Comprehensive Alternative to Snyk

Unlike Snyk, JFrog Xray is naturally integrated throughout your software supply chain by working alongside JFrog Artifactory, the database of DevOps, for the distribution and consumption of artifacts, and fully integrated into DevOps workflows. It doesn’t stop with scanning your components’ source code, but also recursively analyzes the final binary or container image to make sure all layers, including transitive dependencies, are scanned for vulnerabilities and license issues.

Snyk vs JFrog: System of Record

Snyk will always require a system of record to work alongside it – like JFrog Artifactory. With the native integration between JFrog Artifactory and JFrog Xray, it is incredibly easy to create actionable policies on your workflows, like immediately blocking a release process due to a policy violation.

Remediation with Snyk Compared to JFrog

Snyk users often complain about being flooded with alerts. Snyk’s mechanism for prioritizing remediation includes reachability analysis based only on a call-graph, which is expensive and requires building your application once more on Snyk servers. This cannot be compared with the full contextual analysis done by JFrog Advanced Security that allows true prioritization of long lists of vulnerabilities and working on the same binaries that will end up in your production. This delivers a more complete software supply chain solution with JFrog security versus Snyk security for developers.

FAQ

What’s the best Snyk alternative?

Developers looking for alternatives to Snyk will find many source code scanning and remediation tools like Mend, Veracode or JFrog. Companies comparing Snyk and JFrog (or other companies) will discover Snyk’s limitations across the supply chain workflow - mainly working only on the “left” side of the process with code only - often creating the need for other tools.

Is Xray better than Snyk?

JFrog Xray is fully integrated into the entire software supply chain workflow, with intentionally DevOps-centric security solutions. JFrog lets you go beyond source code with a developer-to-runtime focus on software binaries. Companies comparing tools like Snyk to JFrog Xray are often attracted to the integration JFrog Xray provides across the DevOps cycle instead of in source alone.
