with end of September Launch, we made Computer Protection clients available for our customers with the vision that we start with encouraging our new users to start with the new client. Existing users needing profile migration will be upgraded through the channel automatically at a later date in 2018.
We're very proud of the full revamp of architecture and the benefits this brings to our users, but we're by no means done. A major part of revamp of the architecture is our ability to update all levels of the product to respond to the fast-changing threat landscape.
In this thread, we will announce new Computer Protection releases and you can expect to see new ones frequently. Computer Protection clients are updated to the latest version automatically even though not immediately - new installations may see newer version for a period of time than what you have installed.

Computer Protection 17.2 introduces:
There is also a number of fixes and minor improvements in particular in the area of browsing and connection control.It also includes a change that we believe to fix majority of Software Updater related bluescreen problems from compatibility with Microsoft's own update and reboot mechanisms.
PS: Please note that we changed the release numbering from this version onwards. You will see our launch version and this version with the same main release number, and for knowing you have this one see version of Common Component Framework: 3.01.280
Computer Protection 17.3 introduces:
Please note: Client version on the endpoint is reported as 17.3 and in the PSB Portal as 17.2. A fix for delivering the correct information to PSB Portal will be in next release. You can recognize your clients have updated by the component version numbers on Devices Installed Software Category:
Computer Protection 17.4 introduces:
Computer Protection 17.5 introduces:
Computer Protection 17.6 introduces:
Computer Protection 18.1 and Computer Protection Premium 18.1 introduce bug fixes and small improvements. Small feature improvements are in particular in the premium features, DataGuard and Application Control.
As our team is working towards delivering more frequently the value into use in the PSB service as we have it available and well tested, announcing releases is losing some of it's meaning for us. We are however very happy to announce the availability of Computer Protection and Computer Protection Premium 18.2 release.
The 18.2 release brings out a fix on a cycle of crashes we could see from our product monitoring happening on a portion of Win7 computers. The new version is automatically updated silenty, as always.
We've started delivering the Computer Protection and Computer Protection Premium 18.3 release. The release contains work towards next upcoming major features (application control, streamlined installation) that isn't yet visible for the users.
Main user-visible change is fixes in the Software Updater area. A portion of our customers was experiencing Software Updater component crashes, which this version fixes. We've still seen some while diligently testing the version, but tracked it down on the old version failing when new one gets installed.
Computer Protection and Computer Protection Premium 18.4 release is available. This release brings some ransomware protection and browsing protection bug fixes and some UI changes.
