More than 10 million software developers rely on Sonatype to innovate faster while mitigating security risks inherent in open source. Sonatype’s Nexus platform combines in-depth component intelligence with real-time remediation guidance to automate and scale open source governance across every stage of the modern DevOps pipeline. Our machine learning engine (Nexus Intelligence) has analyzed more than 70 million open source libraries, and we continuously feed this intelligence to our customers so they make better innovation decisions early and everywhere across their development lifecycle. DevOps teams eliminate friction associated with manual governance and ship secure software faster than ever – which makes everyone happy:  developers, security professionals, and IT ops.

Eliminate open source risk across the entire SDLC

It’s no secret. Developers use open source — in fact, 85% of a modern application is comprised of open source components and unfortunately one in ten open source component downloads contain a known security vulnerability. Given this inherent risk, how do modern software teams select the best components, govern open source usage, and still deliver at DevOps speed? Automated open source governance. Nexus Lifecycle empowers developers and security professionals to make safer open source choices across the SDLC, ensuring organizations continue to innovate with less risk.


Secure what you build and where you run it

In addition to choosing and configuring the right open source components, developers are increasingly responsible for writing code to provision and configure cloud infrastructure.

Combined with Nexus Lifecycle, the Infrastructure as Code (IaC) Pack gives you all of the information you need to both choose the best open source components and keep your cloud infrastructure secure. 

Protect containers from build to production

The increasing popularity of containers also means an increasing susceptibility to container attacks. But securing a container’s infrastructure requires more than just a quick vulnerability scan. End-to-end container security means taking a layered security approach – enforcing security and compliance requirements AND protecting networks, containers, and hosts in real time. 

Nexus Container does it all – providing full life cycle security for Kubernetes-native containers, from build to ship to run. We find – and stop – your vulnerable container images from deploying, and we are the only solution with behavioral inspection that can identify all network traffic at Layer 7 and every container process to automatically create behavior-based security policies, enforce Data Loss Protection, and prevent zero-day malware and network attacks, tunnel, and breaches.

Stop open source risk at the front door

As repository managers gain increasing popularity for caching and managing open source components throughout the SDLC, the need for protecting “the source” has never been greater. According to the 2019 State of the Software Supply Chain report, 10% of Java and 50% of Javascript components downloaded from public repositories contain a known security vulnerability. While local repos help engineering teams work more efficiently, unmanaged repositories can pose a significant risk to organizations.

How do organizations ensure that developers are selecting only the highest quality open source components? Nexus Firewall lets you take the good and leave the bad, by quarantining non-compliant components at the door and enforcing open source policies during proxy. Automated security policies prevent development teams from using non-compliant components, saving time and money across teams. Stop defective code at the start.

Monitor production and third-party apps for open source risk

Open source components age more like milk than wine. With 1 in 10 open source
component downloads containing a known security vulnerability, how do you
manage risk in your production or third-party applications? Organizations that outsource their development efforts to third parties must first understand what open source is included in those applications and if it poses any security or legal risk, before they put it in production.

Additionally, legacy applications no longer going through development must be analyzed to understand risk exposure relative to outdated open source components. Manual verification methods don’t scale. Visibility into open source usage is a requirement to mitigate risk.

Manage binaries and build artifacts across the entire SDLC

The need for organizations to deliver technologies faster is forcing developers to embrace the power of open source development. Today, almost 15,000 new or updated open source releases are being made available to developers every day.
The flow of these components into and through an organization creates a complex software supply chain that can negatively impact speed, efficiency, and quality if not properly managed.

Nexus Repository Manager serves as the universal local warehouse to efficiently
manage and distribute component parts, assemblies, and finished goods
across your entire software supply chain. Version control systems and package registries do not scale when managing proprietary, open source, and third-party components. Organizations need a central binary and build artefact repository to
orchestrate the flow of these components across the entire DevOps pipeline.
