The Open Source Conundrum

More than ever, development groups are relying heavily on open source libraries to provide a rich feature set that can’t be built from scratch in a reasonable time. We recently conducted a survey of developers that found that 93 percent of respondents use commercial and/or open source components. At the same time, Veracode’s most recent scan data found that a whopping 88% of Java applications had at least one flaw in a component.
How can we keep innovating quickly without introducing vulnerabilities into our code base? The solution is multi-faceted – part education, part technology, part process change.
