I'm quite a fan of SUMO - I used the free version for some time but now use the pay version, IMHO it's worth every penny, I check it every couple of days & most of the time it's accurate. The rare time it's picked a beta up I inform them & I get a 'fixed' mail back. I've actually tried all updater(s) & I have found at the risk of sounding like I've been bribed love SUM - Also I find it has the largest software database I've found.
I prefer semi-automatic updates. SUMo satisfies that for me. Often when SUMo shows an available update for a program that has a builtin updater (for example, Evernote), I'll use SUMo to launch the program (ex., Evernote) and run its internal updater. Otherwise, I'll use the vendor's download site linked by SUMo to pull the current update.Thank you very much !
May I know to key reason for which you consider SUMo as a better product to keep your system up to date and safe ?

Any good large scale endpoint like patch management software as a freeware/open-source?SUMo fills a unique gap for me.
I have a number of folders with loads of portable programs. I include the folders I want and SUMo will let me know if there are any updates.
PatchMyPC is very neat - use that also, but does not have that same coverage.
Great at updating installed programs though.
Kyle (Sumo) provides excellent support on the Sumo thread at Wilders, usually if some one reports a bug its fixed within hours. I'm sure he could or does, provide the same here.
