Is this program legit? I saw on a blog, someone recommends it, along with psi secunia and patch my PC.

I see psi secunia gets a lot of good words around the net, but can't find much about heimdal.

Thanks!

Heimdal Free - Heimdal Pro
CSIS Heimdal Security Agent

...takes care of updating your vulnerable Windows programs...Unlike Secunia´s PSI, Heimdal doesn´t want to keep track of all your software, but it´s got a steadily updated list of possible vulnerable software, which can be used to exploit your Windows. Every program that´s on this list, will be periodically checked for updates and if Heimdal finds a new version, it will be installed seamlessly in the background. As it doesn´t keep track of all your software, Heimdal is very ressource friendly and it loads silently in the background at Windows startup.

Everything comes for free, you don´t have to pay anything. However, if you are more concerned about your security, you can upgrade Heimdal to a “Pro” version and if you´re running a business to the “corporate version” which allows you a centralized management of all your Heimdal agents. The Pro-version adds Anti-Malware functionality to Heimdal, enables the behavioral based detection of malware and also adds a DNS based blocking of dangerous web content, preventing traffic to servers which are known to host malicious programs...

I can't speak for everyone but Heimdal appears to do what the vendor claims it does.
