I have a fleet of about 450 Macintosh. All my users are non-admins.
(Well, with the exception of two teachers that teach programming.)

I have to manually keep track of Flash, Silverlight and Java critical updates, meaning I usually have to monitor my own machine to detect an update.

This is error prone and obviously will not work if my computer does not resemble some or all of the fleet.

Is anyone aware of a service that can be subscribed to, or an RSS feed, or anything? I need a multi vendor solution.

BTW it does occur to me that FileWave should do this for it's users.
C'mon guys...whaddayahsay?

You solve two of the most critical by going to www.filewave.com/index.php?option=com_ku...1791&Itemid=246#2532
Biggest problem with 3rd party vendors is that they have separate solutions. AutoPkgr solves a few of them and has a plugin for FileWave.
