At Accurics™, we envision a world where organizations can innovate in the cloud with confidence. Our mission is to enable cyber resilience through self-healing as organizations embrace cloud native infrastructure. The Accurics platform self-heals cloud native infrastructure by codifying security throughout the development lifecycle. It programmatically detects and resolves risks across Infrastructure as Code before infrastructure is provisioned, and maintains the secure posture in runtime by programmatically mitigating risks from changes. Accurics enables organizations of all sizes to achieve cloud cyber resilience through free cloud-based and open source tools such as Terrascan™.

Up to 90% of any piece of software is from open source, creating countless dependencies and areas of risk to manage. FOSSA is the most reliable automated policy engine for legal teams to maintain license compliance, security to fix vulnerabilities, and engineering to improve code quality across the entire software supply chain. As the only developer-native open source management platform, FOSSA fully integrates with your existing CI/CD pipeline to provide complete visibility and context earlier in the software development lifecycle. For the first time, teams can collaboratively shift left and audit, analyze, control, and remediate license issues and vulnerabilities right in their existing workflows.

The leading solution for agile open source security and license compliance management, WhiteSource integrates with the DevOps pipeline to detect vulnerable open source libraries in real-time.

It provides remediation paths and policy automation to speed up time-to-fix. It also prioritizes vulnerability alerts based on usage analysis.

We support over 200 programming languages and offer the widest vulnerability database aggregating information from dozens of peer-reviewed, respected sources.
