As Bas pointed out, the comparison would really be ZPM to WSUS however
honestly there's no comparison IMO. :-)

WSUS
Pro: It's free
Con: It only patches Windows and Office

ZPM
Pro: It patches around 20 vendors' products (inc. Microsoft), it has patch
policies which offer "set it and forget" patching capability, it can patch
Windows/Mac/Linux, it offers baselining capabilities so that new devices
into the zone receive a minimum set of patches, it's fully integrated into
ZCM meaning it doesn't have to be managed as a completely separate tool,
and lastly it kicks butt.
Con: It's not free.
