What is the best patch management software for identifying Security Vulnerabilities, etc? I used gfi, but it won't work. Any others?

Hi -

Have you ever used Secunia PSI ??

It will usually tell you when a patch is needed for many programs -
I prefer Version 2 although there is an updated Version 3 available.

 

Is this what you are asking for ?? If not, please be more specific -

 

Thank You -

Hi -

Are we talking about a single (or 2 - 3) home computer(s) or is this a business setup ??

I am not exactly sure of the program that you want ..

Your Antivirus, and similar programs should update themselves, so what programs do you mean ??

 

Thank You -

For businesses and organisations, there are many options.
