The challenges that face the security industry are daunting. Security keeps getting harder, not easier. The attack surface is constantly expanding. And seemingly anything introduced into a corporate environment can lead to a network compromise. That includes widely used open sourced software.   As part of the  effort to share threat intelligence and give organizations the tools for security success,  HP announced the HP Fortify Open Review Project at RSA 2014 this week.  This initiative provides an in-depth source of security intelligence to both identify and report on security vulnerabilities in widely used open-source software components.

 

Often, relying on open sourced software is the only way to get a project done. However, that also comes with significant security risks. That’s one of the reasons Fortify on Demand has decided to help via the HP Fortify Open Review Project.  Open source community members and software developers can benefit from access to a full set of analysis from HP Fortify and can easily review, comment and act on the findings to improve the security of their software. Additionally, HP has partnered with Sonatype to further reduce the risk introduced by open-source software. With the integration of Sonatype's component life cycle management (CLM) analysis technology, HP Fortify on Demand customers can identify third-party and open-source software components, detect known vulnerabilities or license risk, and prioritize remediation.
