We have added two more videos in the Tips from the Trenches Series free video based training, explaining how to configure and use Nexus Firewall to block and quarantine open source components with known vulnerabilities. 

Below are the two most recent videos in the series, highlighting how to configure and use Nexus Firewall. We also have an overview article, The Nexus Firewall – Perimeter Defense for Software Development (published here last week), to explain how Nexus Firewall works.

Want to learn more about "OSS Firewalls". One of the best papers I have read recently comes from Neil MacDonald and Ian Head at Gartner, entitled “How to Seamlessly Integrate Security into DevOps".  It's worth a read and discusses this topic more in depth.
