Using open source provides development teams with the speed and flexibility needed to deliver value at the pace required by their businesses to remain competitive. It’s little wonder that open source often composes up to 90% of codebases in modern applications.
But this growing reliance also introduces a significant amount of security and legal risk. Open source dependencies may contain exploitable security vulnerabilities, exposing the organization to attacks by hackers.  As more and more open source code is used, accidental license violations may result in fines and injunctions. Software Composition Analysis (SCA) has grown in importance over the last few years to help organizations manage and reduce this risk, and now plays a key role in application security. 
In this session, we will go over the three key ingredients making Snyk Open Source the leading software composition analysis (SCA) tool in the market: developer-friendliness, automated remediation, and security depth. If you are new to Snyk Open Source or have never heard about it, this is the session for you!


Leaving this session, you’ll have a crystal-clear understanding of the risk involved in pulling in open source packages, the challenges involved in managing this risk, what’s required to overcome these challenges, and where Snyk Open Source fits in as an SCA solution. 

Consider this a Snyk Open Source 101 session. You will learn about the three key foundations Snyk Open Source was built on and how they help over 1.5 million users worldwide find, prioritize, and fix security vulnerabilities and license issues in their open source dependencies:

  • Developer-friendliness
  • Automated remediation
  • Security depth 

For deeper dives into advanced Snyk Open Source topics, be sure to attend the following sessions:
