Developing secure, high-quality software is a top priority at Rocket. To ensure we meet top standards in these categories, we adhere to standards set by some of the leading software scans such as Synopsys Black Duck, Polaris, and VeraCode with each release. Rocket acquired the Zumasys product portfolio on Oct 14, 2021. Starting with the jBASE (5.8.6) release these scans are now integrated into the release process. Zumasys did not conform to the same security and quality practices hence any release prior to 5.8.6 does not align with Rocket’s standards. We highly recommend upgrading to jBASE 5.8.6 or 5.9.0 at your earliest convenience to ensure your organization has the most secure software.
