A brand new version of the Local Agent

The Local Agent has been entirely revisited to provide Highlight users with extreme speed and flexibility for application onboarding. Highlight is now able to automatically detect and scan technologies within a set of folders, while new configuration settings have been introduced such as technology or folder exclusion. Risk assessment of an application portfolio has never been so fast and easy.
