SMS 2.0 together with SUIT and SMS 2003 together with SUIT also use the Microsoft Office Inventory Tool to detect the required security updates for Microsoft Office programs such as Microsoft Word.

SMS 2003 customers can also use ITMU to detect and deploy security updates. ITMU uses technology from Microsoft Updates. For more information about ITMU, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
