Update-Manager

Recommended Posts

If any of you are familiar with Ninite they now have a service called Ninite Pro that will manage the installation and patching for a large portion of the apps and things on your computer.

 

That same functionality in this product would be excellent.

Hello orion7_11,

 

thank you for this post.

It is very interesting to see how Ninite Pro (https://ninite.com/pro) manages apps via the browser.

Here Piriform can learn a lot for CCleaner Cloud.

 

Ninite only supports some apps (about 50).

I am preferring SUMo (http://www.kcsoftwares.com/?sumo) that supports more than 90.000 apps.

And SUMo really works best (although it has not the best UI), I keep testing some update managers and SUMo really works best.

 

I really would love to have such a feature in CCleaner Cloud (would be a reason to buy it).

But I fear that Piriform will not implement this feature.

 

After a re-install of Windows I did not install CCleaner Cloud yet.

There are not many benefits in comparison to CCleaner Desktop (although I have 3 computers) so it is not worth buying it.

Meantime I removed my computer from CCleaner Cloud after a re-install of Windows.

But with the Update Manager feature I will definitely buy a 3 computer license!

The current vulnerabilities in processors (Spectre and Meltdown) show how vulnerable our systems are.
All security experts say, that it is very important that users keep their system up to date (installed applications and hardware drivers).
This is especially important for the web browsers.
 
So it would be really cool when CCleaner Cloud helps me keeping my installed applications and also my drivers up to date.
It also would be cool when CCleaner Cloud would inform me about BIOS updates (but this could be complicate).

Hello,

I read that the Secunia PSI will no longer be available from April 20, 2018.
This tool informed me about the risk (threat-level) of my outdated software.

Here is the official forum posting:
https://secuniaresearch.flexerasoftware.com/community/forum/thread/show/16037/psi_end_of_life

So this is your chance to fill up this lack of an usable update manager!

Is very frustrating when I write many (hopefully good) ideas in this posting and never got any reply from an official.
Maybe I get an answer now.

Best regards

OLLI

sorry Olli, but what is your question?

are you suggesting Piriform add a feature to CC that does what Secunia used to do?

Hello,

I suggested in this thread that CCleaner Cloud checks my systems for out-dated applications and warns me.
This is very important because otherwise my system is highly vulnerable.

Now Secunia PSI (a tool that checks if any installed and outdated apps have a known vulnerablility) will end his service.
So I wrote that this is one more argument that CCleaner Cloud also checks for outdated applications:

It is enough when CCleaner Cloud reports that updates are available.
The threat level may come in a later version.
