How does Aiden compare with Patch My PC?

Glad you asked…because we don’t.

Aiden combines a massively scalable managed service for automating even the most complex IT tasks, Desired State Configuration, Natural Language Processing (NLP), a proprietary AI for emulating IT decision making, and a universal integration mechanism for deployment tools. Simply put, we’re fully-managed DevOps for Windows PCs, servers, and VDI.

Patch My PC automatically patches third-party applications for Microsoft SCCM and Intune.
