We use Group Policy to deploy a lot of our applications, especially a lot of the "basics" like Flash Player, Adobe Reader, Firefox, and Chrome. For a lot of these, the updates are security fixes that we would like to deploy ASAP.

Is there a web site or service that provides a simple list of the latest versions of applications like these? I'd like to just get notifications via Email when a vendor updates something.

you've just asked the million dollar question. I think shortly adobe will be intergrated with MS updates the others I'm not sure about. – tony roth Mar 7 '11 at 16:34
@tony: Why do you think this will happen "shortly"? – Sven Mar 7 '11 at 17:11
@SvenW thought I had heard a rumor of this happening could be wrong. – tony roth Mar 7 '11 at 19:27

Have you looked at Shavlik NetChk Protect?

Secunia PSI does this for a lot of popular programs like the ones you listed. It is focused on making sure you are up to date with the latest security fixes from different vendors.
