How Does Heimdal™ Patch My Vulnerable Software?

Thor monitors and automatically updates a varied range of software applications.

The patches are downloaded directly from the official servers and we only add special codes to install the patches silently and at the correct time.

Thor will never close a running application or automatically reboot the PC after the updates have been installed.

Thor will never request permissions or show UAC (User Account Control) pop-ups, even if the UAC (User Account Control) is enabled. This is part of the silent installation process.

The applications included and monitored in the Patch & Asset Management are selected based on the following criteria:

  • One or more versions contain vulnerabilities, which are corrected in updated versions
  • Vulnerabilities pose a security risk and are therefore actively used by cybercriminals.
