Take charge of dependency updates

Give your devs the power—and confidence—to get proactive with dependency updates.

Security risk vs. dev deadlines

There’s a reason devs prioritize developing applications over running maintenance checks— applying updates takes time, especially if an update requires reworking your code.

The complexity of context

Especially in a complex dependency tree, it’s difficult to even know what libraries or packages are out of date. Manually looking for updates is time-consuming and unrewarding work.

Merge anxiety

Updates may not always be compatible with existing code, and without total confidence in merging an update, devs are nervous that an update will break their app.

Giving devs the tools they need to handle code security – by themselves.

Read how Trimble’s devs use Mend.io to fix vulnerabilities in their code repository without security looking over their shoulder.

“We find that developers prefer to have the tools to manage their own security during development. Mend allows them to fix issues in their code repository by clicking a button.”

– Nick Banta, Trimble VP of Global Cybersecurity
