Why Open Source Use is Common and Problematic

Presented by

Brent Jenkins, Micro Focus Fortify and Curtis Yanko, Sonatype

About this talk

It's really no secret that organizations are developing faster, doing more builds and releasing more frequently. In order to keep up with this business demand, most applications aren't built completely from scratch. Developers utilize third party, or open source components as building blocks, so they can focus their time and energy on the parts of the application that are specific to their business logic or competitive features. With an average growth of 75% over the last two years, open source component usage continues to increase at a rapid pace. Over the past 15 years, thousands of companies such as Apple, JP Morgan Chase, and most notably, Equifax, have suffered breaches because of these open source components. This makes Software Composition Analysis (SCA) a “must-have” AppSec capability. Join Micro Focus Fortify and Sonatype in this webinar, “Why Open Source Use is Common and Problematic” to learn: • The State of Open Source Consumption • The Risk Involved • Why Software Composition Analysis is a “must-have” • How Micro Focus Fortify and Sonatype are solving the problem
