Open source software is an integral part of today’s technology ecosystem, powering everything from enterprise and mobile applications to cloud computing, containers and the Internet of Things.
While open source offers attractive economic and productivity benefits for application development, it also presents organizations with significant security challenges. Every year, thousands of new open source security vulnerabilities – such as Heartbleed, Venom and Shellshock – are reported. Unfortunately, many organizations lack visibility into and control of their open source. Addressing this challenge is vital for ensuring security in applications and containers.
Whether you’re building software for customers or for internal use, the majority of the code is likely open source and securing it is no easy task. In this session, you’ll learn about:
• The evolving DevOps and software security assurance lifecycle in the age of open source
• The software security considerations CISOs, security, and development teams must address when using open source
• An automated approach to identifying vulnerabilities and managing software security assurance for custom and open source code.
