SCCM 2007 is the next version of SMS(2003) and can be used for patch management also alongwith software distribution, operating system deployment, network access protection, and hardware and software inventory.
But it is recommended that you deploy the updates through SCUP/WSUS to SCCM. For that you need to setup a WSUS and SCUP along with SCCM server. WSUS is used to publish Microsoft updates to SCCM. For custom updates (from Independent S/W vendors) you need SCUP which will sync with WSUS and then the updates are available at SCCM.
You need to get the catalog for Acrobat/Reader and publish them through SCUP to WSUS. SCCM will sync the updates from WSUS. From SCCM the updates can be deployed to various clients.
