Does software exist that would make it easy to distribute software updates for a variety of programs over LAN?
My job involves supporting numerous low-bandwidth offices with very expensive internet but we still are extremely interested in having security updates required by our users. These offices have at most ten computers in each, usually five to eight. What would make sense to me is to mirror updates for specific software; Microsoft products, Firefox, Chrome, to one computer in each office and have other computers download from that one.
I can't imagine I'm the first person who's run into the need to keep offices up to date in Sub-Saharan Africa, is anybody aware of software that will allow me to do what I talked about above or perhaps another option?
Unfortunately, implementing classic server-centric windows networks is not an option. We don't have anybody on the ground to maintain these offices, all of my work is remote and remotely managing MS Domain servers without local technicians seems like it's asking for trouble.
