Microsoft’s New Autopatch Feature to Help Businesses Keep Their Systems Up-to-Date

Microsoft last week announced that it intends to make generally available a feature called Autopatch as part of Windows Enterprise E3 in July 2022.

“This service will keep Windows and Office software on enrolled endpoints up-to-date automatically, at no additional cost,” said Lior Bela, senior product marketing manager at Microsoft, in a post last week.

Windows Autopatch is intended to work with all supported versions of Windows 10, Windows 11, and Windows 365 for Enterprise.

Windows Server OS and Windows 365 for Business are not supported.

“Updates are applied to a small initial set of devices, evaluated, and then graduated to increasingly larger sets, with an evaluation period at each progression,” Microsoft said.

“If an issue is encountered, the Autopatch service can be paused by the customer or the service itself. When applicable, a rollback will be applied or made available,” the company pointed out.
