Not for ASE 15.5, which reached "end of mainstream maintenance" status on 31 March 2015. That means that development engineering stops developing fixes for that version.

Security fixes are typically simply included in regular rollup schedule but might also be provided in a "hot fix" rollup released between the scheduled full rollup releases.
Security issues are announced on a monthly "Security Patch Day"; the announcement will give the details on the type of patch the fix is contained in. https://support.sap.com/kb-incidents/notifications/security-notes/faq.html#tabSelector#0_3contains more information about Security Patch Day and how to subscribe for notifications.

The patch release history and future schedule for ASE 15.7 can be found at
