Nexus Firewall is now available to more than 10 million developers using Nexus Repository OSS. Nexus Firewall automatically prevents open source software components with known security vulnerabilities from entering your Nexus Repository. In the past Firewall required Nexus Repository Pro, but now it is available to all Nexus Repository customers.

Nexus Firewall has helped organizations save thousands of hours in manual open source approval processes by automatically quarantining components that fail to meet their governance policies. In fact, one organization saved over 34,000 hours in just 90 days after implementing Nexus Firewall, by eliminating the manual review process and blocking the vulnerable components from entering their DevOps pipeline.
