Open Source Security

Open source is powerful, and the best developers in the world use it, but it’s time to stop ignoring the security concerns and start tracking the dependencies in your software

Did you know that up to 90 percent of an application typically consists of third-party components, mostly open source? And did you know that more than 50 percent of the Global 500 use vulnerable open-source components?

In today’s software development environment, an enormous amount of work is crowdsourced to a large community of open-source developers and communities with very little understanding of the security problems that this creates, let alone ways to manage this risk.

Open Source is a critical part of your applications and Docker containers, but with thousands of open source vulnerabilities reported every year, you need to make sure you know what open source is making its way into production.
