Open-source software ages badly!

Earlier the version, higher the risk. Latest OSS versions decrease risk.

Lineaje Inherent Risk Levels (IRL) measure the risk in each component and each version of each component in your software.
However, new versions come with challenges too:

  • Incompatible Upgrades: Applying incompatible patches breaks co-operating components causing as much as 40% overhead in development cycles.
  • Transitive Upgrades: Even independent patches applied to deep transitive dependencies break dependencies. VM patching recommendation tools do not have the smarts to understand this difference.

Lineaje AI can distinguish compatible patches vs incompatible patches – improving security & optimizing software maintenance by 40%.!
