The widespread adoption of open source means an increase in open source security vulnerabilities. Because these security vulnerabilities are disclosed publicly, they are prime targets for hackers. If you’re not regularly managing your open source components and all their dependencies, your organization is at risk.
The open source community is decentralized by nature, and finding information about vulnerabilities is difficult and varies by project. To reduce risk, enterprises need visibility into their open source use. Managing open source security at scale requires a solution that goes beyond detection to focus on the prioritization, remediation, and prevention of open source vulnerabilities.
