Computer software is a complicated construct composed of numerous diverse components. Open-source software is becoming ever more common as a building block in software. This phenomenon is accompanied by an increase in exploitable vulnerabilities, so being able to tell quickly what your software is composed of is becoming increasingly important - both in applications that you develop yourselves and the ones from suppliers and vendors.

Keeping up with supply chain threats is hard work and, unfortunately, never-ending. There are some good frameworks out there that, when implemented, minimizes the risk of exposure. But for smaller organizations it can be a challenge to get the resources and time to implement them correctly. Not to mention keeping them maintained over time.

Open source provides a shortcut to functionality developed by others. But with exponential growth in the use of open source there is a very real risk of businesses failing to keep track of components, their dependencies and licenses. It's more important than ever to stay in control of the code your applications depend on and with typically hundreds of dependencies, this is not a small task. Avoid being the weakest link - understand the risks associated with your software supply chain and how to control them!

Bytesafe allows enterprises to increase their software supply chain security posture with automated best practices - and a unified workflow for security and developer teams. The Dependency Firewall enables enterprises to enforce open source usage policies and avoid threats by effectively blocking open source vulnerabilities and non-compliant licenses.

A Security Platform That Protects You From Open Source Software Supply Chain Attacks:

  • Dependency Firewall: The Dependency Firewall quarantines malicious open source before reaching developers and infrastructure - protecting data, assets and company reputation. Our policy engine evaluates threat signals such as known vulnerabilities, license information and customer defined rules.
  • Application Analysis: Having insight into what Open Source components are used in applications is crucial to avoid exploitable vulnerabilities. Software Composition Analysis (SCA) and Dashboard reporting give stakeholder a holistic overview with immediate insights into the current situation.
  • License Compliance: Discover when new open source licenses are introduced in the codebase. Automatically track license compliance issues and restrict problematic or unlicensed packages.
  • Issue Tracking: Issues are automatically created when problems are detected by the Dependency Firewall or Software Composition Analysis. Track progress from creation to remediation - with optional integration to GitHub Issues.

Manage Open Source Threats. Intelligently.
