Software supply chains (SSC) bring together fast-changing components from multiple sources, creating many possible points of failure.
Over 90% of applications use open source components, and half of all enterprises employ 12 or more distinct package technologies, expanding the attack surface for malicious actors. Cyberattacks are on the rise and new zero-day vulnerabilities are discovered regularly as reliance on open source software has amplified security risks, driving greater demands for transparency by governments and regulatory bodies.
Enterprises must control their SSC through deeply integrated solutions for development, security, automation, and operations that can be centrally managed. By unifying multi-technology development through a universal home for all software artifacts, organizations can enforce a uniform security posture and speed time to delivery. Knowing the provenance of every component, developers can block known vulnerabilities and remediate fast across the entire production inventory. Once established, this secure circle of trust can be extended globally across organizational boundaries.
CHALLENGES TODAY: FRICTIONLESS SOFTWARE DELIVERY WITH TRUST
Developing and Deploying with Confidence
Organizations must curate all software artifacts in a single system protected against mistakes or malice through authentication, access control, and checksum verification. Deliver software through this circle of trust to eliminate bottlenecks, enable automation, and speed mission-critical development. Core systems must reliably scale globally, and connect your trusted supply chain to all consumption points.
Securing the Attack Surface
To fortify the SSC, organizations require a holistic application security approach covering code, runtime, and deep analysis at the binary level, including zero-day vulnerability detection, secrets detection, and configuration analysis. With limited security resources, teams must focus on the threats that truly matter by leveraging advanced contextual analysis and remediation guidance. Security as an “add-on” doesn’t provide deeply integrated best practices across the entire SDLC.
Speed Time to Recovery
Understanding the provenance of every component in your supply chain is only possible through rich metadata, enabling powerful querying and traceability. Centralizing binaries with advanced metadata-based searchability is required to find and fix threats in all code across your entire SSC with speed and consistency, and block further use of the vulnerable or malicious components by developers.
HOW JFROG CAN HELP: BRING TOGETHER YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN IN A COHESIVE WAY
Universal Centralized Artifact Management
Enable developer teams to use any language technology through a single, industry leading binary management solution with native support for 30+ package and artifact types. Cache remote, open source dependencies to speed up development with fast, uninterrupted access and to enforce immutability of every version. Curate to ensure only approved packages are used.
Integrated Security Controls at Every Step
Find, fix, and fortify against vulnerabilities in all layers (including first- and third-party software), and enforce organization-wide usage policies on licenses and vulnerability thresholds. Rich metadata with every build provides visibility and control across the development lifecycle, with full traceability of every dependency for fast remediation and instant SBOM generation.
