Open Source Creates Both Opportunity and Risk

Your team works hard to produce quality applications on tight deadlines, which often means relying on open source libraries to keep Agile and DevOps projects on track.

Having access to plug-and-go code is invaluable when you’re racing against the clock and working to keep costs down, but the accessibility of open source libraries comes with a caveat: increased risk of a data breach.

Open Source Creates Opportunity and Risk

We have well over 1000 deployments a month, but our developers became so efficient that scans went from sixteen minutes to less than six minutes.

Manage Open Source Risk

With Veracode Software Composition Analysis (SCA), teams can take advantage of open source libraries without increasing risk.

With a strong focus on visibility, security, and governance, we help development teams safely innovate with open source, maintain velocity, and deliver secure applications to production.

Identify Vulnerabilities in Open Source

Scan open source dependencies for known vulnerabilities.

Get data-driven recommendations for version updating with details on the fix impact to your code before automating the change.

Gain comprehensive, centralized visibility across different environments and applications, and detect flaws earlier.

Confidently Reduce Risk

Create a concise, focused open source security policy that promotes collaboration across security and development teams.

Find and fix open source vulnerabilities impacting regulatory compliance and reduce the risk of data breaches.

Detect license risk, efficiently manage usage, and avoid fines and penalties.

Get Fast Feedback in the Pipeline and IDE

Get ahead of unplanned problems and unexpected work with CI integration, fast scans, and results in seconds – all within your environment.

Veracode SCA integrates into the pipeline through a simple agent-based scan. Use the same agent directly in your IDE to get feedback earlier.

Make security a natural, seamless part of your development lifecycle without sacrificing speed or innovation.

Find Vulnerabilities Beyond the NVD

Vulnerabilities are often reported late, or not at all, to the National Vulnerability Database (NVD).

Find new vulnerabilities in your code before they are registered with the NVD, helping you maintain a full view of open source risk.

Our powerful, cloud-native solution uses data mining, natural language processing, and machine learning to identify security vulnerabilities from commit messages and bug reports.

Prioritize Vulnerabilities in the Execution Path

Identify which vulnerabilities in the open source libraries are being called with call graphs from Veracode SCA.

Quickly assess multiple vulnerability dimensions, including technical risk, size of change, and effort to fix, and make confident prioritization decisions.

Don’t waste time fixing issues that don’t matter.

Assess Dependencies Several Layers Deep

Many open source libraries depend on other libraries, typically called transitive dependencies. Veracode SCA finds vulnerabilities not only in direct dependencies but also several layers deep – so you can create secure software confidently, knowing you’re fully covered.

Get Remediation Guidance and Automation

Just upgrading to the latest version isn’t always the best option, especially if it contains a different vulnerability or could break your application.

Arm developers with automated, peer, and expert guidance so they can fix, not just find, flaws.

Get advice on which library version to update to, or even have Veracode SCA generate the pull request for review.

Veracode SCA in Action

A global bank integrated Veracode SAST and SCA into its software development lifecycle via build server and IDE integration, enabling it to go from assessing applications only twice a year with a legacy on-premises SAST tool to assessing within each development sprint.
