verinice 1.11 gets Elasticsearch and optimized GSTOOL import

Logo verinice

SerNet's verinice.TEAM released version 1.11 of the ISMS tool verinice. New features include the Elasticsearch framework integration and significant GSTOOL-Import improvements

Elasticsearch now enriches verinice and verinice.PRO with a performant as well as flexible full-text search. The decision in favour for the open source framework, which e.g. Wikimedia uses, is explained by verinice team lead Alexander Koderman: "In our tests Elasticsearch proved to be very fast. Virtually every request could be processed within a few milliseconds." Elasticsearch also allows to offer all search functions in full for each database. Koderman: "verinice supports various databases such as Oracle, PostgreSQL and DerbyDB. These may differ in their full-text indexing behavior and features." Also, with the now implemented solution  users of the free verinice single-user version with offline database receive the same search function quality as verinice.PRO users .

The verinice.TEAM has carried out numerous and extensive improvements to the GSTOOL import. In verinice 1.11 for example speed and disk space consumption have been optimized by large.  GSTOOL is the official but now deprecated software tool published by the German BSI for its IT-Baseline standard.

More detailed information about the new features, other new features and improvements included in the <link http: en verinice-support release-notes _blank external-link-new-window verinice release>release notes for verinice 1.11. An update to version 1.11.1 is also already available and fixes a problem with the automatic language setting.
