Are You Aware of Security Vulnerabilities in Your Product?

You are going to great lengths to make sure that there are no security vulnerabilities in the software you develop, but what about the open source components you use?
Hundreds of open source security vulnerabilities are discovered and reported every year and hackers can easily take advantage of it.
Therefore, the response to released security vulnerabilities should be immediate.

The problem is that tracking open source vulnerabilities in your product manually is nearly impossible. Why?
CVEs usually don’t specify the version of the component they are related to, so engineers need to check every single CVE manually to see if it impacts their products. Impractical!

Until Now.
WhiteSource automatically detects all security vulnerabilities related to the open source components in your product and alerts in real-time throughout the software lifecycle (SDLC):

Check which open source security vulnerabilities hide in your product.

Open Source Security

WhiteSource sends you immediate automatic alerts when:

  • You add components with known security vulnerabilities
  • New security vulnerabilities are discovered in components you’re using, you will even get alerts regarding historic versions you are not actively working on (unlike other tools, such as Black Duck Hub)
  • New fixes are released for any of the components used in your software
  • Updates are available of any of your software’s open source components


How Does WhiteSource Work?

Install the relevant WhiteSource plugin and run your build


Help your developers by using WhiteSource agile solution that:

  • Calculates the checksum for all your components without ever scanning your code (like open source scanning software such as Black Duck Protex, Palamida, OpenLogic, Protecode does)
  • Compares the checksum with WhiteSource’s databases to identify all your open source components, including all dependencies
  • Pulls relevant information like licenses, security vulnerabilities and updates from WhiteSource’s databases
  • Matches the retrieved data with your company’s pre-defined policies
  • Generates immediate up-to-date reports with all components and issues detected


Check out the integrations we offer:



Inventory Report

Always up-to-date: WhiteSource reports get updated each time you run your build.

Comprehensive: each report contains complete information about all your open source components including dependencies.

One stop shop: WhiteSource supports all programming languages and development environments (unlike other tools such as Black Duck Hub), so you can view all your products in one dashboard.

Open Source Licenses

WhiteSource helps you to keep a handle on your open source usage by:

  • Detecting all open source components and licenses used in your product, including all dependencies
  • Creating complete and accurate management and legal reports within minutes
  • Automatically enforcing your compliance policy to ensure your developers only use licenses that you approve (including special automatic approval processes with complete history tracking)


Open Source Due Diligence

WhiteSource will enable you and the acquiring team to gain full control of the open source in your software, by automatically:

  • Discover all your open source components and dependencies
  • Enforce license risk and compliance policy
  • Identify all known security vulnerabilities in your product


Automated Policies

You can set up a compliance policy based on a range of conditions, for example:

  • Blacklist or whitelist the license types that you approve or disapprove. Any license type that’s not listed will require management’s approval or it can fail the build
  • Security sensitivity severity as defined in the CVE
  • Additional conditions like: Library name, new versions, library age etc.
