As the first part of a series of performance-focused updates, Lucent Sky AVM 3.6 brings performance and reliability improvements to the mitigation engine. Vulnerability mitigation is up to 20% faster across all supported technology stacks. The algorithm used to calculate confidence score of Instant Fixes was also updated to provide more accurate scoring. Also included were several bug fixes that addressed issues in the previous releases.
Updates in Lucent Sky AVM 3.6 include:
- Performance improvements on the mitigation algorithm - Updates were made to the mitigation algorithm to streamline the remediation process. Users are expected to experience a modest improvement on the vulnerability mitigation performance. The performance improvement will be more visible for complex applications or those with more than several thousand of vulnerabilities.
- More accurate confidence scoring - Since Lucent Sky AVM 2.0, confidence score has been the cornerstone of ensuring Instant Fixes are applied reliably and without impact on application functionalities. In Lucent Sky AVM 3.6, it's been expanded to cover not just each Instant Fix, but all statements related to this Instant Fix. The result of the expansion is statement-level confidence score, an indicator allowing users to more accurately predict the impact of Instant Fixes prior to applying them.
- Numerous bug fixes - Lucent Sky AVM 3.6 resolves several issues in prior releases, including a bug related to the calculation of LOCe and a bug related to incorrect file path in XML reports.
