Veracode - Mitigating the risk of using Open Source code in Application Development
Open source frameworks have changed the way applications are implemented in profound ways. They’ve ushered in a level of speed, innovation, and convenience that significantly alters the IT equation. With large numbers of developers and others contributing to a project, it’s possible to advance and evolve software in ways that wouldn’t have been imaginable in the past. What’s more, this form of open collaboration benefits everyone by making software available at a lower cost point — and sometimes even at no cost.
Make no mistake, open source software libraries are here to stay – and they can introduce new and sometimes dangerous risks to an enterprise. The use of open source code increases the number of users affected as well as the number of exposure points. It’s vital to have a strategy and framework in place to manage open source libraries and components. Otherwise, the road to digital transformation will likely be paved with frustrations, problems, and even failures.
Open source software risks revolve around three key areas: visibility, security, and governance.
In this session we will help you understand these factors and we will show you how Veracode can help you gain visibility of opensource Risk and formulate a stronger cybersecurity strategy that protects you from related cyber attacks.
