"A great idea - that can only be improved"

What do you like best?

It does do a lot of the tasks automatically, which is good for a user that would like their program to start at boot, check and do what it's built for, then continue running in the background. Basically, install and forget about it - hoping it will do what it's been promised to do...

What do you dislike?

...but the reality is -- it does not. When run - the program takes over 10 minutes to check if my applications are up to date. Not always it does. Sometimes it hangs while looking like it's still working and checking, connecting to server, scanning the system. In reality it waits. For you to kill the process and run again. For me that was too much as I could only get the promised results after 3-5 restarts of secunia.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have scrolled through miles of forum threads and have tried countless registry modifications but could still not get to the functionalities that Secunia once had. The latest versions made me doubt CSI is heading in the right direction with their development.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being a security and vulnerability freak, I do not accept that my Javas and Flashes are outdated. Not only that, I keep my eyes peeled for any new versions of software I use. I select my betas carefully, but like to have a choice. I can trade some of the automated features for more freedom and making informed decisions. There are alternatives to secunia that help keeping your computer secure and up to date. I strongly recommend you check them out and use them!

"It freezes "

What do you like best?

If it works it's point and click easy. However it rarely did.

What do you dislike?

It froze constantly on a pc with 4 gb of RAM and an i5. That doesn't inspire confidence.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It froze a lot and I couldn't recommend it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Patch control.

What Vulnerability Management solution do you use?
