Overview

At Nucleus, we strive to continuously level up our attention to detail and quality of implementation with each new release. One customer recently noticed and told us that our approach is “refreshing compared to many other security vendors”. We thrive on feedback like this so please, don’t hold back! We’re continuing to upgrade our application across the board in all areas, so expect to see continued improvements over the coming months and years.

In this release, we’re very excited to announce Nucleus Teams! This is a completely new set of features across the platform for managing vulnerabilities and assets across groups of users. With Teams, you can solve one of the most challenging issues in vulnerability programs, how to represent ownership of assets and vulnerabilities on those assets. Within Nucleus, Teams can now own and support assets, as well as be assigned vulnerabilities intelligently, either using the Nucleus Automation Engine or manually. Using the Vulnerabilities Assigned To My Team page, users within your organization are now a core participant in your vulnerability management program and will have all the context and information they need to drive faster remediation activities at scale. You can find out more about the Nucleus Teams release here!

We’ve also released a much-anticipated power feature for managing vulnerabilities at scale – the ability to bulk edit vulnerabilities. Now you can use the UI to make sweeping changes to the vulnerability data you manage, such as updating a vulnerability attribute (e.g. changing the severity) or completing a workflow task. A deep-dive blog into this new feature is coming soon!

And of course, no release is complete without some connector news. We are pleased to announce the beta release of our new GitHub Connector for Code Scanning, enabling you to easily import CodeQL scanning results for source code repositories into your Nucleus project. Read more about the GitHub Integration here.

Finally, we also released some significant speed improvements for viewing vulnerability data in the platform. Both the vulnerabilities trends page and the resolved page should now load almost instantaneously, representing (in some cases) up to a 3000% increase in speed.
