Endor Labs and Intuitive.Cloud announce strategic partnership and investment with the goal of taking on OSS sprawl.
What is reachability-based dependency analysis?
As software engineers, we (should) strive to write as little code as possible. This is understandable: new code has new bugs and will need maintenance in the future. One way of avoiding writing software is to reuse Open-Source Software (OSS) libraries, hosted on centralized code repositories, such as Maven or NPM.
Introducing The State of Dependency Management Report

What are Maven dependency scopes and their related security risks?
This article explores Maven dependency scopes: what are they, what are they used for, and how do they impact security risks?
The Government's Role in Maintaining Open-Source Security
Open-source software has become ubiquitous, powering many of the most critical infrastructure systems in the world, but its community-driven model presents a unique security risk. Because open-source projects are maintained by volunteers, they are often neglected and fall behind on security updates, which can have devastating consequences when critical infrastructure systems rely on vulnerable open-source components.
Introduction to Program Analysis
Program analysis is the process of checking whether or not a piece of software fulfills certain properties. This article explores the basics of program analysis, so we could then dive deeper into the world of call graphs.

How Zero Trust principles can accelerate open source adoption in enterprises
Open source is a huge boost to productivity, and today we trust it implicitly even if we think we don’t. That comes with a lot of risk, a lot of friction, and doesn’t let us make the most out of open source software. Zero Trust principles can help us get open source adoption to its full potential.
