Whether the software vendor provides automatic security updates or not, Secunia PSI 3.0 users will now receive the automatic security patch updates from Secunia as part of the new version.
Automatic Patching - Users receive automatic updates for all software supported by the application. Previously Secunia only provided automatic updates for vendors that made automatic updates available.
Program Ignore Rules - Users have the ability to ignore updates to a particular program by creating ignore rules. This can, for example, be relevant if a user has an application that depends on an older version of another program or plug-in. Users may reverse this selection at any time. Users also have the ability to view the file location and version number of an installed program.
History - Reports about the updates installed and scans conducted can be accessed at any time through the history feature.
Settings - The settings menu allows users to select whether or not to install updates automatically, and which drives are to be scanned.
