We recently released our integration with New Relic, a leading Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution – we're really excited about showing our customers how offline AVM impacts their application performance online. We wrote the blog post for their blog, and shared more about our integration with New Relic and the benefits this partnership can bring to our customers.
When designing an application, there's often a trade-off between performance and security. For example, using a larger key size for encryption will make it harder to decipher, but it will also take more resources to encrypt and decrypt. When it comes to writing secure source code, however, this performance/security trade-off may not apply.
Last week Lucent Sky participated in FinTech Asia, hosted by Visa at the Red Dot Museum in Singapore. Lucent Sky was a technology partner for the event, which featured a select group of technology companies alongside tens of banks, payment providers and financial institutions throughout South East Asia.
Highlights from the event included presentations by the Chief Creative Officer of IDEO, Paul Bennett, and a series of panel discussions highlighting the rise of the sharing economy in Asia, innovation strategy and practice, and prevailing trends in FinTech innovation in Asia.
The evening of May 14 we had the pleasure of hosting SWELL, Yushan Ventures and over 30 members of the Taipei startup community for a conversation on corporate innovation. Held at our Taipei clubhouse and event space, the event focused on ways for startups to engage in meaningful relationships with brands and large corporations. Mike Chen, CEO of SWELL (@gotoswell), a Silicon Valley-based corporate innovation platform, and Sam Lai of HP gave brief talks about the role of partnerships in building fruitful corporate-startup relationships.
Security researchers recently revealed a major flaw in the OpenSSL encryption software library used by many websites to protect customers’ data. The vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” was determined to be present across a number of software vendors, and has the potential to allow unauthorized access to a website’s customer data and traffic encryption keys.
The team at Lucent Sky immediately conducted a comprehensive review, and have determined that our services, including CLEAR On-Demand and instances of CLEAR Enterprise and Standard deployed on the cloud, have not been impacted by the OpenSSL “Heartbleed” vulnerability. All versions of Lucent Sky CLEAR deployed on premise are similarly not impacted.
Lucent Sky will continue to implement the highest development standards and constant vigilance to ensure that no similar vulnerability interrupts our ability to service customers to the highest degree of safety and satisfaction. “Heartbleed” is another demonstration of the critical nature of application vulnerabilities, and reaffirms the need to vigilantly implement security practices.
