79-pg eBook: Open source security

Open source software allows developers to focus on what’s important instead of having to start from square one every single time. Building applications from a pre-built foundation is hugely beneficial, and, as a result, open source usage has only increased.

Except now, some of those foundations are cracking. Most open source components contain vulnerabilities and risks to security that need to be addressed immediately.

In this 79-page eBook, find an in-depth analysis on the current state of open source security. The eBook features insights into finding and fixing vulnerable packages, integrating testing to prevent vulnerabilities, and choosing a SCA solution.

  • Whats SCA, again?

    Software composition analysis (SCA) is back. But what is it, again?

    Open source technology is well known for its accessibility – and its risks. As software innovation centers around open source software specifically, these threats need to be assessed, monitored, and quashed. This is where SCA comes in.

    Read this report to learn what exactly SCA is and how it effectively dismantles major security threats in open source software – with automated ease.

  • Weeding out vulnerabilities in open source software

    The open source software landscape is rooted in rich soil. Massive acquisitions, huge ROIs, and increasing investments have all helped open source grow at an unprecedented speed – but someone forgot to lock the garden gate.

    Open source security vulnerabilities are growing rapidly, too. Indirect dependencies account for 78% of all vulnerabilities. Learning how to identify, monitor, and minimize these threats is crucial to any open source business strategy.

    In this 50-page report, Snyk examines the state of security in open source software through survey results, external research, and internal data. Read the report now to get out of the weeds.
