How do we compare to Anaconda?

ActiveState Python: the easiest way to work with Python that just happens to be the most secure. 

Complete Python Catalog

All the Python packages your teams require are available in a single, central location — the ActiveState Platform — and can be shared with your entire team. 

That includes not only developers but also Compliance Officers, who can identify all the licenses associated with each dependency. Security Officers can view all the vulnerabilities associated with each dependency, and receive notifications when new ones arise.

A Secure Python Supply Chain


ActiveState builds all Python packages from vetted source code, including linked C and Rust libraries using a secure, SLSA-compliant build service. 

That means no longer having to take a risk on including pre-built PyPI or Conda Forge packages, which are primary vectors of software supply chain attacks.

No More Waiting for New Releases


At ActiveState we understand you can’t wait 3-6 months for a new distro update. We regularly import new packages/package versions, as well as new Python releases. This means you can always create or update your environment with the latest packages/Python on demand in order to speed up vulnerability remediation, and ensure you can take advantage of new features.
