Presented by

About this talk

At its best, open source software (OSS) provides developers with the Java coding foundations they need, freeing up their time and energy to focus on building custom applications. By leveraging readily-available OSS, companies can speed up their digital transformations and deploy resources more efficiently; its appeal is so vast that recent ESG research found that 80% of organizations currently use OSS, while a further 19% are planning to do so. Yet many OSS implementations are not as secure as they should be and these vulnerabilities can cause significant damage if left unresolved. Third-party code can sometimes contain security risks and so it is critical that IT teams have the support they need to identify vulnerabilities and remediate them quickly. Maintaining visibility over OSS is fundamental in order to fix errors and reduce attack areas, but many companies have a security skills gap in their development teams. Others may find themselves bogged down by monitoring, reducing the value of using OSS in the first place. By accessing support through a Java solution like Azul, companies can fill this skills void and embed security within developer workflows, so that Java is optimized. In this webinar from Azul and ESG, industry experts will break down the biggest trends in OSS usage, the critical vulnerabilities of Java and the steps your organization can take to remediate any security risks. Tune in to hear more about: — The key takeaways from the attack on log4j and other exploits of OSS vulnerabilities — What a secure OSS system looks like in practice — How to partner with a Java security solution like Azul to streamline OSS management — And much more
