Code snippet scanning is a common question we get from prospects. We typically try to dig at why the prospect actually thinks they need snippet matching. We think this comes from mis-informed demand. To create conversation with the masses on this topic, I’ve shared my perspective so you have a complete picture of the risk and cost of code snippet scanning.
Want to win a programmable LEGO robot? Share your voice in this year’s survey. The real intent of the Open Source Development Survey is to SPARK DISCUSSION. Remember, it’s not the stats that count…it’s the value of the discussions that follow that make this survey so important. So take 5 minutes and take the survey. (it takes less than 5 minutes, we promise)
I love watching TED Talks. To me, they are 15 well-spent minutes watching experts around the world provide great insights into things I thought I knew well. Some I had never imagined or topics on which I want to gain a deeper perspective.
Wow – have 2 weeks already passed since RSA? Before we get too far out from the event, I thought I’d share a few observations … At an event covering Security of all types, where Application Security as a very small subset and Open Source Security is an even smaller subset – I was impressed […]
The recent FS-ISAC whitepaper, “Appropriate Software Security Control Types for Third Party Service and Product Providers”, reveals the majority of internal software applications created by financial services involve acquiring open source components and libraries to augment custom developed software. While open source code is freely available and reviewed by many independent developers, that review effort does not translate into all software components and libraries being free from risk.
What can the financial services industry learn from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security? In this third segment of my blog series on open source component security as it relates to the recently updated Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) guidelines, I explore the need for speed: humans vs. machines.
In short, open source security can’t be an after thought. Security isn’t only the responsibility of ‘security professionals’ but instead a shared responsibility for all parties involved in developing or managing an organization’s software supply chain. Better put in the FS-ISAC guidelines…
Today Sonatype and HP announced Sonatype’s Component Lifecycle Management (CLM) analysis technology has been integrated into HP’s cloud-based software security solution – HP Fortify on Demand.
Let me open your eyes to a tidal wave of change that has already flooded the development organizations across Financial Services and other industries: “Software applications are no longer coded from scratch. They are assembled from building blocks — commonly known as open source components.” This is not a prediction about a tidal wave to […]
A sneak peek at interim results from the “Developers and Application Security: Who is Responsible?” 2014 survey are in, and there’s still time for you to participate. Here’s a little something for you to think about. Once upon a time, we used to develop our own software. But these days, we are developing 90% of […]
