What is a WSUS?

Windows Server Update Services, WSUS for short, was planned for deploying the Windows operating system’s updates, but it is widely used for updating other Microsoft products as well. On top of this, you can use the service for 3rd party application updates as well, as we’ve done here with the CSM for WSUS.
