Secure your entire software supply chain

Keep your applications clear from malicious software packages throughout the full software development lifecycle.

Hacks and breaches are just the beginning

Unfortunately, the open source packages developers rely on to get their work done also make great hiding places for bad actors seeking to cause damage to enterprise organizations:

  • Hackers inject malicious code into open source packages to quickly introduce vulnerabilities into tens of thousands of open source dependencies.
  • Scanning the code manually, and regularly, to catch vulnerabilities takes too much time and effort for developers – meaning many weaknesses are accidentally missed.
  • Open source packages are frequently updated, making it incredibly difficult for companies to stay on top of all vulnerabilities across different versions.

Broad coverage across all repositories and CI/CD pipelines.

Seeking to secure their OSS across multiple product lines, Seagate found that could give them broad security coverage while maintaining central visibility and control.

“The biggest value that we get out of Mend is broad visibility into our open-source usage across the company. [And] when it comes to using different versions of packages, Mend makes it easy to know what needs to be updated, and what is [already updated] from multiple versions ago.”

Cover your repositories, CI/CD pipelines, and beyond to stop malicious code packages and vulnerabilities from slipping in, and prioritize their swift remediation with Mend SCA.

Map all open source dependencies

Mend SCA quickly identifies all your open source dependencies and maps them to one of over 2,700 licenses tracked in our database, giving you a robust picture of all dependencies.

Supported with rich context

As Mend SCA compiles your open source dependencies, it automatically provides you with rich context about each, including source code, attributions, and documentation.

Risk-based prioritization

Dependencies are then ranked by their level of risk, based on an advanced reachability analysis that determines if the open source code reaches functions in direct and transitive dependencies.

Set and enforce licensing policies

Mend SCA lets you whitelist or blacklist open source licenses to establish ground rules for compliance upfront – making it easy for developers to take them into account.
