You could look into setting up a Windows Software Update Server (WSUS). This downloads the updates from Microsoft and you then deploy them locally. I believe WSUS is being/has been superceded by an other more up-to-date arrangement recently but I'm not sure so you might want to check

I used WSUS with great success. I believe it had a web interface as well. You could create groups and allow/deny specific updates. Worked pretty well.

You want to do the same thing for all Linux machines? No idea on that one. Sorry.

on linux there is a central update repository which does central update. its called apt-cacher and you can use it to cache any software installed via apt-get (a package management tool used in debian linux) and stores it locally in the apt-caher should anysystem on the network need same package. it would be downloaded from the apt-cacher instead. the process works smoothly and saves a lots of bandwidth.
