How much time do you spend on WSUS maintenance? Do you put it off because of the time it requires, or do you just dread the monotonous tasks of going through updates? Do you even know that you need to do WSUS maintenance? Did you know that there is an easy way to automate WSUS maintenance?

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.

If you’d like to automate WSUS maintenance,
try WAM for a year and see how much time (and space) you save!
