Launch of Secunia's New Personal Software Inspector Takes Private Computer Security to the Next Level

15:00 CET, 27th February 2012 By Secunia.

Copenhagen, Denmark, 27th February 2012 - PC users will now be able to keep their software more secure with the launch today of the latest version of the Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) from Secunia, the leading provider of IT security solutions that help businesses and private individuals manage and control vulnerability threats. Comprehensive and automatic patching of software and a dramatically simplified user interface are among the new features of the Secunia PSI 3.0, which will help reduce the chore of keeping software programs secure and up-to-date. The new version of this free software offers extended automatic patching using the Secunia Package System (SPS), thereby removing the dependency on vendors providing silent installers.

The Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) is a free security scanner aimed at home computer users. The Secunia PSI 3.0 will significantly reduce the number of programs that users need to update manually to stay secure. It automatically detects insecure programs - from all software vendors, not just those from Microsoft - that need updating. The Secunia PSI then downloads the required security updates and installs them without any effort from the user, making it much easier to maintain a secure PC. In addition to providing extended automatic security updates, the new version offers a redesigned interface to make it dramatically simpler and extremely intuitive to use.

Summary of Features:

  • Extended automatic patching using the Secunia Package System (SPS), removing the dependency on vendors providing silent installers
  • New and dramatically simplified user interface
  • Non-intrusive authenticated vulnerability and patch scanning
  • Auto-update of programs
  • Covers programs and plug-ins from thousands of vendors
  • Unprecedented accuracy
  • Reports security status for each

Thomas Kristensen, Chief Security Officer, Secunia, said, “Though some of the larger software vendors have begun to provide automatic update mechanisms, we still see all too many users ignoring the update requests. With the Secunia PSI 3.0 we have included silent auto-updates for as many programs as possible, because we have learned that the users do not want to be interrupted in order to accept and update when they are trying to work.”

He continued, “The goal with the development of the new Secunia PSI 3.0 is to be able to help all users over time almost completely eliminate the update burden, by automatically installing all security-related updates for common end-user programs. Secunia’s mission is to make PCs worldwide safer. With the release of the Secunia PSI 3.0 we are aiming to make the Secunia PSI 3.0 the only tool that users need to keep all their software up-to-date. We want to encourage as many people as possible to download the beta version of the Secunia PSI 3.0 and give us their feedback – it’s safe, fast, simple and free.”

Morten Stengaard, Director, Product Management and Quality Assurance, Secunia, said, "While the Secunia PSI has as many as 4.8 million security aware users, we still have some way to go to fulfil our goal of helping all users worldwide secure their PCs through timely patching. This is what we want to change with the PSI 3.0."

The Secunia PSI 3.0 is currently in beta, which is being made available to allow testing and evaluation by the public, Secunia customers, and the community prior to the final product release in June 2012.

The Secunia PSI 3.0 (beta) can be downloaded from Secunia’s website now at Secunia.com/PSI.
