In today's software development environment, a large amount of work is crowd sourced to a big community of open-source developers and communities with very understanding of the cyber security issues that this creates, let alone ways to manage this risk. We all know that we can't stop using open-source, and we know that no one will stop using it.
Why Open Source testing is essential
Open-source is very powerful, and the best developers across the world use it, but it’s time to stop disregarding the security concerns and start tracking the dependencies in your software.
Web-security has to be taken seriously and even the best of us aren’t safe from it. Web-security testing tools are very useful in proactively scanning application vulnerabilities and/or safeguarding websites and web servers against attacks.
Open-source vulnerability information is fragmented
CVE and NIST Vulnerability Database show very little information on open source vulnerabilities. Information on open-source vulnerabilities is divided among so many different resources that it’s very hard to trace them.
What you don’t know can hurt you
What’s in the source code matters when merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions are in action. Undiscovered open-source in applications can produce costly license violations. These, along with security issues in proprietary, open source, and other third-party software, can have a significant negative impact on the value of your software assets.
Features of using our tool
Identify and Monitor
- Scan for vulnerabilities every commit
- Visualize your vulnerability status for each dependency and repository
- Automated pull requests for your vulnerabilities
- Vulnerability prioritization
- Enforceable CI rules for intake of packagesOR
- Identify components and its licenses, and flag components with licenses that are unknown so they can be reviewed.
- Obligation summaries explain licenses and their requirements in simple and standard language so development and legal teams can quickly assess the impact of including a component in their application and prioritize it accordingly.
- Automatically mark potential license issues so teams are in compliance with policy enforcement, and it helps them accurately report license terms for customers.
frequently asked questions
- Whether your software is provided via the web(cloud) or embedded in a hardware device, compliance with open source licenses is very important. Minimize the cost and risk to intellectual property with greater insight into license obligations and attribution requirements.
- Loss of customer’s trust.
- Loss of important information.
- Information theft by an unauthorized user.
- Inconsistent website performance.
- Unexpected breakdown.
- Additional costs required for repairing websites after an attack.
Open source software is software with source code that anyone can inspect, modify, and enhance.
"Source code" is the part of software that most computer users don't ever see; it's the code computer programmers can manipulate to change how a piece of software—a "program" or "application"—works.
