Patching solution in Azure

Deep Parikh 1 Reputation point

I have multiple clients servers on Azure. Can anyone point me in the right direction around patching Azure VMs. Currently we're using Azure update management to deploy patches to VMs. Our another on-prem environment already have SCCM based patching solution.

I need to setup new environment on Azure for patching solution but don't want to use Update mgmt.

Need recommendations on alternate solution.
