SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- RSA Conference 2010 -- Secunia here today announced a new free service for consumers that automatically checks for and patches their third-party applications when they boot up their Windows machines.
The goal is to pull all third-party application updates into one simple step, rather than piecemeal, so the end user doesn't have to decide whether to install an update or to handle them manually, according to Secunia. The free service is based on technology in its recently announced simplified patch management tool for enterprises that combines its Corporate Software Inspector with Microsoft's Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). The enterprise offering is currently in beta in more than 1,000 enterprises, says Niels Henrik Rasmussen, CEO of Secunia.
