Important Service Information – Outlook on the next LUCY Release
The next release after LUCY V4.8.4 will require a new installation. Commercial customers will be migrated free of charge by our support team.
Why is a migration necessary? Because the Linux operating system underlying the LUCY system is being switched from Debian to Ubuntu. The reason for the migration to Ubuntu is that Debian will stop supporting the Debian Linux version 9 currently used by LUCY in June 2022. This means that security updates will no longer be available after that date. Switching to Ubuntu increases investment protection and security because it offers up to 10 years of support (security updates).
Our support team is expected to contact all commercial customers starting February 2022 so that the migration can be planned together early. For further queries, support can be contacted directly at any time.

LUCY Security provides companies with a standard software to test employees by means of attack simulations. They can also use malware simulations to test the company-wide infrastructure and hundreds of training templates to train employees on information security issues. The results of the various tests can be continuously checked with the platform and finally enriched with reporting functions.
