In a recent academic paper “A survey on vulnerability assessment tools and databases for cloud-based web applications” released in ScienceDirect by 4 reseachers and associate Professors at the Computer Science Department, University of Crete and collaborating researcher at the Institute of Computer Science (ICS), Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH).
These past few months have been very productive. We have progressed on several tasks all related and focused on our sole objective to enrich our vulnerability intelligence database. And the strenght of our solution comes from the simplicity in which we have turned the complexity of large vulnerability data collection, classification and aggregation into the easy-to-use feed.
As I announced in the previous newsletter, we have undertaken several works to make the database as complete as possible however the universes decided otherwise.
So the whole team was focused to enhance our CPEs platform structure in such way to align with the newest NVD configuration. This took a little time to review the database schema, update our engine to reflect the changes and do all the tests.
Hopefully by the end of this month, we will submit another update with several new datasources additions.
As I announced in the previous newsletter, we have undertaken several works to make the database as complete as possible while concealing the complexity of the process. By the way, that’s the very reason we’ve gained new happy customers. They were seduced by the richness of our data and ease of use.
Another year has just come to an end and we are grateful to you we have customers and users like you who are a pleasure to deal with.
This newsletter will be short and will not detail the features added in December 2018. We will do it in January. Similarly, I would not do a retrospective on the accomplishments realized during 2018 and they were numerous. However, we will focus on the things we will do today.
