solution that was created specifically to automate the time-consuming task of WSUS maintenance. This easy-to-use (and affordable) software runs in the background, automatically maintaining WSUS daily, allowing you to focus on other tasks.

How WAM Works

Our software is well-thought-out and once installed will:

  • Decline multiple types of updates
  • Remove obsolete updates
  • Compress update revisions
  • Clean synchronization logs
  • Index the WSUS database
  • Run the Server Cleanup Wizard (SCW)

After the software has completed it’s daily run, you’ll be emailed a report to review. WAM also helps clear up space, removing bloatware that can cause slow-downs and errors. If you ever have any issues, there’s prompt on-line support with all active licenses.

Quick Facts About WAM

  • Yearly licenses are extremely affordable for all businesses, costing only $90 USD (See how to license WAM).
  • Licenses can be purchased online, with a credit card or Bitcoin, and can be auto-renewed for your convenience. 
  • Easy-to-follow installation with pre-configured settings (Blue Option) or tailor the software to fit your specific needs (Red Option).
  • On most new systems, it takes under 72 hours for the FirstRun of WAM to complete; however, it’s completely normal for it to take days or even weeks.
