You want to have a look at:

Microsoft Windows Server Update Services

Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) enables information
technology administrators to deploy the latest Microsoft product updates
to computers running the Windows operating system. By using WSUS,
administrators can fully manage the distribution of updates that are
released through Microsoft Update to computers in their network.

Which is used in large organizations to deploy patches with ease.
Requires some AD mumbojumbo of course.

Really the information is out there, google knows, so can you :)
