Safeguard your Open Source Environment against Supply Chain attacks.

One in five developers have no visibility into where their open source packages are obtained.

Open source package use is ubiquitous in Enterprise applications.

Beyond debugging there is often additional levels of review to ensure the sources of these packages are trusted or even that the artifacts are genuine from the source.

Supply Chain vulnerabilities occur when the original software is tampered with and redistributed as the genuine article.

Altered code goes unnoticed in key systems and performs actions that initially may seem benign, but have significant repercussions when left unchecked.

Other vendors redistribute pre-bundled binaries.

They cannot provide details on how these bundled were made or where the source code originated, because that level of details is not included in their build process.

By acquiring your software artifacts from a trusted vendor of open source, you eliminate the risk of getting packages from unknown sources on the internet.

Knowing the provenance of the source code, and the build process of their artifacts you can ensure the code is exactly what you expect it to be.

ActiveState can supply trusted distributions for you development environment.

By setting policies to only use trusted ActiveState artifacts you limit the risk of CVEs and Licence exemptions, as well as nearly eliminating supply chain attacks.

We build from source.

That means we get source code directly from the authors and build it in a hermetic build system.
