Understanding Your Open Source Risk

White Paper Published By: Veracode
Published:  Jul 01, 2019
Type:  White Paper
Length:  8 pages

The demand on software development teams is greater than ever. With the cultural move towards DevOps, the implementation of CI/CD systems, and the desire to operate in an agile manner, developers are being asked to push out more software - and in shorter periods of time - than ever before.

In turn, developers are increasingly relying on open source libraries, or pre-built pieces of code available online, which allow them to add functionality to their code without having to build it from scratch. As a result, software today is rarely completely made of first-party code and is more often "assembled" from other sources. With this comes new security problems.
