We have discovered 2 third party products that run inside DSM that were not the current version. One was running with an expired date. Apache Derby and Websphere Liberty software were found to be running old release levels that are not being updated with new versions of DSM. In both cases the version running was over 3 years old. We discovered this in reports we run that compares current release dates with the actually release date running and these were not compliant. There may be more but these were the one's we caught. These should be kept current on a more regular schedule,,,every 6 months, once a year or some more timely update.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||All customers would like to have current levels|
How should it work?
Check for current release levels of all 3rd party products running in DSM. Compare these against the release levels in the current version of DSM. If they lag behind the current release level or have expired, pull the current level into DSM prior to the next upgrade.
|Priority Justification||This is a mandatory requirement for us that can result in an audit failure needing an exception override|
