The mix of open source software and proprietary code is today's application development reality. While companies should be using this strategy to fuel growth and innovation, the use of open source and third-party software introduces a new level of complexity, vulnerability and accountability.
The root cause of many application security vulnerabilities lies in the application source code. And existing perimeter defenses cannot actually detect the known vulnerabilities inside the software applications running on your network.
The open source and other third-party products inside your own applications often represent the lowest-cost opportunity for gaining access to valuable information assets. Yet, the necessary rework to repair security vulnerabilities ends up costing organizations both financially and strategically.
- How do you balance time-to-market needs against application development security?
- How can you accurately identify all open source and other third-party products youâ€™re using?
- How do you catch exploitable vulnerabilities in the open source software and other third-party products you're using?
Reliable Vulnerability Reporting Solution
Palamidaâ€™s vulnerability audits identify third-party code, verify code origin, and provide you with the relevant and known vulnerability reports associated with the open source code. Weâ€™ll also highlight published recommendations for remediation and code alternatives to encourage early risk mitigation and help you make more informed decisions during term negotiation.
Drawing on the industry's largest and most comprehensive library of its type, IP Amplifier provides detailed information on over 780,000 open source and other third-party product versions and incorporates relevant open source vulnerability alert information from repositories such as the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) run by The National Institute of Standards and Technology, with Common Vulnerability Exposure data from the MITRE Corporation. NVD is a comprehensive cyber security vulnerability database that integrates all publicly available U.S. Government vulnerability resources and provides references to industry resources. It is based on and synchronized with the CVE vulnerability-naming standard.
Palamidaâ€™s vulnerability audits deliver accurate inventory reports that push relevant, known vulnerability information about the third-party products and files you are using.
The software analyzes all aspects of a target company's code, compares it against the database to provide customers with quick and accurate assessments of vulnerability risk. Key product features for vulnerability audits include CodeRank technology and Auto-Inventory libraries. These are the only features available in the market that greatly reduce the time it takes to conduct forensic analysis on code matches and ensure a high rate of accuracy on third-party identification.
- Identify vulnerability risks before product deployment
- Create inventory of third-party code and licenses ongoing, automated monitoring of vulnerability alerts
- Ensure best possible security monitoring.
- Reduce legal and business exposure.
