Defend Your Applications from Malicious Packages

Stop software supply chain compromises before they start

Today’s attackers aren’t just exploiting vulnerabilities

They’re inserting themselves directly into the software supply chain using malicious open source packages. From 2021 to 2022, the number of malicious packages published has more than quadrupled.

Learn more about how malicious packages work to compromise the software supply chain and how to defend yourself with resources from Mend’s experts on malicious open source packages.

It is not enough for application security programs to operate by checking the boxes needed for compliance. Modern programs are different — they run on CODEfidence.

What does that mean? A CODEfident program can answer the following questions:

Plan and prep

  • Do you know your software?
  • Do you know what open source code is in your software?
  • Does every application have a software bill of materials?
  • Are your dependencies up-to-date?

Safely prioritize and apply

  • Can you identify and prioritize the vulnerabilities that pose the biggest risk?
  • Do you know what vulnerabilities can be safely ignored?
  • Can you apply AppSec fixes without worrying about them breaking your build?

Ease the burden

  • Developers care about building applications, not AppSec. If you want them to do the latter, ease the burden.
  • Can you embed AppSec tools into development workflows?
  • Do you use automated remediation?
  • Is it easy and fast to onboard developers, whether 30 or 30,000?

Secure the software supply chain

  • Can you find and block malicious open source software before your developers can download it?
